West Ham United are planning a renewed effort for Beşiktaş striker Cyle Larin in the summer, having seen their efforts for a January transfer rebuffed.
That’s according to Sabah, who say the Turkish club want €15m to let the Canadian go this summer.
West Ham’s efforts to sign a striker throughout January were well covered, with the club having set their sights on Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri.
They couldn’t get a deal for the Moroccan over the line, though, with the La Liga club rejecting their advances in favour of waiting until the summer, when they think they can get a better deal for him.
It seems he wasn’t the only forward the Hammers looked at, though, with Sabah reporting they also made a €10m offer to sign Larin.
They describe that bid, alongside one from West Bromwich Albion, as ‘important’ but one that was rejected by the club and the player, who wanted to wait until the season was over.
That ended West Ham’s hopes, but Sabah have learned that David Moyes’ side are ‘preparing to knock’ on Besiktas’ door again.
Should they do so, they will find the Super Lig side in accommodating mood, with Beşiktaş management setting a €15m price on the striker’s head.
That should be more than affordable for West Ham, particularly if they qualify for Europe this season, so this is one to definitely keep an eye on moving forwards.
