Galatasaray have offered West Ham winger Sofiane Feghouli a contract of £55,000-a-week in a bid to secure his signing, according to Futbol Arena

The Turkish football news website claim that the 27-year-old attacker turned down their initial offer of around £46,000-a-week as it was not enough to convince him to leave the Hammers, and the £2.6million (€3million) signing on bonus he was receiving.

As a result, the Turkish side are said to have upped their offer which would see him sign a four-year deal with the club.

This news comes just days after the same website had reported that a bargain bid of just £4.3million had been accepted by West Ham for his services, having joined the club just a year earlier on a free transfer.

They report that Feghouli is currently on £50,000-a-week at the London Stadium, so Galatasaray’s latest offer represents a reported 10 per cent increase to his wage.

The attacker, who is a 44-time-capped Algerian international, failed to impress during his debut season in East London, managing to contribute just four goals and three assists during his 28 appearances across both league and cup competitions.

He has faced up to a lot of competition for a role in the West Ham attack, with the likes of Michail Antonio, Manuel Lanzini and Andre Ayew all vying for a place in the starting XI.
