Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o holds talks with Besiktas

Chelsea look set to lose striker Samuel Eto’o at the end of the season after he opened talks with Besiktas over a move.

The 33-year-old, whose contract at Stamford Bridge expires in the summer, has established himself as the Blues’ top scoring striker this term with 12 goals.

But despite Jose Mourinho hinting that he might offer the experienced frontman a new deal, Besiktas are keen to snatch him away.

The Turkish club are believed to have flown senior officials to London this week to hold negotiations with Eto’o, with a two-year contract on the table.

It’s not clear whether he would be keen on a move to Turkey, but the security of a 24 month contract as well as the possibility to join the coaching staff after would make the switch attractive.

Besiktas have close links with Chelsea and they have been trying to bag a big name striker for months, having held talks with the club over Demba Ba during the January window.
