West Ham have turned down the chance to sign Fenerbahce striker Robin van Persie.
The Mirror says the former Arsenal and Manchester United striker was willing to take a huge pay cut to join them.
The 32-year-old marksman netted 16 times last season for Fenerbahce last season, helping the Turkish club into the Champions League qualifiers.
He signed a three-year deal last summer understood to be £240,000-a-week to move to Istanbul from Manchester United.
Boss Vitor Pereira wants to keep him after losing another of his top players, Nani, to Valencia in a £7million switch last week.
