5 Facts on West Ham's Potential New Pair of Wingers

​As far as the media speculation goes, West Ham have been trying to sign more players than they have in their entire squad this summer, but that same speculation seems to have remained and intensified about two players who are apparently close to signing: Gökhan Töre and Sofiane Feghouli.


With that in mind, here are five facts about the rumoured arrivals.

5. Töre's Chelsea Roots

​Slaven Bilic has wanted to bring Gökhan Töre to East London for a while now, but if he is successful, it won't be the winger's first venture into English football.


The Besiktas man was a member of Chelsea's youth side between 2009-2011 before signing his first professional contract with Hamburger SV.

4. Feghouli's Speed

If you've heard of Sofiane Feghouli, there's a good chance you're a fan of the popular football simulator game, FIFA. If so, you should be well aware of arguably his defining trait; his lightening fast pace.


West Ham have only recently utilised someone with immense pace down the wing in Michail Antonio, so perhaps Slaven Bilic has a need for speed.


With someone like Andy Carroll in the box, Feghouli has the potential to be a real threat and contributor to goals.

3. Töre's Role Models

​Gökhan Töre might not play in the same role as his two footballing idols - Sergio Agüero and Lionel Messi - but if he can replicate their form and study them enough, West Ham could be in for a real treat.


Töre is only 24-years-old, so he certainly has the time to reach his immense potential, and if so, he may get close to rivaling those two sensations. 

2. Algerian Veteren

​In their current side, Sofiane Feghouli is Algeria's third most capped player, having pulled on a green shirt 40 times.


The Valencia man was named Algerian Player of the Year in 2012 and was La Liga's Best African Player in the 2014/15 season.


West Ham have been unlucky with their players and England selection over the years, but Feghouli will almost certainly be another international to add to their ranks.

1. Both Good Enough to Start

Despite having the likes of Dimitri Payet, Manuel Lanzini and Michail Antonio, West Ham's potential new boys could easily be in the Hammers' starting eleven.


Slaven Bilic has stated that he intends to play Antonio as a right-back, leaving room for both Töre and Feghouli, with Lanzini capable of dropping deeper into the centre and Payet most effective as a number ten with room to roam.


Despite one of these men being a free agent (Feghouli), both would be brilliant signings and could be part of something major next season at West Ham United.​
