Yann Karamoh has been linked with a move to the Premier League side
Tuesday, May 15, 2018
West Ham United have had a loan bid for Inter Milan winger Yann Karamoh rejected.
The 19-year-old moved to the San Siro from Caen last summer on a two-year loan deal.
As part of that agreement, the France under-21 international will join Inter permanently in June 2019 for around £5 million.
However, Karamoh has endured a mixed first season in Italy and it has been claimed he is assessing his future.
As a result, Inter are reportedly in talks with Caen about buying the winger outright now – instead of in 2019 – and then selling him on for a quick profit.
That news has alerted West Ham, who were one of several Premier League sides tracking Karamoh last year.
The Hammers are still interested in the teenager but, according to Tutto Mercato, their loan offer has been rejected by Inter.
The Italian club could be tempted into agreeing a permanent transfer, but it remains to be seen whether West Ham would be interested in such a deal.
The club are still technically without a permanent manager after David Moyes’ contract ran out at midnight on Sunday evening.
