West Ham in talks with Besiktas midfielder offers says agent

Besiktas v Olympiakos

West Ham have made an offer for Besiktas midfielder Atiba Hutchinson and are in talks according to his agent Niclas Jensen.

Jensen was quoted by Sporx as saying: “Talks are going well but we still need time, West Ham are not however, alone there are other clubs that want Atiba.”

The Canadian international is no stranger to Slaven Bilic and played under this stewardship for the two seasons he was at the club before joining West Ham last summer.

The Hammers are already reported to have reached an agreement with Besiktas over Gokhan Tore and are also interested in Oguzhan Ozyakup.

Bilic has been keeping close tabs on his former players especially Tore and Hutchinson who he had a close relationship with.

Hutchinson has one-year remaining on his contract but is currently one of the Istanbul giants key players. Besiktas have yet to enter contact extension talks with the star midfielder.

The 33-year-old played a vital role in the Besiktas side that won the league title last season and will keep his place in the team next season if he were to stay.
