Big offers coming in for Gökhan Töre

Updated: June 27, 2015

Beşiktaş have received several big offers for Gökhan Töre over the past few days, a € 12 million bid from an unidentified English club and an € 11 million offer from Redbull Salzburg to me more precise.

However, Beşiktaş boss Şenol Güneş has made it clear that he plans on retaining Töre at the club for the upcoming season.

Gökhan Töre also stated recently that he does not want to leave the Black Eagles and that he would only be interested in a transfer if it would benefit both him and Beşiktaş.

Former head of football affairs Ahmet Nur Cebi stated only two weeks ago that Töre’s price would be € 12 million, that price has now been matched but the Black Eagles’s new manager, who has taken full control of football affairs after Cebi’s stepping down of the post, has made it clear that Töre is staying for atleast one more season.

Gökhan still has four years left on his contract after signing for Beşiktaş on a permanent deal this past summer from Rubin Kazan for a € 4,5 million fee after having already spent a season long loan in Istanbul the prior season.

Töre was the creative mastermind of the Black Eagles this past season but Şenol Güneş believes he can make the 23-year old left footed right winger even more important this coming season, which would only see his value increase on the transfer market. Gökhan Töre already showed Europe glimpses of what he is capable of in the Europa League this past season and it is possible that his performances against Tottenham and Liverpool have warranted the € 12 million offer from the unidentified Premier League club, however suitors for the talented and flamboyant winger will have to wait for atleast another season for their chances of signing Töre. Unless they’d put forward an absolutely insane offer which could not be refused.
