West Ham have been put on alert after Besiktas vice-president Ahmet Nur Cebi revealed he would be willing to sell Gokhan Tore for ‘the right price’.
The Hammers have been tracking the winger’s progress since Slaven Bilic took over last summer with a view to landing him during the upcoming transfer window.
And they will be encouraged by Nur Cebi’s latest comments, claiming he will be willing to negotiate with a club who tabled an appropriate offer.
“If they give €30m we would have to think about it, we have to think about business as well,” he said.
Tore spent two years at Chelsea as a youth player but failed to make the grade at Stamford Bridge and moved on to Hamburg.
Since then he has completed a short spell at Rubin Kazan before joining Besiktas on a permanent deal in 2014.
Tore made a positive impression under Bilic in the one season they worked together and the Croat now wants to bring the Turk to east London.
