West Ham had a bid for Tore rejected last month according to SkySports. The 24-year-old has been a long-term target for West Ham manager Slaven Bilic who worked with him at Besiktas.
Tore established himself as one of the most highly sought after players in the Turkish league under the stewardship of Bilic who managed Besiktas for two seasons before taking over at West Ham last summer.
Tore provided nine assists and scored six goals in 35 appearances for Besiktas in all competitions last season.
