West Ham United close in on Gokhan Tore signing

West Ham United are reportedly on the verge of signing former Chelsea player Gokhan Tore from Besiktas on a loan deal with an option to buy.

West Ham United are on the verge of completing a deal to sign Gokhan Tore from Besiktas, according to reports.

The Hammers are thought to have a long-standing interest in the 24-year-old, who played under manager Slaven Bilic at the Turkish outfit.

Numerous reports are now claiming that the pair will be reunited in the coming days, with West Ham on the brink of sealing a €3m (£2.6m) loan deal with the option to buy him for €13m (£11.1m).

Tore, who scored 12 goals in 82 games for Besiktas, spent two years with Chelsea from 2009 to 2011 without managing to break into the first team at Stamford Bridge.

He would become West Ham's third signing of the summer after Havard Nordtveit and Sofiane Feghouli.
