West Ham have been linked to Gary Medel for some time now, and despite not succeeding in attempts to sign the midfielder in January, it is understood that the interest has not waned. 

Turkish outlet Fotomac report (translated by Sport Witness) that the 31-year-old is likely to leave Besiktas at the end of the season, with the Hammers named as a possible destination for the Chilean international. 

However, the Irons aren’t the only club interested in acquiring the services of Medel.

Belgian outfit Gent and former side Boca Juniors are also known to be keen on adding the ex-Cardiff City man to their ranks, who has blossomed in the latter years of his career. 

A three year stint at Inter is still fresh in the memory, where the two-time Copa America winner would make himself known on the European stage.
