Gökhan Töre has been transfer listed by Hamburg

Hamburg have transfer listed Gökhan Töre and set an asking price of €5 million for their 20-year-old winger.

The Bundesliga outfit are in the midst of financial difficulties and hope to cash in on their highly sought-after young prospect.

Manager Thorsten Fink is also reported to be unhappy with the Töre's attitude.

Töre was regarded as one of Chelsea's brightest prospects when he was recruited to the youth academy in 2009 by Frank Arnesen, the Blues former head of talent scout.

The Turkish international winger became a regular in the youth team helping them win the 2010-2011 season making 16 starts and scoring four times.

Töre joined Hamburg last season after Frank Arnesen resigned from his position at Chelsea and took up the role of Sporting Director at Hamburg.

Arnesen's was intent on signing the young winger and paid €1.3 million to secure the deal with his former club.

The 20-year-old Turkish international missed a large part of last season through injury however, he still managed to finish the season as statistically, the most successful dribbler in Europe.

Töre has been linked with a move to Galatasaray, Rubin Kazan as well as a move back to the Premiership.

Chelsea football club would make 50 per-cent of any future transfer fees if Töre was to move from Hamburg to another club.
