West Ham eyeing 24-year-old Turkish attacker as replacement for Liverpool target


According to Turkish media commentator Haldun Domac via Haber Sarikirmizi, West Ham United are reportedly interested in Kerem Akturloglu as a potential replacement for Jarrod Bowen. The England international only signed a new deal on Sunday, but there are still chances of him leaving amid heavy interest from Liverpool.

West Ham United had a big task on their hands this season, and that was to retain Jarrod Bowen at all costs. The 26-year-old England international has had a phenomenal start to the season. He has become David Moyes’s bonafide leader in the attack.

With Liverpool tracking his situation, the Reds had earmarked to sign Bowen as a replacement for Mohamed Salah. The 26-year-old penned a new long-term contract until 2030, which will see West Ham retain him at least for a few years.

Even if they decide to sell him, suitors like Liverpool might have to pay a mammoth fee to tempt West Ham. Arsenal have also shown an interest in Bowen, but Mikel Arteta will look at other options now that the winger has committed his future to the Hammers.

Yet, Liverpool will remain confident about signing Bowen if Salah leaves, as the Hammers man may become their No.1 target to replace the Egyptian. Turkish media commentator Haldun Domac insists West Ham are already looking at Kerem Akturloglu. The Hammers want him as a potential replacement for the 26-year-old winger.

The 24-year-old Turkish attacker was one of Galatasaray’s star performers when they won against Manchester United at Old Trafford recently. Otherwise, he has had a good start to the campaign and is essentially considered one of the important stars of Turkish football.

Signing him will prove a costly affair, as Galatasaray will demand top dollar from suitors. Tottenham are also keen on Akturloglu, but as per Domac, West Ham could hold a serious interest in the 24-year-old Turkish attacker.

Domac said, “West Ham United clearly wants Kerem Aktürkoğlu. It is even said that Jarrod Bowen will go to Liverpool instead of Mohamed Salah and Kerem Aktürkoğlu will go to West Ham instead. Kerem has a contract until 2026. He also has suitors from Italy and Spain. We can clearly say that Kerem is developing very quickly.”

Interest from other countries like Spain and Italy is only seen naturally, as many Turkish players have excelled in those leagues. The Premier League will have its pull if any of the English sides show an interest in the 24-year-old Turkish attacker, including West Ham.
