Turkey international Gokhan Tore is on the verge of leaving Hamburg, Goal.com has learned.

The 20-year-old attacker was one of the three players who left Chelsea for Hamburg last summer, making 22 Bundesliga appearances as the German club narrowly avoided relegation.

It is understood that coach Thorsten Fink is unhappy with Tore's attitude and is considering letting the starlet leave, with Maximilian Beister and Son Heung-Min currently ahead of him in the club's pecking order.

Hamburg need to raise funds to reinforce their squad in the summer and in Tore have one of their best in-demand players. The German side have set an asking price of €5 million for the player, with Chelsea entitled to 50 per cent of any future transfer fee.

Galatasaray and Rubin Kazan are both understood to be monitoring Tore's situation, with a delegation from the Russian side having flown into Hamburg earlier in the week to engage in explorary talks.
