West Ham United may miss out on signing the Turkish international winger Gokhan Tore according to a report in the Takvim.
The daily Turkish newspaper states that talks between Besiktas and West ham are ongoing however, the Hammers have been unable to agree upon a transfer fee for the 24-year-old.
West Ham reached an agreement with Tore last month a source close to the club told Turkish-football.com but had yet to agree a transfer fee with the Black Eagles.
The Hammers reportedly offered £12 million for Tore but the Istanbul giants are holding out for a higher price. CNN Turk claim that the Black Eagles wanted £17 million.
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic is a keen admirer of Tore and is credited with developing his talent during his two-year spell in charge of Besiktas.
“Everyone knows how much I like Tore he is an excellent player and I want him at West Ham,” Bilic told Fanatik.
Bilic also confirmed that he tried to bring in Tore last summer but the deal stalled following Besiktas’ reluctance to part ways with their star man.
Tore missed out on the Euro 2016 squad call-up for Turkey due to being suspended for the first two group games so his fitness levels will not be affected by the summer tournament.
