Tore hitch update

RR Very HighClaretandHugh understands that talks to conclude a deal which would bring Gokhan Tore to West Ham are continuing but there are big obstacles regarding a loan fee.

We revealed  last night that despite widespread reports that a permanent deal could be concluded this week, the Hammers are in fact trying to come to a loan arrangement with 24 year old Tore and his club Beskitas.

But although the player is desperat to make the move into the Premier League we have now been told by our top insider that the size of the loan fee wanted by the Turkish outfit is “huge.”

Our insider said: “It is huge but talks will continue.”

Tore is a big favourite of manager Slaven Bilic and he would love to bring him to the Olympic Stadium.

Both manager and the player have regularly declared they would love to be united and we were told the board will continue to work hard to make that happen.

  1. i dont get this if bilic want this guy so mush we should just buy him he has not been wrong with any of the players he has signed so far

  2. Seems tome that Besiktas are just messing us about.As I read it,first off a deal was sorted at 13m euros then Besiktas decided they wanted 17m euros,then a loan deal was suggested and rejected,then transfer fee was again arranged at 13m and now we’re back to loan agreements which again are too high..All this time Tore has said he wants to play for West Ham,so don’t Besiktas realise how badly he wants away from there?

  3. I assume its a loan deal not because Bilic / Tore are unsure but we need more cash than originally budgeted to get a top striker. I assume the loan deal will become permanent next year when we have the cash?

  4. After all this brexit going on will he qualify to sign next season if we leave the EU straight away? If not get him in now & no worries.

  5. If it goes well like the Lanzini deal GREAT,
    If it ends up he is another Emineke or Moses GREAT
    maybe the 2 Dav s have found a formula that fits there business method,and you can’t knock that as long as the player goes along with it,
    We just need a deal that can’t be broken,
    Would we have returned AC ? Valencia ?
    We dodged a bullet with Song and Jenkinson
    I will wait and see as long as we don’t loose him
