West Ham, West Brom eyeing Istanbul Basaksehir fullback Junior Caicara

West Ham and West Brom are eyeing Istanbul Basaksehir fullback Junior Caicara.

The Hammers are leading the race for the 31-year-old but could also face competition from Zenit St Petersburg, says The Sun.

Caicara won the Turkish SuperLig title with Basaksehir last season and can also operate in midfield.

West Ham remain short at right-back following the departures of Pablo Zabaleta and Jeremy Ngakia and it is thought a £3million bid could prise him away from Turkey.

Work permit issues are not thought to be a problem as Ciacara holds a Bulgarian passport.
