West Ham agree £13m transfer package with Euro champs, ‘medical soon’

According to Turkish journalist Memz Dogi, West Ham are set to sign Besiktas winger Gokhan Tore in a transfer worth a potential £13million.

The Turkish international was one of Slaven Bilic’s key acquisitions during his spell at the Vodafone Arena, signing him initially on loan in summer 2013.

The now-Hammers boss signed Tore permanently a year later and it appears he’s looking to broker almost a carbon copy of that deal for the East London club.

Indeed, Turkish football insider Memz Dogi claims West Ham have agreed an initial loan deal with Besiktas, who lifted last season’s Super Lig title, worth £2.6million.

However, they’ve also agreed a future fee of £10.3million, which would take the total value of the move to just shy of £13million.

Dogi wrote on Twitter; “Tore to West Ham €3m loan deal for 1 season. West Ham have option to buy for €12m at the end of the season. Medical soon.”

The 24-year-old bagged six goals and nine assists in 34 appearances across all competitions last season, including seven set-ups in the Super Lig.
