Beşiktaş striker Demba Ba will only consider leaving the club for the Premier League according to NTV Spor.
Black Eagles vice-president Ahmet Nur Çebi recently revealed that the club would only consider selling Ba if his €14 million asked price is matched.
Chinese giants Shanghai Shenhua are reported to have made a €14 million bid for the Senegalese international but Ba refused to enter into negotiations.
Beşiktaş board member Ahmet Ürkmezgil confirmed that the club have received a bid matching their asking price for Ba.
“Nothing has been agreed yet the Chinese side wants him for and have made us an offer of €14 million but nothing has been finalised as of yet,” Ürkmezgil told Radyospor.
Ba still has two-years left on his contract with Beşiktaş and scored a career high 27 goals in his first season at the club after joining from Chelsea last summer.
The Senegalese international has stated that he would return to the Premier League but he has settled in well at Beşiktaş and head coach Şenol Güneş is keen on keeping him at the club.
“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.”
Ba does have interest from the Premier League with both West Ham and West Brom set to make a move for the experienced striker according to the Times.
