Southampton are being reported as having joined the Irons in the race to sign Gokhan Tore.
Turkish newspaper Sabah is making the claim and say Saints are preparing a £7 million bid for the explosive winger.
West Ham have been locked in talks with Besiktas over a loan deal which insiders have told us “currently involve a loan fee of millions” and are still negotiating.
Sabah confirms that saying the deal the Hammers want would include a buyout clause option similiar to that which saw us land Manu Lanzini.
However, Besiktas would prefer a transfer fee on a permanent deal if Tore is to leave the club although the winger is desperate to team up with his former manager and friend Slaven Bilic and that’s where the Irons hold a trump card.
This is stressing me out. Can we just use our budget, sign Batman, Tore as a permanent deal, and then use the remainder on a right back of need be. With that we can easily make do and challenge the top teams. Worried we’re gonna try too hard to get players on the cheap and end up missing all the quality players. If we want proven quality, we’re gonna have to pay for it
this Tore deal is dragging on & on either sign him permenant or move on as dont think we would let Payet go out on loan so either pay up or shut up
Next week either on loan for 1 year then we buy or buy him now,
He does not want to go any where but with Slav,
