West Ham boss remains coy over Turkish international winger transfer link

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic refused to comment on transfer rumours linking the Hammers with a move for Beşiktaş winger Gökhan Töre.

Bilic told Fanatik: “I have heard the rumours linking us with Gökhan Töre but I do not want to comment on that right now.”

Beşiktaş recently turned down a £7.4 million bid from the Hammers according to the Sun newspaper.


The Black Eagles reportedly also received an offer from Spanish giants Atletico Madrid over the summer which was also turned down.

The Turkish international winger has four goals and six assists in all competitions for the Black Eagles this season.

Bilic is credited with getting the career of Töre back on track after a number of off the field altercations and disciplinary issues on the field.

The 23-year-old also has his roots in the Premier League having first made a name for himself at the Chelsea youth academy.

The former Beşiktaş manager also revealed that he hopes the Black Eagles win the Turkish Super League title this season.

“I hope Beşiktaş win the league title this season,” he added.

Bilic went onto state that he hopes West Ham can continue to build upon their recent spell which has seen the Premier League outfit lose just one of their last 10 games.

“We have only lost one of our last 10 games and hopefully we can continue performing at the same level until the end of the season,” Bilic said.
