West Ham To Make Offer For Moussa Sow

English Premier League club West Ham United are set to make an offer to Turkish club Fenerbahce for the services of Senegalese striker Moussa Sow.

The Senegal international has been a transfer target for a number of clubs during the current market window, due to his excellent performances in attack for the Turkish giants.

According to the Daily Express, the offer from the Hammers is expected to be around $18.7 million, which is likely to interest the Istanbul club.

The 29-year-old was in good form last season, managing to score 14 goals in 33 appearances in the Turkish top flight league, raising his profile as a result and gaining interest in France, where he previously played for Lille before joining the Turkish outfit in 2012, as well as in England, where West Ham and Sunderland have been keen suitors.

He recently denied rumours that he would be leaving Turkey, as he still has a year left on his contract at the club, but the arrival of Robin Van Persie coupled with a substantial offer from West Ham could see the player and his team change their tune and agree to the transfer.

Aside from his time in Turkey during the last four years, Sow’s professional football career has been spent in France, where he began in 2004 at Rennes (including a one-year loan spell at Sedan in 2007) before joining Lille in 2010.

Having represented France at junior level in the under-19 and under-21 teams, he opted to play for the Senegal national team, where he has appeared 29 times, scoring 11 goals.
