West Ham United have thrown their hat into the ring for Girona captain Aleix Garcia, sparking a transfer tug-of-war with German giants Bayer Leverkusen, according to Spanish media outlet Cadena Ser.

Journalist Nil Sola reports that the Hammers have tabled a substantial bid for the 26-year-old midfielder, exceeding the €16 million offer already submitted by Leverkusen.

While West Ham can’t offer the allure of Champions League football next season, Sola suggests the club’s “very attractive” personal terms package could swing the deal in their favour.

The decision now rests with Girona. They could choose to accept the higher bid, or allow Garcia to make his own choice between the financial incentives of the Premier League with West Ham and the chance to compete in Europe’s elite competition with Leverkusen.

The report mentions West Ham’s new manager, Julen Lopetegui, hinting that Garcia might be a specific request from the former Spain boss to bolster his midfield.

With West Ham flexing their financial muscle, an intriguing transfer battle is brewing between the Premier League club and Leverkusen. Garcia’s decision and Girona’s acceptance of a bid will determine the destination of the talented midfielder.
