West Ham United: Fans react following news they tried to sign Zeki Celik

West Ham United: Fans react following news they tried to sign Zeki Celik - West Ham Transfer Rumours

New West Ham United signing Vladimir Coufal performed very well in his Premier League debut against Leicester City. However it looks like he wasn’t the first choice signing for the Irons and a lot of the fan base have reacted to this news on Twitter. 

@Lequipe has reported, via @whufc_news, that West Ham tried to sign Turkish right-back Zeki Celik and offered €12 million but Lille wanted €15 million. This price was too much for the Hammers so they signed Coufal instead.

Are you happy that West Ham signed Coufal over Celik?

Yes

Yes

It is safe to say that the majority of the East London fan base are happy with Coufal so far. However, some are complaining that the board would not pay €3 (£2.7) million more for their number one target, so it is lucky that this news broke after a good Coufal performance.

23 year-old Celik is already playing in a big division in France so clearly he has some quality and potential, but the fact that Coufal only cost £5.4 million made it easy for the board to decide who to sign.

Hopefully the risk pays off but if it doesn’t then there is no doubt many Hammers supporters will use this latest news to add more fuel to the GSB OUT fire.

Here is what West Ham fans have said about Celik and Coufal following the news:
