Sosa, so good

West Ham are poised to make another raid on Slaven Bilic's former club.

Having already courted the likes of Gokhan Tore, Veli Kavlak and Oguzhan Ozyakup in recent weeks, West Ham are now said to be lining up a bid for yet another Besiktas star - Argentine international Jose Sosa.

The 30-year-old midfielder - who has previously enjoyed spells with Bayern Munich (2007-10) and Napoli (2010-11) - has been in Turkey with the Black Eagles for the past two seasons, having made the move from Atletico in La Liga during the summer of 2014.

And according to a KUMB source, the Hammers are lining up a £9million bid for the CarcaranŠ-born Sosa, who has also been linked with a return home to Argentina this week.

Estudiantes, with whom Sosa began his professional career back in 2002 are also rumoured to be keen on re-signing the player. Earlier this week SOsa indicated that he would not be averse to a move back to his first team.

Sosa made 31 appearances for Besiktas last season, scoring seven goals and providing 12 assists.
