Updated: June 17, 2015


Demba Ba, who has scored 27 goals in 44 games during his first season at Beşiktaş, clearly attracted the interest of many different clubs from different leagues. According to the rumours there are offers for the Senegalese striker from Qatar, England and China.

The Beşiktaş board has given approval to the managers for the transfer of Demba Ba and Gökhan Töre. Al Ahli offered Beşiktaş € 14 million for Ba but he rejected them. Despite the wage Al Ahli offered him, Ba is not willing to play in Qatar or Dubai and there are no matching offers to Beşiktaş for Ba from Europe. The offers are not only for him, also Atletico Madrid has interest for Gökhan Töre. There are some speculations that there are also interest for him from Italy and England.


Demba Ba, who has scored 18 goals in the Super Lig this season, has attracted interest from England, as well as Qatar and China.

According to the English media, WBA and West Ham United want to get Ba on their team. The news stated that Ba wants to leave Beşiktaş as there are some financial struggles. Also former Beşiktaş coach Slaven Bilic wants Ba at West Ham.


Ba has some serious offers from China and Dubai but Ba doesn’t want to play in China due to the life in China. But it is still an ambiguity to what Ba will say about playing in Qatar.
