West Ham United have had their €25 million bid for Genoa’s dynamic midfielder, Morten Frendrup, turned down by the Italian club. The Danish midfielder, renowned for his tireless work rate, has been on the radar of several Premier League clubs recently. Frendrup’s stellar performances in Serie A last season have not gone unnoticed, missing just one league match due to suspension rather than injury.

The Hammers, under the guidance of manager Julen Lopetegui, identified Frendrup as a potential key addition to their squad. Despite their significant offer, Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri reports that Genoa remain firm in their stance. The club is not looking to offload Frendrup unless an exceptional bid comes their way.

Frendrup’s importance to Genoa cannot be overstated. Coach Alberto Gilardino has been vocal in his admiration for the 22-year-old’s contributions in midfield, highlighting his exceptional stamina. “He runs 12-13 km per game,” Gilardino noted in May. “He never gets tired and has room for significant improvement.”

As the transfer window progresses, it remains to be seen if West Ham will return with an improved offer to secure Frendrup’s services. The midfielder’s blend of energy and potential for growth makes him an attractive prospect for the Hammers, who are looking to strengthen their squad ahead of the new Premier League season.

Stay tuned for the latest updates on this developing story and more West Ham news as the transfer window unfolds. Will West Ham United be able to tempt Genoa with a higher bid for Frendrup, or will they have to look elsewhere to bolster their midfield? Only time will tell.
