The East London side appear dead set on bringing a new striker to the Boleyn Ground before the end of the January transfer window, and having been heavily linked with a move for Nigerian forward Emmanuel Emenike, now appear keen on moving for Gala hitman Yilmaz [Turkish Football].
According to the Mirror, the Claret and Blues have already made a bid to take the forward on loan as they look to bring in cover for injured hitmen Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho.
Yilmaz, who’s bagged 81 goals in 140 games could be a decent addition, although as Galatasaray want £7 million to sell the player outright [according to the Mirror], it appears as though a loan deal might be the best option.
However, this prospect has been laughed off by West Ham after Galatasaray revealed the price they’d want to send Yilmaz on loan.
The cheeky Super Lig devils only went and asked to take Dimitri Payet—West Ham’s best player!
If you don’t ask, you don’t get, we understand this, but come on Gala…do us a favour!
Payet, for the record, moved to East London from Olympique de Marseille during the summer and has already scored six goals and contributed four assists to date this season.
