West Ham edging closer to £13.3m signing as first summer deal

Bilic KoemanWest Ham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are weighing up the decision to buy a new star-man, with a move edging closer to completing.

According to Tribal Football, reporting via CNN Turk, Gokhan Tore is edging closer to a move to the Premier League from Turkish giants Besiktas.

Slaven Bilic was formerly the manager at Besiktas and he is keen to bring the winger to east London after he initially signed him from Rubin Kazan for £3 million.

The Hammers initially went to Besiktas with the idea of a bid within the region of £12 million, but they shortly stopped in their tracks.

There’s been a lot of talk surrounding West Ham already heading into this window and they’ve been linked with some big names, including Alexandre Lacazette, and their board are concerned they could miss out on these targets and disappoint their fans.
