Brentford have turned down West Ham’s latest bid for striker Scott Hogan, according to reports by The Guardian.
The report claims that less than 48 hours ago, the East London club tabled another bid—their third of such—for the English forward, Hogan. The bid was reportedly promptly rejected as it failed to meet Brentford’s valuation of £15M. Said to be in the region of £12.5M, this offer by West Ham was an improvement on their previous bids of £9M and £10M.
West Ham coach Slaven Bilic has identified Hogan—who has recorded 14 goals so far this season—as the ideal man to spice up his attack – a situation caused by the failures of summer signings Sofiane Feghouli, Simeone Zaza, and Jonathan Calleri in front of the goal in the first half of the season.
All three players have been linked with loan moves away from the London club, with AS Roma expressing interest in Feghouli, and Zaza being expected to move back to Juventus after a torrid half-season in England.
Jonathan Calleri has also been linked with a move to La Liga side Las Palmas.
