‘We have made an agreement’ – CEO opens West Ham door to sign 21-year-old attacker

After recent comments from the CEO of FC Midtjylland, West Ham United could sign in January despite not desperately needing him.

West Ham have been keeping a close eye on the Danish club’s young midfielder, Gustav Isaksen, who has been impressive in both the league and Europa League this season. The London club are said to be very interested in signing him if the opportunity arises.

And now Midtjylland chief executive Claus Steinlein has publicly admitted that the club have reached a “verbal agreement” with the player and his team that the 21-year-old will be able to leave in the summer.

He said (via Tipbladet):

“We have reached an agreement with Gustav, his family and his agent that he will stay until the summer and then we will sell.”

“However, the offer may become too big, and I fear it will.

“I was informed a week ago that the biggest sale in Super League history is €20m (£17.5m), and if he has to go, we have to beat him.

He has already scored seven goals this season from the right side of midfield and is quickly emerging as one of the hottest young talents in the country.

If Jarrod Bowen’s epic form from last season continues at London Stadium, he could easily be gone for years to come, and the club must be looking for a suitable replacement.

Other Premier League clubs interested in Isaksen include billionaire-owned Arsenal and Newcastle United, as well as Italian powerhouses AC Milan and Fiorentina.

The interest from Arsenal, Newcastle and AC Milan, in particular, should be enough to convince Rob Newman and company that he is a player with potential coming out of their ears, and £17.2m could be seen as a complete steal from long term. run.
