Besiktas representatives are set for talks today with Chelsea midfielder Claude Makelele in London.

The Turkish outfit will table a two-year deal to the Frenchman worth £2.5 million-a-season and hope to convince Chelsea to grant him a free transfer.

Along with Besiktas, Makelele has held talks with Villarreal, Olympiakos and the USA's Houston Dynamos about next season.
