West Ham boss confirms pursuit of Besiktas pair Tore, Hutchinson

West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has confirmed he is after a pair of his former players.

The Hammers have been linked with Besiktas duo Gokhan Tore and Atiba Hutchinson in recent times and the speculation has now been revealed as truth by the head coach of the East London club.

"Yes I want Gokhan Tore and Atiba Hutchinson, they are targets," Bilic said.

"We also have others but they are the major targets. Will it happen? Nobody can say yet.

"I want one transfer [deal] for both. More than one thing has to happen for this deal.

"When a club wants a player it depends on how much [Besiktas] want to sell a player and how much they are asking."

Bilic coached Turkish winger Tore and Canadian international Hutchinson during his two-year spell as Besiktas boss.
