West Ham will have to double their offer for Mert Muldur if they want to get a deal done for the Turkish defender according to a report from Sassuolo News.

The Hammers have allegedly made an opening offer of £6 million for the full-back.

Sassuolo reportedly want £12 million for the 22-year-old, however (Sassuolo News).

It seems as though David Moyes is finally making some concrete moves in the transfer market.

The Scot has already brought some talented youngsters to the London Stadium.

West Ham are currently in talks to sign PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola according to Sky Sports.

And another potential new signing could be on the horizon.


West Ham must double opening Mert Muldur offer

Sassuolo News claims that the Hammers have lodged an opening £6 million bid for the Turk.

Sassuolo allegedly will not sell the full-back for less than £12 million, however.

The 22-year-old is a right-back by trade but he can also operate at left-back, as he proved at EURO 2020 with Turkey.

Muldur is a decent player. It seems strange that Moyes would be targeting the signing of a full-back, however, considering how much he needs to strengthen in other areas of the pitch first and foremost.

We just can’t see this one happening. Not least because Sassuolo want double what the West Ham owners are offering.
