The Sunday People's Dave Kidd and Dean Jones report that Tottenham are having difficulty selling Emmanuel Adebayor.
Besiktas' generous offer has been deemed suitable on all levels except for Adebayor not appearing to be keen on leaving for Turkey.
Meanwhile, The Mirror's Matt Law suggests West Bromwich Albion are interested in signing Clint Dempsey, with Spurs possibly willing to sell the American.
The combined cost of Spurs' asking price and his wage demands could prove too expensive for the Baggies, though.

The Mirror's Simon Bird has followed up on yesterday's story in the Sunderland Echo (see below) with the suggestion that Tom Huddlestone "has been given permission to talk to Sunderland after a £5million fee was agreed."
This one looks like it might be moving closer to completion, but we have read that before this summer!
In an exclusive in the Sunderland Echo, Graeme Anderson reports that Sunderland "are closing in on the signing of £5million-rated Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone."
Last month, the same newspaper was the first to suggest interest from Black Cats boss Paolo Di Canio in Huddlestone.
Since then Spurs have signed Paulinho, further pushing Huddlestone down the midfield pecking order at White Hart Lane.
Scott Parker could also be moving out of North London, though not quite as far as his teammate as it is two London clubs who are pursuing him.
The Mirror's Darren Lewis reports that Queens Park Rangers are stepping up their interest in Parker, with owner Tony Fernandes eager to make the transfer happen.
Lewis also believes Parker's former club West Ham United are keen to bring him back to Upton park. Any potential return could only be on loan, however.
According to the Daily Mail's Simon Jones, Besiktas have agreed to match Emmanuel Adebayor's wages, ahead of a possible move to Turkey for the striker.
Adebayor is said to still be uncertain about leaving Spurs.
