On the file for several weeks, West Ham is the offensive for the central defender of OM, Duje Caleta-Car. The Premier League club has made a concrete offer to complete the signing of the defender from Marseille.
OM Mercato : An offer of 17 M€ for Duje Caleta-Car
Olympique the Marseille has considerably strengthened its defensive line during the summer with the arrival of Luan Peres, William Saliba and Leonardo Balerdi. It was therefore necessary to anticipate the probable departure of Duje Caleta-Car, who is expected to join the Premier League. But less than a month before the end of the market scheduled for August 31, the Croatian international is still in Marseille, due to a rather quiet market in England. However, things should accelerate in the coming days.
The team reveals that the English club West Ham has taken action for Duje Caleta-Car. Indeed, the Hammers would have offered 17 million euros (including bonuses) to acquire the services of the defender from Marseille. Will Olympique the Marseille give up their center back at this price? We can ask the question while the offers are not yet legion in the offices of the OM.
OM expects additional efforts
For the moment, we are still far from the price demanded by the leaders of Olympique the Marseille. The leaders of Marseille would require no less than 20 million euros for his transfer. West Ham knows what to do to complete the deal. The two teams are still negotiating to find a common ground. For his part, Duje Caleta-Car would he be tempted by the London club? Answer in the next few days.
Recall that the 24-year-old defender arrived at Olympique the Marseille in July 2018 from RB Salzburg for a check of 19 million euros. He is still under contract until June 2023 with OM. He has played a total of 76 Ligue 1 games for 3 and 2 assists in three seasons in the colors of Marseille.
