Slaven Bilic is eyeing a reunion with winger Gokhan Tore to leave West Ham outcast Michail Antonio fighting for his future.
The Hammers’ boss is a big fan of the 23-year-old Besiktas attacker, who was on Chelsea’s books as a teenager, and could raid his previous employers for the Turk in January.
That could push forgotten man Antonio further towards the Upton Park exit, just months after arriving.

The £7million deadline day signing was an ever-present at the City Ground for Nottingham Forest last season but has made just one sub appearance so far for West Ham in the league.
The lack of appearances for the Hammers this season may see Derby renew their interest in the winger.
The Rams were interested in signing Antonio in the summer, but arch-rivals Forest were reluctant to do business.
