Everton signed Alli for free but must pay £10m if he makes 20 appearances. Team and individual successes determine further add-ons.
Besiktas, who finished sixth in the previous season, are tied with Fenerbahce after three matches.
Besiktas fans greeted Alli raucously when he arrived at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport to sign.
Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Gedson Fernandes, who he played with at Spurs, will also join him.
Ismael's team includes Arthur Masuaku, Romain Saiss, Wout Weghorst, and Cenk Tosun.
Everton is seeking reinforcements before the transfer market closes. Southampton rejected their interest in Che Adams.
