Many West Ham United fans have been left to buzz as a transfer update emerged on Duje Caleta-Car.
As per The Athletic (via West Ham Central), the Marseille central defender will be made available for a mere £17m in the summer window, but he is likely to be sold for even less in the shape of £13m.
Should West Ham sign Caleta-Car?
The Hammers had a £25m bid rejected for him in last summer’s window, as he wanted to play UEFA Champions League football, but this is no longer the case, and so they may revisit their past interest.
Caleta-Car would be a much welcomed addition to David Moyes’ squad, given that they are in the Europa League and he has a lot of experience playing in that competition.
On the pitch, the Croatia international had a great individual season in Ligue 1, winning no fewer than 3.7 of his duels a game while also averaging 3.9 clearances and 1.3 interceptions per match (Sofascore).
Nonetheless, at just 24, Caleta-Car is of a good age at the moment and will likely only get better, so snapping him up for as little as £13m could turn out to be an absolute steal.
West Ham fans on Caleta-Car transfer update
These Irons buzzed as the transfer update was shared on Twitter, with one member of the London Stadium faithful even going as far as to claim that the price was ‘amazing’:
“£13m is an amazing price. Would be interested to see what Milenkovic is valued at, but £13m too good to pass up”
“Need to be all over that ASAP before any one else is”
“Omg. No way, go for him!!!!!!”
“Please get it done West Ham”
“£13m-17m is a great bargain! Caleta-Car is another 6ft3+ CB who is composed on the ball, reads the game well, doesn’t lunge in, works hard, offers strength, a great passing range & an aerial presence that makes him valuable at defending & a threat when attacking!”
“Give them £15m and wrap it up RIGHT NOW”
