The Turkish champions are currently working towards a permanent move for the German international after he spent last season on loan with the club.

Gomez was pivotal to Besiktas' title success, their first for seven years, as he scooped the Gol Kralı as the league's top scorer, netting an impressive 26 goals in 33 appearances.

His great form earned him a spot in Joachim Lowe's German squad for Euro 2016, and the striker again found the net at the tournament, scoring twice to make him his country's equal all-time leading scorer in the European Championships with five strikes, shared with Jurgen Klinsmann.

However, as of yet his parent club Fiorentina are yet to agree a fee with Besiktas over his permanent transfer, and should talks continue to falter, the Turkish champions may turn their attentions to Chelsea's injury plagued French striker.

Loic Remy missed much of last season through injury, having made the switch across West London to Stamford Bridge from QPR in 2014 for £10.5 million.

And the Frenchman could be an economically more viable solution for Besiktas, with the forward likely to be sold cheap after struggling last term, while Gomez, who is older by two years at 31, has seen his value soar after a good season and an impressive Euro 2016.
