Premier League side West Ham United are involved in a head to head battle with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid for the services of Turkish international Gokhan Tore.
West Ham United certainly stand a great chance of earning a place in the top four this season but in order to do so, one suspects that the Hammers will have to strengthen their squad during the January transfer window.
As of now, West Ham have only secured the services of Sam Byram this month but there are a host of other attacking players set to arrive at the Boleyn Ground during the final week of the transfer window.
Emmanuel Emenike is said to be on the verge of joining West Ham and now according to reports, the Hammers have their sights set on signing Besiktas star Gokhan Tore as well.
West Ham manager Slaven Bilic is well aware of Tore’s abilities having worked together with the midfielder at Besiktas and a reunion taking place at London has been seen as a real possibility.
However, West Ham are set to face a battle in their hopes of signing Tore as even Spanish giants Atletico Madrid are said to have expressed their interest in the €15million-rated star.
