Besiktas Waiting for West Ham Bid for Gary Medel With Turkish Side Embroiled in Financial Struggles

?West Ham are pursuing Besiktas midfielder Gary Medel as Manuel Pellegrini looks to reinforce his options in the midfield engine room.

West Ham have already made a couple of signings this summer, bringing in goalkeepers Roberto and David Martin from Espanyol and Millwall respectively following the departure of Adrian.

Turkish media outlet ?Fanatik believe Besiktas are awaiting a second bid from the Premier League side and would welcome a deal due to their financial troubles, meaning offloading Medel could raise much needed funds.

Although Wilshere and Sanchez should be fit for the start of the next term, the West Ham boss will want to avoid being left short again, so midfield cover is a necessity.

The Hammers had Medel on their radar back in January and reportedly had an offer of around £6.5m rejected by the Turkish club.

As of now there has been no official bid for Medel during this window, but with only 12 months left on his contract and the Turkish side in desperate need of funds, it is believed there is an option for Pellegrini to get his man on the cheap in the upcoming weeks.

Carlos Sanchez and Jack Wilshere endured lengthy spells on the sidelines in 2018/19, leaving Declan Rice, ?Mark Noble and  Pedro Obiang to fend for themselves in the middle of the park.
