Aston Villa impressed by ex Chelsea wonder-kid following Istanbul derby

West Ham v Chelsea

Beşiktaş winger Gökhan Töre played a staring role in his sides 3-2 victory over Fenerbahçe in the Istanbul derby last week.

The former Chelsea youngster provided Mario Gomez with the assist for the third and final goal.

Aston Villa scouts were present at the game and were particularly impressed with the explosive wingers performance according to the Milliyet.

The report claims that Villa scouts also kept tabs on fellow Beşiktaş star Oğuzhan Özyakup.

Töre now has the highest number of assists in the Turkish Super League (5) and has also found the back of the net once this season.

The Turkish international joined the Chelsea academy as a youth and was a star of the FA Youth Cup winning side of 2010.

The 23-year-old winger parted ways with the Blues in 2011 to join HSV along with former Chelsea head of youth development Frank Arnesen before a brief stint at Rubin Kazan and then joined Beşiktaş.
