REPORT: West Ham Are Still ‘Looking At’ Signing 31M Rated Ivorian Midfield Enforcer

West Ham are still “looking at” making a bid for PSV Eindhoven midfielder Ibrahim Sangare, according to Footmercato journalist Santi Aouna.

The Ivorian international has recently signed a contract extension until 2027 but Aouna claims that won’t deter the Hammers from going ahead with an offer:

Sangare’s new contract is still believed to have a €37m (£31m) release clause, but that can only be triggered at the end of the season, so West Ham will probably have to pay more than that to sign the 24-year-old now.

The likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Newcastle have all scouted Sangare, so he is very highly rated, but there would be question marks about paying a premium for a player who would have been available for a lot less even a week ago.

Losing out to Everton for Amadou Onana has complicated the club’s transfer plans, though, so a move for Sangare cannot be completely ruled out.
