With West Ham's consistent struggle to cause opponents problems at the back, the January Transfer Window is being looked towards by most fans as a time to bolster our attacking output and turn a so far dismal season around. With that in mind, plenty of players have been linked with a move to The London Stadium. The latest in this long illustrious line is Bruma.

The Portuguese winger is currently plying his trade in Turkey, where this particular rumour is hailing from. Newspaper Fanatik suggests that Bilic is interested in bringing in the player who has scored 4 goals and assisted 3 in his 9 league games for Galatasaray so far this season.

West Ham had hoped that they would be able to pick up the player for £8m however the Turkish side are said to want £17m, a price they may be able to command if rumoured interest from the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham are true.

The 22 year old can possibly been seen as a direct replacement for Gökhan Töre, a player who may be on his way back to Turkey if his loan spell is cancelled in January as has been mooted.
