According to a report in yesterdays Evening Standard, Spanish midfielder Aleix Garcia has revealed that he turned down West Ham United’s advances to join Bayer Leverkusen this summer.

The 27-year-old maestro was a key figure in Girona’s historic Champions League qualification last season, earning a spot in La Liga’s Team of the Season alongside established stars.

Garcia’s standout performances naturally attracted interest from numerous clubs, making him a sought-after target in the transfer window.

Bayer Leverkusen, under the leadership of legendary midfielder Xabi Alonso, secured Garcia’s signature for a reported bargain price of £15 million.
Garcia confirmed to Diari de Girona that West Ham made an offer, but he ultimately chose Leverkusen.

The allure of Champions League football and the chance to learn under a midfield icon like Alonso were decisive factors for Garcia. This development highlights the fierce competition for top talent.

Despite their offer, West Ham couldn’t compete with Leverkusen’s Champions League pedigree and the pull of Xabi Alonso.
