According to La Provence journalist Fabrice Lamperti, speaking to Tutto Napoli, Olympique Marseille will ‘listen to all offers’ for the £20.7 million-rated (Transfermarkt) centre-back – whom West Ham had a bid rejected for in the summer transfer window – this month.
Lamperti states that Marseille’s willingness to sell Caleta-Car is due to their ‘many financial problems’, which reports have claimed could open the door for the Hammers to return with a new bid for the Croatia international in the current market.
And, the potential of West Ham restarting their pursuit of the defender is something that appears to have delighted many of the club’s fan base, as, after West Ham News relayed the report on Twitter, a great number of Hammers fans flocked to have their say on the matter, with many sharing their excitement at the prospect of their club landing the 24-year-old.
