West Ham are considering a move for Fenerbahce defender Attila Szalai, according to journalist Florian Plettenberg.
West Ham’s first choice is still defender Thilo Kehrer, but talks with PSG are not going very well. The French club demands 20 million euros for the player, while the Hammers are ready to pay only 10-12 million.
The defender has been playing for Fenerbahce since the summer of 2021. His contract with the club runs until the summer of 2025. The player’s transfer fee is estimated at 12 million euros. Salai made 42 appearances last season, scoring a goal and making 2 assists.
At the end of 2019, he made his debut in official matches as part of the Hungarian national team. Since then he regularly received calls to its ranks, and in the summer of 2021 he was included in the national team’s squad for the final stage of UEFA Euro 2020.
