Želimir Terkeš (born 8 January 1981 in Čapljina, Bosnia-Herzegovina) is a Bosnian football striker currently playing for Chongqing Lifan in the China League One. He previously played for NK Zagreb, HNK Čapljina, HŠK Zrinjski Mostar, NK Inter Zaprešić and NK Zadar.

Terkeš started his career in the youth ranks of his hometown club HNK Čapljina before moving the youth ranks of the Croatian club NK Zagreb. Unable to win a place in the first team, he returned to his home coutry, and after playing a year and a half for Zrinjski Mostar and featuring in the Bosnia & Herzegovina U21 team, he secured a transfer back to Prva HNL, signing for NK Inter Zaprešić. Unable to get into a scoring form, he moved in the summer of 2004 to NK Zadar, but was relegated at the end of the season. Impressing in the Druga HNL, he helped his club get back to the top flight after two seasons. The 2007/2008 season was his most impressive by far. He was the top scorer of the league in the end with 21 goals, three goals ahead of the Rijeka's Radomir Đalović and four ahead of the Hajduk Split player Nikola Kalinić, also accumulating 7 assists, having a run of ten goals and three assists in six games (rounds 24-29) as well. His games secured him interest from foreign clubs and got him a call up for the Bosnia and Herzegovina national football team, for which he made his debut on 1.6.2008 in the 1-0 friendly win against Azerbaijan. He remained in Zadar, however, but after having surgery, he struggled to regain his previous form. Somewhat plagued by injuries, he scored 14 goals in 66 games in the next two and a half seasons. In March 2011, he secured a transfer to the China League One side Chongqing Lifan and in his last match for NK Zadar before that, a 1-0 home win against NK Lokomotiva, he scored the winning goal.
