Could Sofiane Feghouli demands scupper West Ham United exit?

West Ham United’s Sofiane Feghouli has been linked with Galatasaray in the summer transfer window.

Sofiane Feghouli arrived at West Ham United in the summer of 2016 amid hype and expectation.

The Algeria international midfielder had been a good player at Valencia, and much was expected of him at the London Stadium.

The 27-year-old midfielder, though, struggled to make a huge impact at West Ham last season.

Feghouli was able to make only 11 starts in the Premier League for the Hammers and made 10 further appearances as a substitute.

The Algerian scored three goals and provided three assists in the league, and one should not be surprised if West Ham manager Slaven Bilic decides to let him go in the summer transfer window.

However, there is a possibility that Feghouli’s wage demands could create a problem in another club signing him.

According to FutbolArena, Galatasaray are interested in signing Feghouli this summer, but the Turkish giants are unable to match the midfielder’s wage demands.

The West Ham midfielder has rejected an offer of €2.8 million (£2.45m) per year as salary from Galatasaray, according to the report, which also claims that the former Valencia man wants a €3m (£2.63m) signing-on fee.

It seems that Feghouli is demanding quite a lot of money to move to a new club, and perhaps this could see him remain at West Ham for the 2017-18 campaign.

Although the Hammers and Galatasaray are reported to have agreed a €5m (£4.38m) fee over the transfer of Feghouli, it remains to be seen if the Turkish club increase their salary offer.
