Report: Borna Sosa very close to West Ham move, but Newcastle are keen

Borna Sosa is very close to sealing a move to the Premier League with West Ham leading the charge, but Index in Croatia reports that Newcastle United could yet offer even more for the left-back.

The Hammers are looking to step up their pursuit of a number of players. It has been a bittersweet window for David Moyes, with some impressive signings brought in. But they need more before the deadline passes.

And it seems that Sosa could possibly be West Ham’s next signing. Index reports that the 24-year-old’s representatives have been in England over the past two days to hold talks regarding a potential Premier League move.

It is claimed that he is very close to sealing a deal. And it is West Ham on pole position to sign the Stuttgart star. The Irons could pay around £17 million for the Croatia international.

However, there may be a late sting in the tail.

Index reports that Newcastle have joined the race and could offer more for Sosa.

Sosa very close to West Ham move

Sosa could be an incredibly exciting signing for West Ham if they now agree a deal. The defensive side of his game is not the most impressive. But he is absolutely outstanding in the left wing-back role.

He has provided 17 assists across the last two seasons in the Bundesliga. Sosa is someone who makes a real impact in the final third.

Reports earlier in the year suggested that Arsenal and Tottenham wanted Sosa. And it has been suggested that he has the same qualities as David Beckham.

It would be a real coup for West Ham to get a deal done. But clearly, their fans may not relax until he is holding a claret and blue shirt while Newcastle are lurking in the background.
