Hammers may make 11th hour bid for winger

West Ham may make an 11th hour bid for FC Nordsjaelland winger Ibrahim Osman.

The club described the bid last night as having got out of control with a former and current agent involved and the Danish club wanting more than the Hammers believed he was worth.

But we reported three of four days ago that should they receive an acceptable offer for Said Benrahma they would up the offer to meet the required terms.

Now, having been offered an initial £15 million for the Algeria international, technical director Tim Steidten may well be ready to go back in and sort out the mess which developed during the original negotiations.

It seems with the confusion over who was the player’s current representative, the Hammers wasted much time negotiating with the wrong person but with three days remaining of the current window there is time to get a deal done.

The Hammers are reported to have not agreed a deal for Benrahma but there can be little doubt given his recent form they won’t be ready to do so – well hopefully.

There has been some agitation inside the club over the signing of Osman with one insider describing it as a gamble.

And Claret and Hugh has learned this morning from a source that French outfit Rennes allegedly turned him down when he was offered to them for around €10 million recently!

However should Steidten be able to work his way through the problems encountered initially it remain more than possible the player could become an Iron.
