£43m for Calnahoglu ?

low raterSo, yet another week goes by and we are still none the wiser about who we are actually signing.

The Ward-Prowse chase has now been taken up a notch with news that an improved bid is about to be tabled, we seem to have cooled off on our pursuit of Harry Maguire. Although his counterpart Scott McTomminey is still on the radar.

The Rennes defender, Adrien Truffert is also being touted as possible signing as well as a Portakabin in Rush Green.

But the latest piece of transfer gossip is the news that West Ham have ‘seriously targeted’ Inter Milan’sin a £43million bid in the hope of landing the Turkey skipper.

Calhanoglu has won four trophies at Inter Milan, for whom he has made 95 appearances.

He has also made over 100 appearances for AC Milan and Bayer Leverkusen, as well as winning 78 Turkey caps.

A shy and retiring man , he was recently quoted as saying that  he was one of the best midfielders in Europe.
