Turkish giants Galatasaray have set their sights on West Ham United defender Vladimir Coufal, according to ASPOR. This potential transfer throws a spotlight on the 31-year-old Czech’s future with the Hammers.

Coufal’s current contract with West Ham expires in just one year, making him a target for clubs looking to capitalise on his expiring deal. Galatasaray, who are releasing their current right-back Serge Aurier, see Coufal as a potential replacement.

Since arriving in 2020, Coufal has established himself as a dependable figure for the Hammers. He has amassed over 150 appearances across all competitions, often favoured at right-back under former manager David Moyes.

New manager Julen Lopetegui has prioritised defensive reinforcements, potentially including full-backs. While Coufal’s experience could be valuable, his age might prompt the club to consider a sale.

West Ham face a difficult choice. Ben Johnson, the other right-back option, is expected to leave for a £60k per week contract with Ipswich Town. Letting Coufal go would leave a significant void in the position.

Selling Coufal could provide West Ham with funds to reinvest in the squad, especially as offering him a long-term contract renewal seems unlikely.

    Coufal has played well for WHU. It would be better
    to keep him one more year.

    I disagree. He was struggling during the most of last seasons matches and continually stood off the attacker allowing them plenty of space. Its time for him to move on and be replaced by a younger, fast and tough tackling full back putting pressure on the opponents!!
