Turkish right back available on free transfer

fenerbahce-den-gokhan-gonul-soku-43836Fenerbahce full-back Gokhan Gonul has received interest  from West Ham according to reports in Turkey.

His agent,  Ahmet Bulut was quoted in the Turkish media as saying: “Other than Besiktas there have been five offers which have come from England and Spain.”   A report in www.aksam.com.tr claims the Hammers reached an agreement-in-principle with the right-back whose contract with Fenerbahce expires in June.

The Hammers are reported to have offered a three-year deal worth €2.5 million per-season (£37,000 per week) and a €3 million sign-on fee (£2,3m) who would join on a free transfer.

31-year-old Gonul has over 50 caps for Turkey and has been a regular at Fenerbahce since joining the club from Hacettepe in 2007. According to another Turkish football website, Ajansspor, Gonul wants to join Istanbul rivals and Slaven Bilic’s former team Besiktas instead and is likely to turn down interest from West Ham.
