The Turkish winger is set to be the latest Hammers recruit.
Slaven Bilic is believed to be a big fan of the pacey winger and was undeterred by that knockback, with Futbolarena’s report claiming a 13 million Euro figure has been agreed and that the deal is expected to go through next week.

Tore arrived at Besiktas on a season-long loan deal from Rubin Kazan in 2013 and made the move permanent the following year.
He has racked up 82 appearances for the Turkish club, bagging 12 goals in the process and earning 26 caps for the Turkish national team.
Tore represents a slightly less glamourous but more realistic target and would provide welcome strength in depth in wide areas for a West Ham side that look intent on establishing themselves as a major force in the Premier League.
