Brentford ‘willing’ to offload Hull City target as fifth summer addition edges closer

The latest Brentford transfer news includes a potential departure

Hull City are reportedly being patient in their pursuit of Brentford attacker Halil Dervisoglu.

The Tigers are believed to be keen on luring the winger away from the Brentford Community Stadium before the end of the transfer window.

Shota Arveladze’s side have already landed his Turkey international teammates Ozan Tufan and Dogukan Sinik.

And now, according to Hull Live, the Championship club have now set their sights on Dervisoglu as they look to add another option at the top end of the pitch.

The report also adds that the Bees are ‘willing’ to offload the 22-year-old once they bring in cover and that the player is ‘keen’ on a switch to the MKM Stadium.

He came off the bench for Thomas Frank’s side in their 2-2 draw away at Leicester City over the weekend.

More details

Despite landing Keane Lewis-Potter from Hull last month, Brentford are now poised to sign Denmark international Mikkel Damsgaard.

The Daily Mail report that the London club ‘hope’ to secure the transfer of the Sampdoria ace this week in a deal that would potentially push Dervisoglu down the pecking order.

The former Sparta Rotterdam man moved to England back in 2020 but has struggled to make an impact with the Bees.

He has only played 11 times for their first-team and has managed a single goal.

Dervisoglu has found himself out on loan at FC Twente and Galatasaray over recent campaigns and a potential switch to Hull now would give him an opportunity to get more game time under his belt.
