Slaven Bilic has revealed he is keeping tabs on several players at his former club Besiktas.

Bilic, speaking in the October edition of Socrates admitted that he was interested in bringing on or two of his former employees to London in the near future - including Turkish international winger Gokham Tore.

"Beşiktas is a huge club with a strong squad," he told the magazine. "Quite a few of the players are good enough to play for West Ham and I am interested in them.

"Gokhan is a legend; he is a top guy and a great player. Of course I would love to have him in the team [at West Ham]. I tried to sign him at the start of the season, but it was not the right time."

Another player Bilic is strongly interesting in bringing to the Boleyn Ground is midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup, who features alongside Tore in tyhe Turkish national team.

The 23-year-old, who was born in the Netherlands started life in the Premier League with Arsenal but failed to make a single appearance for the Gunners before moving to Turkey.

Signed by Besiktas for just 500,000 three years ago, Ozyakup made 32 appearances for his club last season, scoring three goals and providing eight assists.
