Besiktas have reportedly been surprised by just how insistent Spurs are towards signing centre-back Dusko Tosic.
Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Serbian centre-back but they do not need him.
Dusko Tosic has won successive Super Lig titles with Besiktas - but does not seem like a particularly inspired addition to Spurs' squad.
Dusko Tosic played a combined five league games at Portsmouth and QPR - and has been linked with Spurs at the age of 33.
Swansea City were also keen on the former Portsmouth defender.
