West Ham have made an offer to sign Nikola Maksimovic

Napoli defender Nikola Maksimovic is set to be a free agent this summer and the player has received offers from West Ham United and Crystal Palace.

The likes of Real Betis and Sevilla have submitted offers for the experienced centre-back as well.

According to reports via Area Napoli, the defender is still undecided on his future and he is hoping that Napoli will come forward with a contract offer for him.

The Hammers need to add more defensive depth to their side and signing the 29-year-old on a free transfer would be a superb move for them.

They certainly have the resources to fend off the competition from the likes of Crystal Palace, Real Betis and Sevilla. Furthermore, the London club will be able to offer him Europa League football as well.

The chance to move to the Premier League could prove to be an exciting new challenge for Maksimovic.

The 29-year-old has already proven himself in the Italian league and has the quality to succeed in the Premier League.

The Serbian defender can operate in both centre-back positions as well as a right-back. His versatility will be an added bonus for David Moyes if the Hammers manage to secure his services.

The Serbian defender could partner the likes of Issa Diop or Angelo Ogbonna at the back next season.

West Ham will need depth and quality at the back to cope with European football and Maksimovic would be an experienced addition for a bargain price.



Everton and West Ham want Rangers midfielder Glen Kamara

Rangers star Glen Kamara is a wanted man in the Premier League, and according to Give Me Sport, Everton and West Ham United have both joined the race for his signature.

The Finland international has just two years left on his deal at Ibrox, and is also attracting the likes of Arsenal, Watford and Brentford.

Although Rangers and Kamara have held talks about a new deal, both parties have not been able to reach an agreement, and GMS say Everton and West Ham have gotten in contact with his representatives to enquire about what type of deal he would be looking at this summer.

Sportslens View

Rangers are offering the 25-year-old Champions League football and another chance to win the Scottish Premiership title next season, but could those be enough to keep him at Ibrox beyond the summer?

The Premier League is arguably the best in the world, and the temptation to return after struggling to make the grade at Arsenal could be very much there for Kamara.

West Ham are playing in the Europa League next season and looking to add quality depth in midfield.

The Rangers star has proven his quality in the Scottish top-flight and was not out of place against some of Europe’s best players during Finland’s Euro 2020 campaign.

His quality appears to have attracted Everton too, and the project at Goodison Park is a promising one.

Steven Gerrard’s side have a huge battle on their hands this summer, and may have to cash in on him this summer if they are not willing to give him the deal he wants.

It could be best for both parties to part ways, and Rangers stand to make a lot of profit on a player who cost them just £50,000.
