According to Turkish outlet Fanatik, as cited on HITC, the 25-year-old is expected to be available for around £26m, and both the Foxes and the Hammers are showing an interest in him.

West Ham have reportedly stepped up their interest in AC Milan’s Hakan Calhanoglu by contacting the player’s entourage, according to Calciomercato, cited by Sport Witness.

The Hammers have been linked with a move for the Turkish international in recent weeks, along with fellow Premier League side Leicester City and Turkish giants Fenerbahce.

Calhanoglu has been a regular under Gennaro Gattuso this season, however, the former Bundesliga playmaker has scored just once in 33 Serie A appearances this season.

Despite the lack of goals, Calhanoglu has impressed with his all-round play in Italy, which has caught the eye of West Ham officials.

And according to the report, West Ham have contacted Calhanoglu’s entourage over a potential summer move.

The 25-year-old has a deal with Milan until 2021, so West Ham will have to match the Italian giants’ valuation of €30m this summer to secure Calhanoglu’s services ahead of the new season.

Manuel Pellegrini is hoping to bolster his squad this summer, with West Ham keen on exploring a new transfer strategy looking to bring in younger players on smaller salaries.

Manuel Pellegrini will remain as West Ham manager next season despite La Liga duo Barcelona and Sevilla reportedly eyeing a move for the 65-year-old. The former Manchester City boss guided the Hammers to a top half finish in the Premier League in his first season in charge at the London Stadium, and was said to be on the radar of the Spanish pair. Barca boss Ernesto Valverde reportedly faces an uncertain future at the club following their dramatic Champions League exit at the hands of Liverpool, while Sevilla are targeting replacements for caretaker manager Joaquin Caparros.
