Cremonese's relationship with star striker David Okereke appears strained as he was absent during their Italian Cup victory over Crotone, hinting at his desire to pursue opportunities in higher leagues.
Despite scoring seven goals in the previous Serie A season, Okereke couldn't prevent Cremonese's relegation.
Reports suggest Turkish club Besiktas is interested, but Cremonese hasn't received suitable offers.
Okereke's absence in the cup match due to a stomach ache has intensified speculation about his future, while coach Davide Ballardini hinted at internal challenges within the team.
Okereke joined Cremonese in 2022 from Club Brugge for €10 million.
