West Ham summer signing to make first Premier League start against Bournemouth

West Ham summer signing Gokhan Tore will make his first Premier League start of the season today against Bournemouth.

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic has included Tore in the starting line-up for the second consecutive game following his place in the line-up against Astra in the Europa League clash mid-week.

Tore took the corner which resulted in the East London based outfit wining a penalty in the 1-1 draw against the Romanian outfit.

The 24-year-old winger was one of Bilic’s main transfer targets over the summer and joined from Besiktas on a one-year loan for a £2.5 million fee without a £10 million buyout clause option.

Tore thrived under the stewardship of Bilic during his time in charge of Besiktas. Under two-years of Bilic’s management Tore established himself as one of the most highly sought after players in Turkish football and arrived at West Ham as the Super Lig champion.

The East London based outfit will be hoping to make amends for losing their first game of the season 2-1 against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge today when they take on Bournemouth.

The Hammers will however, be without record signing Andrew Ayew as well as star player Dimitri Payet.
