According to the Turkish media, West Ham are preparing to make an offer for Besiktas midfielder Atiba Hutchinson.
Turkish newspaper Hurriyet claims Slaven Bilic is looking for a January reunion with Besiktas midfielder Hutchinson, having managed the player during his time with the Turkish club.
32 year old Hutchinson was purchased by Bilic back in 2013 from PSV Eindhoven.
The report claims West Ham have been scouting Hutchinson for the last four matches.
It is believed Besiktas want at least £5m for the experienced 32-year-old, but it is rumoured Bilic believes he could land his former player for much less.
We have to take all these early transfer rumours with a large pinch of salt, as we have said before the West Ham cupboard is bare after spending so much in the summer. We are also up to our limit on Financial Fair Play wage bill. That said, never says never! We know Sullivan loves a deal and they will usually find a way to scrap together one last deal in the transfer window if the right player at the right price becomes available.
