Beşiktaş vice-president Ahmet Nur Çebi recently revealed that the club would accept an offer of €14 million for the Senegalese international.

Ba however, appears reluctant to move to China and has his sights set on a return to the Premier League should he part ways with Beşiktaş.

The 29-year-old recently revealed that he believes he has another big move ahead of him and that a return to England could be on the cards.

“The fans in Turkey are very passionate and create a great atmosphere but it is no secret that the standard of football is of a lower quality than in England,” Ba told World Soccer.

“The way I left Chelsea was not ideal but that’s life. I am still young and I believe I have another big move left in my career. The Premier League interests me and I am keeping my options open.”

The Times reported that West Ham and West Brom are both interested in the 29-year-old striker.

Ba scored a career high 27 goals in all competitions last season for the Black Eagles after joining on a €6 million move from Chelsea.
