Alaves’ Guillermo Maripan has been linked with a move to West Ham United since March.
On June 19th, we covered claims from Mundo Deportivo, who explained the Hammers had been ‘courting’ the defender for several weeks and had made an offer to secure his services.
Marca then explained the Premier League club submitted a proposal of €11.6m for the Chile international, which was not sufficient as he has a release clause of €25m.
Mundo Deportivo has provided a short update about the 25-year-old on Saturday.
It’s claimed the pre-season friendlies will give Alaves manager Asier Garitano an idea as to who will be included in his plans for next season and those who can leave the club in the summer transfer window.
Maripan is included in the list of the players whose future at Alaves remains uncertain and while talking about a potential transfer to West Ham, Mundo explains it ‘seems to have stalled’.
There’s every chance West Ham simply don’t think €25m represents a good deal.
