It will take “an astronomical fee” for West Ham to secure a fullback target according to club president.

In today’s market, it’s rather hard to know what the average price for a player is. So many mediocre players go for ridiculous fees while some quality players go for far too little. However, in a world where PSR and FFP are constantly a topic of discussion, clubs are more desperate than ever to find bargains.

Unfortunately, this is becoming harder to do as clubs from leagues with less money than the Premier League are no longer selling their best players for less than they’re worth.

One star from a smaller league that West Ham have had their eyes on is Ferdi Kadioglu, Sports Witness reports. The Turkish fullback has two years left on his current contract and, as a result, Fenerbahçe’s president has said it will take an “astronomical fee” to secure his signature. Apparently, although it’s not been officially revealed, it would take a bid in the €30 million range to convince them to sell.

Unfortunately for the Hammers, at least 8 other clubs have reportedly made the Turkish side aware of their interest.

While they do need to bring in cover for Vladimir Coufal and someone who is potentially an upgrade on him, it’s far from the biggest priority and it seems unlikely that the Irons would be willing to spend such a large portion of their budget on a right-back.
