Beşiktaş are currently involved in the Süper Lig title race and club board members have been keen on playing down transfer speculation in order to not upset members of the squad.

The Black Eagles are reported to be in talks with Cech according to football agent Viktor Kolar.

“I have been in contact with Beşiktaş, we are in talks, Turkey is a choice for Cech but we will decide when the league is over,” Kolar is quoted as saying by Fanatik.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho recently stated that if Cech were to leave it would only be to a non-English club.

“So for me, decision number one: Petr will stay. After that, second point to go but not in England. The option I don’t want is for him to go to an English club,” Mourinho was quoted as saying Sky Sports.

The Blues have built strong ties with Beşiktaş recently, including consultation for youth development and future projects.
