West Ham United’s Pursuit of Ibrahim Osman Hits Snag, Late Bids from Arsenal, Brighton, and Brentford Loom

West Ham's pursuit of Ibrahim Osman faces hurdles, with late bids from Arsenal, Brighton, and Brentford in contention.

West Ham United’s attempt to secure FC Nordsjaelland forward Ibrahim Osman has encountered obstacles as the clubs struggle to agree on a transfer fee. Although the Hammers had offered £16 million, sources reveal that talks hit a standstill. However, new discussions are underway, aiming to resurrect the deal before the transfer window closes.

It’s understood that FC Nordsjaelland is adamant about selling the highly-rated 19-year-old attacker for a fee exceeding West Ham’s initial offer. While negotiations had initially faltered, there’s optimism that a revived deal could materialize before the window shuts.

In the event of a continued impasse with Nordsjaelland, West Ham is reportedly exploring alternative attacking options. Sources indicate that Arsenal, Brighton, and Brentford might make late bids for Osman, with a potential move hinging on these clubs meeting Nordsjaelland’s financial demands.

Football Insider previously disclosed that Osman had turned down offers from Brighton and Brentford, favoring a move to West Ham. The mentioned clubs, however, are closely monitoring the Ghanaian forward’s situation as the transfer window’s closing days approach.

Osman has enjoyed a productive season in Denmark, contributing four goals and five assists across 29 appearances in all competitions. West Ham, currently sitting sixth in the Premier League, remains active in the transfer market, with recent reports indicating their interest, alongside Fulham and Nottingham Forest, in Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah.

As the Hammers gear up for their next league fixture against Bournemouth at the London Stadium, the late pursuit of Osman adds intrigue to West Ham’s transfer activities in the final days of the window.
