West Ham’s pursuit of Ibrahim Osman: Hammers lead the race for Nordsjælland’s talented forward

West Ham United have intensified their efforts to secure the services of Nordsjælland’s promising 19-year-old forward Ibrahim Osman. 

The Ghanaian youngster has not only caught the attention of the Hammers but is also being tracked by Premier League rivals Brighton and Crystal Palace, according to Ben Jacobs.

The Hammers have reportedly made inquiries about the talented forward, however as of now, there have been no official offers, but West Ham’s approach suggests a genuine interest in securing Osman’s services.

Nordsjælland, aware of Osman’s rising stock, will expect a significant fee for the transfer. Reports suggest that the Danish club is looking for a fee in the range of €15 million to €20 million for the youngster.

Osman has provided four goals and five assists in the 29 games he has featured in this season, including the two goals he scored in the Europa Conference League.

Following the 1-0 loss to Bristol City in the FA Cup on, David Moyes (full name on first mention) said there was a good chance of new players joining the squad before the close of the transfer window.

The coming weeks of the transfer window will likely see an increased pursuit of the Ghanaian as clubs, including West Ham, aim to finalise their squads for the second half of the season.
