Ba recently hinted that he would be open to a transfer but only to the Premier League.

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

Ba is of course no stranger to Premier League football enjoying spells at Newcastle United, West Ham and of course Chelsea.

The Senegalese international bagged 14 goals in 51 appearances for the Blues and 29 goals in 58 appearances for Newcastle United.

West Ham fans also have fond memories of the powerful striker for his seven goals in 13 games that kept the Hammers in the Premier League back in 2011.

Ba scored a career high 27 goals in all competitions for Beşiktaş last season and has two years left on his contract.
