Atletico Madrid have taken a firm stance to fend off West Ham’s interest in forward Samu Omorodion, who is reportedly eager to join the Hammers.

According to Spanish publication Marca, Atletico have now decided not to sell Omorodion at any price, believing that the 20-year-old could be a key player for their future and are determined to keep him.

This strong public message from the Spanish club follows the player’s decision to part ways with his agent to push for a transfer. It’s a clear indication that the club will not be strong-armed into a sale by player power.

Omorodion, at 20, needs regular playing time to continue his development, and it remains to be seen whether Atletico Madrid can provide him with that opportunity.

Fabrizio Romano has revealed that the Spanish giants recently turned down a £34m offer from Premier League club West Ham United for the attacker. The Hammers are in need of attacking reinforcements, and it will be interesting to see if they decide to pursue other targets.

As for Atletico Madrid, it is evident that they rate Omorodion highly and won’t want to lose him on the cheap. They will need to persuade a clearly disgruntled player that his future remains in Spain and to sign a new contract.
