Exclusive: West Ham target Gokhan Tore available for sale, despite Hammers bid rejection

Posted by

Besiktas star midfielder Gokhan Tore could be on his way out of Istanbul despite the club turning down a bid from the Premier League.

Sky Sports recently reported that the Istanbul-based club had rejected a bid from West Ham and that the Hammers will continue their pursuit of the Turkish international.

A source close to the Besiktas told CaughtOffside’s Eren Sarigul that Tore is available for sale, but only at the right price. The Black Eagles are awaiting a bid in the region of £12 million if they are to let go of their star asset this summer.

Tore does have Premier League experience having risen through the ranks at Chelsea before his move to HSV and then Rubin Kazan before joining Besiktas.

The 24-year-old established himself as one of the most highly sought after players in the league under the stewardship of Slaven Bilic who coached Besiktas for two seasons before taking over at West Ham last summer.
