West Ham United make “best offer” to sign Aleix Garcia

West Ham United are reportedly ready to offer a €4 million-a-year contract to sign 26-year-old Spanish midfielder Aleix Garcia from high-flying La Liga club Girona.

According to a report by AS, as relayed by Sport Witness, Aleix Garcia is the subject of interest from West Ham United. The Hammers are trying to beat the competition to the signature of the Girona midfielder, offering him a contract worth €4 million per year. Meanwhile, the high-flying La Liga club might sell him for €20 million.

The rise and rise of Aleix Garcia

Aleix Garcia has blossomed into one of the best midfielders in La Liga since joining Girona from SD Eibar in July 2021. The Spaniard played a leading role in establishing the Catalan outfit as a mainstay in the Spanish top flight. In addition, his exploits have helped him break into his national team.

Meanwhile, Garcia was exceptional in the 2023/24 campaign, chipping in with three goals and six assists in 40 appearances across all competitions. However, instead of participating in the UEFA Champions League with Girona, the 26-year-old might embark on a new adventure in the summer transfer window.

The Spanish international does not have a shortage of suitors pursuing his signature heading into the summer transfer window. West Ham United will be one of the prospective suitors vying for Aleix Garcia’s services.

London calling?

West Ham United’s interest in Aleix Garcia is understandable. The Hammers are scouring the market for a versatile midfielder heading into the summer transfer window amid uncertainties surrounding the long-term future of Lucas Paqueta. In addition, Tomas Soucek has seen his performance levels drop in the last two seasons.

So, Garcia has emerged as a viable target, with West Ham keen on prising the 26-year-old away from Girona. The high-flying La Liga club might sell him for around €20 million. Meanwhile, the Hammers have offered a €4 million-a-year contract to the Spaniard, which they feel is the best possible proposal.

It will be interesting to see €4 million-a-year wages are enough to tempt Garcia to swap Girona for West Ham in the summer transfer window. Meanwhile, coughing up €20 million to secure the Spanish midfielder’s services might be possible as Julen Lopetegui pushes the East London club to sign him from the high-flying La Liga club.
