West Ham United are reportedly in talks with FC Nordsjaelland to secure the services of 19-year-old talent Ibrahim Osman.
The Hammers keen on bolstering their squad, have made a £15.4 million bid for the versatile left-winger.
Despite Nordsjaelland rejecting the initial offer, the London club remains confident in securing Osman before the January transfer window closes.
The youngster, who emerged from the Ghanian Right to Dream Academy, showcased his skills in the Norwegian first division after a move in 2023. Osman’s versatility across the frontline aligns with the modern style of football, making him an attractive prospect for the Hammers.
As favourites in the race for Osman’s signature, West Ham United aim to make an offer that Nordsjaelland cannot refuse. The UEFA Conference League holders, currently enjoying a promising season, see Osman as a valuable addition to strengthen their squad for the rest of the 2023/24 campaign.
While West Ham United also considers Leeds United’s Wilfried Gnonto, Osman’s potential to develop into a top-tier talent positions him as a strategic investment for the club’s future. Landing Osman could be a significant move for West Ham, securing their left flank for years to come and potentially marking a coup in the transfer market.
