West Ham are ready to battle with the top six clubs for signings. After sealing a surprise move for former Fulham star, Ryan Federicks, the Hammers are prepared to do battle in the transfer market again.
Reports from Sun Sport claims that Manuel Pellegrini’s side have launched a late bid for Nice midfielder, Jean Michel Seri with a £35 million offer.
The Ivorian has made it clear that he would be playing outside of France next season, and his £35 million release clause has caused a transfer war among some of Europe’s top sides.
Reports yesterday claimed that Chelsea have entered advanced talks with the midfielder’s representatives over a move to London, but they now have to battle with West Ham.
Manuel Pellegrini has been tasked to help the Hammers break inside the top seven and he has been promised significant funds to buy new quality players.
Seri has interest from Napoli and Borussia Dortmund also, but he has his heart set on moving to the Premier League. Chelsea are not the only other Premier League team looking to sign him, Mauricio Pochettino is also monitoring his situation as he looks for a replacement should Mousa Dembele finally leave White Hart Lane.
