West Ham given hope over Turkish delight

West Ham could be about to step up attempts to land Turkish star Burak Yilmaz after Galatasaray revealed he could be sold at the right price, according to talkSPORT.

Irons chief Slaven Bilic is reportedly a huge fan of the 30-year old, having viewed him at close quarters during his time in charge of Turkish outfit Besiktas.

The Turkish international has netted an impressive 61 times in 99 league games for the Istanbul giants, having arrived there in 2012.

Serie A giants Lazio are also credited with an interest, and the door could be open to negotiations surrounding a transfer.

Gala sporting director Cenk Ergun stated, ‘Yilmaz is a great striker, and we received a lot of offers for him,’

‘If a new proposal arrives we can sit down and talk about it.’

Despite West Ham’s early season success, the club are somewhat light in the attacking department. Dimitri Payet was recently ruled out for around three months, and both Enner Valencia and Andy Carroll have had their injury issues.
