Beşiktaş winger Gökhan Töre has the potential to become the next Arda Turan according to his agent Ahmet Bulut.
Bulut revealed that Töre has the talent to follow in the footsteps of the Barcelona star and that he could have taken his first step by moving to Atletico Madrid over the summer like Turan did from Galatasaray in 2012.
“Atletico Madrid made a bid over the summer but Beşiktaş wanted him to stay,” Bulut told the Star newspaper.
“Töre is hugely talented and could very well be the next Arda Turan but he has to move abroad to make that happen.
“He has to leave this summer and not waste his talent.”
Töre is one of the most highly rated Turkish international players on the market and his Premier League pedigree has resulted in interest from England.
West Ham reportedly made a £7.4 million bid for Töre in January according to the according to the Sun newspaper.
Bilic of course knows Tore well having coached him for over the past two seasons.
The Turkish international also has experience being at a Premier League club having risen through the ranks of Chelsea as a youth player.
Beşiktaş president Fikret Orman reportedly has offered to listen to any offers Bilic makes over the summer.
