West Ham United, Arsenal, and Tottenham Hotspur are all in battle.

According to Daily Sabah, West Ham United have made Galatasaray player Kerem Akturkoglu one of their midfield targets.

According to T24, the Turkish media stated on Tuesday (10 October) that Premier League rivals Tottenham and Arsenal are also interested in Akturkoglu.

Akturkoglu scored against Manchester United in the Champions League last week and is being closely monitored by English clubs.

Last week, Akturkoglu scored against Manchester United in the Champions League and is being eagerly watched by English clubs.

Akturkoglu made a name for himself by equalising for Galatasaray before Mauro Icardi sealed a 3-2 Champions League triumph at Old Trafford on 3 October.

This season, the 24-year-old has five goals and six assists in all competitions for Galatasaray, which helps to explain the links with three Premier League heavyweights.

He’s under contract until 2026, so Gala won’t be obliged to sell the versatile attacker unless their valuation is fulfilled in full in January or later.

Akturkoglu, who has 22 senior caps for Turkey, has mostly played on the left side of offensive midfield this season [WhoScored], which is not a position West Ham is particularly strong in.

However, with Lucas Paqueta perhaps on his way out and Mohammed Kudus maybe being played in a more central position, United appear to be looking for an alternative wide option.

One thing is certain: further performances like the one we witnessed at Old Trafford last week, and he will be pursued by clubs other than West Ham, Tottenham Hotspur, and Arsenal.

In other West Ham news, analyst Darren Bent believes a Hammers player is good enough to start for Manchester United.
