Report: West Ham have bid for Adem Ljajic accepted, player rejects move

West Ham have reportedly had a bid accepted for Roma star Adem Ljajic.

According to Gianluca di Marzio, West Ham have made a formal approach to sign Roma playmaker Adem Ljajic on a season-long loan, which has been accepted by the Serie A side.

They reportedly offered a season-long loan fee of £2 million, with an option to buy at a later date for a further £6 million. Roma are looking to get Ljajic off their books this summer, and willingly accepted the Hammers offer.

However, when it came to the 23-year-old making his decision on the move, the Serbian attacking midfielder rejected West Ham’s offer as he is ‘not convinced by the destination’ according to the report.

He is still expected to leave the Giallorossi this summer, but it does not appear as if West Ham will be the team securing his services.

Two other Premier League sides have been linked with bringing in Ljajic this summer, following the confirmation of his availability on the transfer market.

Il Tempo claim that Tottenham Hotspur have been showing an interest in him recently, whilst Gianluca di Marzio reported earlier this week that Aston Villa were in talks to bring him to England before the close of the window.
