Premier League club side West Ham United are ready to go for the jugular as they look to go in for a move to bag the star striker Mario Mandzukic from Italian Serie A champions Juventus in the next transfer window. Slaven Bilic, the current coach of the Hammers is looking desperate to add firepower to his side for the next season after the recently concluded one has been a pretty remorseful one for the Hammers.
West Ham United have ended their current campaign in the eleventh position on the League table, with a below par performance from the strikers Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll. Both of the marksmen missed a number of opportunities to make things better for the Hammers and missed a number of games as well given their injuries. Reportedly, West Ham might look to offload both of them in the forthcoming transfer window, given that they get the right price to let go of the duo.
Slaven Bilic was the coach of the senior Croatian football side for a prolonged time of six years and developed a healthy relationship with all the players of the squad including Mario Mandzukic. Now as the coach of West Ham United, the Croatian is quite sure that he can make good use of that relationship to lure the star man from the Italian Serie A giants Juventus to play for his side in the Premier League in the next season.
The prospect of playing top flight football with one of the biggest clubs in Europe might be a major detriment in the way for Mandzukic to get rid of his current contract with Juventus that runs till 2019. However, in the current circumstances, the future of the Croatian striker looks far from settled with the Bianconeri and he might be on the move in the next transfer window.
Reportedly, Turkish club Besiktas have been also showing their desperation to rope in the Juventus marksman next summer. As per sources, Besiktas have already readied a bid of £6 million to bag Mandzukic and might come out on top as they vie with the Premier League club West Ham United for the Croatian star to get him into their squad for the next season.
The West Ham United club authority has shown faith in the abilities of Slaven Bilic and has kept him as the man in charge for another season. The ex-Croatian national team coach will surely look to return the favour with a major turnaround in the next season for the Hammers, and the signing of Mandzukic might be a great boost to fulfil his objective.
