West Ham United are thought to be interested in bolstering their midfield ranks in the January transfer window.
The Hammers have already added Samir Nasri to their ranks this winter as the Hammers have seen a number of their players be hit with spells on the sidelines.
However, it appears the addition of the former France international is not enough for Manuel Pellegrini, as the London Stadium outfit remain in talks with another experienced midfielder.
The former Cardiff City man, who has been capped 114 times by Chile, is thought to be one of a number of players who could leave the Turkish giants in the winter.
It is claimed that the Hammers are trying to thrash out a deal for the 31-year-old for a fee reported to be around £6.5million.
West Ham have been unfortunate with the number of injuries that they have suffered in the middle of the park this season, however, Medel could be a great addition in the winter.
The Chilean is hugely experienced and could prove to be a valuable player for the team as he would likely sit in front of the defence and look to break up the play.
A fee of £6.5m could be argued to be slightly high for a 31-year-old, however, if things were to work out as well as they could, he may be considered a bargain coup in the future.
