Emmanuel Adebayor could leave Tottenham Hotspur before the end of the month after Besiktas revealed that they believe a deal can be struck if they escape a European ban.
The Turkish side are facing a ban from next season's Europa League after being accused of match-fixing but have appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport and feel they have a good chance of getting the all clear.
Besiktas are said to be willing to spend £6.6m on Adebayor but they are aware that any deal will have to wait until their appeal is heard.
"We are interested in Adebayor and a transfer can always be done," Besiktas president Fikret Orman told the Daily Mirror. "Once [the UEFA case] is settled, I am going to London to sort out the transfer."
A final decision will be made on 30 August but in the meantime Besiktas have been granted permission to play in the preliminary stages of the Europa League.
Adebayor still has two years remaining on his Tottenham contract but there is a belief that manager Andre Villas-Boas would be prepared to listen to offers after a disappointing campaign from the Togo international last season.
The 29 year old would score just five Premier League goals and struggled to replicate the form that had seen him impress during a season-long loan from Manchester City.
With Tottenham currently in negotiations to sign Valencia forward Roberto Soldado, it could spell the end of Adebayor's stay at White Hart Lane.
While Spurs will have to wait until the end of the month to discover the fate for Besiktas they will hope to tie up a deal for Soldado in the coming weeks as Villas-Boas will not want to wait until the final days of the transfer window to find a replacement for Adebayor.
