Besiktas president Fikret Oman admits Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel is on their January shopping list.

The Turkish club tried to sign the Nigeria international last summer, but coach Senol Gunes had second thoughts.

Oman said: “If Gunes had given the go-ahead we were going to sign Mikel (last summer), and we could enter the race again over the winter break.”

Obi Mikel remains on the outer at Chelsea this season, despite Nemanja Matic’s scratchy form.
