Slaven Bilic has confirmed that Tore is on his transfer wishlist this summer, as he looks to bolster the Hammers’ attacking options.
West Ham are believed to be closing on a deal to sign the Besiktas winger, and Tore wants the move to go through.
“I have a contract until 2019 with Beşiktaş. But I completed my mission here. If you get my fee, I want to play at West Ham,” he said.
West Ham are expected to be extremely active in the summer transfer window, with Bilic set to have plenty of funds to spend.
The Croatian boss is determined to enhance his squad to ensure that they push on during their first season at the Olympic Stadium.
Bilic has worked with Tore before during their time together at Besiktas, and clearly feels that the Turkish international would be an upgrade on his current options.
If Tore does move to West Ham, he will become the London club’s third signing of the summer, following the additions of Sofiane Feghouli and Havard Nordtveit.
