The Turkish businessman firmly denied the player in question was West London outcast Petr Cech, but said in no uncertain terms that a deal is in the pipeline.
As quoted on the Daily Star website, he said: “We are going to make a few signings during the transfer window.
“We will sign a right-back and a centre-back, both will be foreign also we will invest in a young forward.
“We are not interested in Petr Cech but we are working together with Chelsea to sign a player.
“We have not held talks yet however, Chelsea have recently made an agreement with Besiktas.
“If Cech does become available Be?ikta? would become a potential destination for Besiktas and I would support such a move.”
