Gökhan Töre hot on the transfer market

Updated: January 21, 2016

Beşiktaş and Turkey winger Gökhan Töre is hot on the transfer market right now, Slaven Bilic’s West Ham United already made a concrete € 10.000.000,00 offer two weeks ago and now Atlético Madrid hav renewed their interest in the 24 year old International.

Firat Günayer now reports that Atlético Madrid have approached the Black Eagles with a formal € 15.000.000,00 offer this week, however Beşiktaş president Fikret Orman has made it clear that he will not allow any of the important first team players leave this transfer window, “Not in January” he told the Spanish club as he had already told West Ham two weeks prior.

However due to the transfer ban hanging over the heads of Atlético Madrid there has been speculation of an interest transfer construction which Beşiktaş could potentially be open to, Atlético Madrid would buy Gökhan Töre now for € 15 million and loan him back, free of charge, to Beşiktaş for 6 months. That way Atléti would circumvent their two year transfer ban which will go in to effect next Summer.

It is possible that the Black Eagles will sell Gökhan Töre this January under these circumstances, but anything other than such a deal is not possible right now. Beşiktaş are bringing in Armenian International Aras Özbiliz from Spartak Moscow and will loan him to Rayo Vallecano for six months, he is meant to be the successor of Töre when he leaves this Summer, which at this point seems more clear than ever.

Beşiktaş paid € 4,5 million for Gökhan Töre last Summer after having already loaned him for a full season from Rubin Kazan. They are set to make a very nice profit on the young winger, one of the crowning examples of the current boards’ successful transfer politics.
