BESIKTAS president Ahmet Nur Cebi has opened the door to a shock return for Dele Alli.
The former Tottenham and England star, 27, has endured a nightmare season on loan with the Turkish giants where he registered three goals in 17 games.
Alli has returned to parent club Everton and undergone surgery on a hip injury that has ruled him out for the remainder of the campaign.
His injury brought to a close a torrid short spell with Besiktas, but now Cebi has talked up the possibility of him signing a permanent deal with the club.
That is despite the forward hitting headlines for the wrong reasons after he was pictured with a balloon in his mouth surrounded by gas canisters.
The Mail are reporting that Besiktas president Cebi is considering a move for Alli if he "leaves Everton for free" at the end of the season.

The ex-Spurs man still has 12 months left on his Toffees contract, but it remains to be seen whether the Premier League club want to keep him.
And Everton manager Sean Dyche remained coy on Alli when asked about him in the wake of the balloon picture emerging on social media.
He said: "You can only guide people with what you think is good for them.
"Eventually players have choices, so we recommend they make good choices.

"But behind that, he's factually injured. He's come back with a proper injury that's going to take some time to get sorted out, so he'll use that period wisely, I hope."
When asked about his future, Dyche added: "He is not here. He has an injury which will keep him out for some time.
"Some of the stuff reported – they know what they should and shouldn't be doing.
"As a manager you cannot control everything in their lives. Should we be following them all day? You can only guide them.
"He has an injury which will take a while to sort out – it will be a number of weeks."
Alli, who is dating model Cindy Kimberly, joined Everton on a free transfer from Spurs in January 2022 – although the Toffees could be made to pay as much as £40million if certain performance benchmarks are met.
The first £10m is due if he makes 20 appearances for the club.
To date, Alli has played 13 games and is yet to register a goal contribution.
