Bilic man linked with Hammers

olcayThe Hammers are showing interest in the Slaven Bilic-managed Besiktas left winger Olcay Sahan, according to an official of his current Turkish club.

Besiktas football administrator Erdal Torunogullari claims that West Ham are one of three clubs in the hunt for the 27-year-old wide player who started against Liverpool in the Europa League last week.

Sahan has been a star player for former Hammer Slaven Bilic and that has lead to further speculation that the Croatian coach is favourite spot to take over from Sam Allardyce when his contract runs out in June.

The Turkish international has scored six goals in 18 league appearances for Besiktas this season and been a regular in their European campaign, starting all 12 matches for Slaven Bilic’s team.

But West Ham will face competition from Sevilla and Fiorentina for the ex-Bayer Leverkusen winger who joined Besiktas for £6.5million in 2012.

  1. Let’s hope he wants to follow his manager to our club,but still don’t know why we would want a winger if we are playing a diamond and using wing backs we need cover for Downing as a playmaker,we already have Alfitano and Jarvis.
