West Ham United

Forward linked with Hammers move

26th April 2019, 20:01 by Nick Harris

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini is in a fight with Leicester for AC Milan star Hakan Calhanoglu, according to Turkish reports.

The attacking midfielder has apparently caught they eye of both the Hammers and the Foxes although whether either would be willing to shell out the reported £27m needed to sign him remains to be seen.

The 25-year-old German-born international joined the Rossoneri from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2017 and has scored one goal in 31 league appearances this season to help Milan to fourth place in the table.

Hammers boss Pellegrini is expected to make wholesale changes to his squad over the summer and Milan are ready to allow Calhanoglu to move on if they get the right offer.
