VIDEO: Who are yer? Gokhan Tore!

We’ve heard his name 100 times or more and he’s been rumoured to be joing us ever since Slaven Bilic mentioned that he was a great admirer.

Now, today it’s finally been anounced officially – some time behind most of us – that Beskitas winger Gokhan Tore has signed for the Irons on lon with a view to a permanent £10 million deal.

His reputation has preceded him as a high quality player but the truth is that none of us know a great deal about the bloke and thus relax into the ‘Trust Slav’ defeault position.

So our pal Gonzo over at Hammers Chat has taken a keen look at the guy and  in this new WHO ARE YER? series fills you in on his background and what we can expect.

Look out for this special feature whenever the Irons dive into the transfer market.

So “WHO ARE YER GOKHAN TORE?”… find out by watching this great vid.

  1. Antonio to shine !!!
    Do not know to much about tore , we will see , left pegger , plays on the right ?
    Will need to go some to put the bard on the bench , I feel it in me water that Antonio will be on a mission this year pushing for a england spot ! IMO he is a settled and happy man .
    I hope Bilic finds a right back a.s. a .p as he is wasted in that position , we need him attacking box to box , what he does best !! I’m a bit pi£sed we haven’t got a full back yet , its a position we are short in but all we have done is buy m/f players ? We need a c/h as well ,
    Forget the young ones , they are only bit part at the moment ! Pull you’re finger out west ham . before it turns into a farce.
    Welcome aboard gok , a year to convince us .

  2. IMO, West Ham are signing Tore on a one year loan……which means a 12 month trial period. Much like the terms that Eminike had for 6 months. I’ll bet it doesn’t become permanent.

    • Lanzini proved his worth on loan and we snapped him up. I think it’s a good use of the system to see if players from overseas can hack the PL. imagine if we’d bought emineke outright? no thanks, much easier just to say time’s up – go home to your own club.

  3. Seems as if he is a thumbs down from the Wetlands YouTube scouts.What are you thinking Slaven lol

  4. Good bit of buisness for a year , with the option . The amount of money that’s involved now it makes sense ! If Slav rates him then its his decision , by all accounts he is a very good player . He is a first choice for the Turkish side , when not banned ? Any way the deal isn’t done yet , only another week to go ? Lol.
    Tore , fengerola and Antonio, two are bench warmers, IMO Antonio must start.
