With the summer transfer window just days away from opening, West Ham fans will be on the edge of their seat as to what Manuel Pellegrini decides to do.
The Hammers are set for an important window, with many players likely to leave and even more joining the club in an attempt to take West Ham to a European finish in the Premier League table, and one of the more popular rumours this summer so far has been AC Milan playmaker Hakan Calhanoglu.
The Turkish international has been linked with a move to east London in the Turkish (Fanatik) media and given the fact the number 10 is likely to leave Milan this summer, there could be so truth behind the whisperings going on about a move to the Premier League, and recent performances show that West Ham could be getting a player of immense talent.
The 25-year-old was recently named Man of the Match in Milan’s 1-0 win over Fiorentina where Calhanoglu scored the winning goal to secure the Rossoneri the three points, and its performances like this that should have Manuel Lanzini worried.
Calhanoglu, who is valued at £19.8 million on Transfermarkt, has shown in the past he is capable of playing at a top level in Europe, and if West Ham are able to acquire the services of the playmaker then it will fill a large void in the team that has been damaged recently due to Lanzini’s poor form.
The Argentine fan favourite could find himself out of favour if Calhanoglu makes the move, but for West Ham supporters, it will be a small price to pay to see an incredible talent at the London Stadium.
West Ham fans, would Calhanoglu be a good signing? Let us know!
