Caleta-Car also attracted West Ham last summer, but he rejected the chance to sign at the London Stadium when manager David Moyes was on a centre-back hunt (The Guardian).
Now, reports have resurfaced of the Irons potentially eyeing a move for the Croatian who is currently at Euro 2020.
The 24-year-old was a mainstay for Marseille and started 32 Ligue 1 matches – making an impressive 3.9 clearances per 90 and completing 86% of his passes out from the back (WhoScored).
West Ham are said to be on the hunt for a central defender again this summer, with Claret & Hugh believing that is one of Moyes’ three transfer priorities along with a striker and permanent deal for Jesse Lingard.
