‘He’s Class’ ‘The Better Slabhead’ Fans React To Reports That West Ham Have Had 6.8M Bid Rejected For 24 Year Old

‘He’s Class’ ‘The Better Slabhead’ Fans React To Reports That West Ham Have Had 6.8M Bid Rejected For 24 Year Old

West Ham have had an €8m (£6.8m) bid rejected for Fenerbahce defender Attila Szalai, according to reports in the Turkish media.

The 24-year-old was mentioned as a Hammers target during the January transfer window, while he was heavily linked with a move to Chelsea at the end of last year.

It appears that David Moyes’ side have now finally made a move for Szalai, with many supporters on Twitter speculating on where he would fit into the starting eleven:



The Hungarian international can play as a left-back, although he is more comfortable as a centre-half. With that being the case, he would be a good fit if Moyes is considering moving to a three-man defence.

If we take into account that the Irons have also been looking at signing wingbacks, such as Eintracht Frankfurt’s Filip Kostic, this summer, it would suggest a permanent change in formation could be in the offing.

It is believed that West Ham may well make a second bid for Szalai, so we shall have to wait and see whether they do return to the negotiating table.
