£3m more to complete transfer for exciting winger
West Ham will need to find an additional £3 million to secure the signing of winger Ibrahim Osman, as Tim Steidten is hurriedly makes efforts to finalise the deal for Mohammed Kudus’s compatriot.
The club comfortably operates within the FFP limits and possesses an overdraft that can be utilised at any time.
Initial reports indicated that West Ham proposed a £15 million deal, inclusive of bonuses, in the hopes of convincing the Danish club. However, this offer fell short, and other English clubs have now entered the race for the 19-year-old winger. As a result, Nordsjælland is demanding £18 million plus bonuses, along with a percentage of any future profits from the Ghanaian player’s sale.
Osman joined Nordsjælland in January 2023 from the Ghanaian side Right to Dream Academy. While the Danish club had no intentions of selling him initially, meeting their demands could result in cashing in on his transfer this month.
With Steidten eager to secure the attacker, it remains to be seen whether West Ham will present an improved offer. But with the likes of Brentford and Brighton sniffing around, we should act quickly.
