West Ham have joined fellow Premier League side Liverpool in the battle for Besiktas defender Domagoj Vida, according to reports.
Vida played a starring role for Croatia as they reached the World Cup final where they lost to France 4-2 in a valiant display in Russia.
Besiktas are understood to want €30million (£26.6million) with Liverpool and West Ham ready to offer €22m (£19.4m).
Everton, meanwhile, are only willing to make a €17million (£15.1million) offer and it is likely, according to the report, that Besiktas will wait to receive more offers before entering formal talks with any club.
A Spor recently claimed Liverpool were edging the race to sign the 29-year-old – with his friendship with Dejan Lovren tipped to swing the tide in the Reds’ favour.
Vida only joined Besiktas in January on a free transfer from Dynamo Kiev with the Super Lig outfit set to make a tidy profit following his impressive World Cup performances.
A spokesman for Besiktas said: “We have received offers for Vida and we are considering them but that does not mean he will definitely leave.
“Every player has a price, we will make a final decision in accordance with our budget and interests.”
