OPINION

It will be interesting to see whether are able to sign Fortounis during the summer window, as Manuel Pellegrini looks to improve the depth in quality in his ahead of next season. Fortounis’ contract situation with could help in their negotiations for the 26-year-old playmaker, with the Greek club not wanting the midfielder to leave the club on a free at the end of next season. However, West Ham will have to increase their reported opening bid for the player, and it will be interesting to see whether Pellegrini elects to up his offer or move on to another target, with Barcelona’s Andre Gomes also another midfield option this summer. West Ham will be looking to improve the level of creativity coming from their midfield this summer, and Fortounis could be a very good option to be the player to provide that, having scored 12 goals from midfield in the Greek Super League this season.
