West Ha had a bid for Tore rejected last month according to SkySports. The 24-year-old will become the first player from Besiktas to join Slaven Bilic at the Hammers since he left the Black Eagles last summer.
Tore excelled at Besiktas under the stewardship of Bilic and has actually played longer under his command – two seasons – than any other current West Ham player. The former Chelsea player provided nine assists and scored six goals in 35 appearances for Besiktas in all competitions last season.
