West Ham United transfer round-up: Club to make second offer for winger

A selection of the latest news concerning West Ham United.

According to the Telegraph, the Hammers are set to make a second offer for Everton winger Kevin Mirallas having seen an opening approach rejected.

A £6 million offer was turned down by the Merseyside club at the weekend, but West Ham believe he wants to leave Goodison Park, with the Boleyn Ground one of his preferred destinations.

There is no reference as to an asking price Everton have placed on Mirallas’s head, although it is not likely they want to sell him for cheap.

West Ham also retain an interest in Charlie Austin, as per the Standard. The QPR striker has been a target for much of the summer, but they are looking to push forward with a move for the Englishman with the knowledge that Andy Carroll could be out of action until November.

However, they are still put off by the £15 million price tag requested by QPR, and will likely hold off a move unless they can lower the forward’s value.

Finally, Alex Song is looking to sort out his future in the coming days, with a permanent move to the Boleyn Ground on hold.

Barcelona have yet to formally sanction a deal to sell Song permanently this summer, and a report in Sport confirms that the Cameroonian midfielder has flown back to Camp Nou to talk with club chiefs about his future.

He wants to remain in England with the Hammers, and is looking to facilitate his exit from the club this week.
