Hello Hammers. Here is today’s lunchtime round up.
West Ham are interested in Pablo Zabaleta or Bacary Sagna from Manchester City this summer. (Sky Sports)
I would be happy with either of these, but I think I would edge towards Zabaleta. He is a very good right back with plenty of experience, and he is also a leader on the pitch. That is something we have lacked this season and we still need someone like him in our squad.
West Ham striker Diafra Sakho is set to return against Arsenal tonight. (Evening Standard)
Having Sakho back is a huge boost to the team. He is s brilliant striker on his day, and I just hope that he stays fit.
Vodafone are in talks to rename the London Stadium. (Telegraph)
I quite like the idea of Vodafone having the naming rights. The Vodafone Arena, that has a nice ring to it in my opinion.
West Ham are keen to sign Lazar Markovic from Liverpool this summer. (Mail)
I would stay away from this one if I am honest. I really do not think he is that good, and I think we have enough options in that position already.
Michy Batshuayi will be chased by West Ham this summer. (Daily Star)
He is my number one target this summer. I really hope we do sign him, because I think he has so much potential to become a top forward.
Leeds defender Liam Cooper has been banned for six games, after he stamped on Reece Oxford. (Daily Record)
I saw that stamp on Reece, and it was absolutely disgusting. He deserves a longer ban for something like that, because it is totally unacceptable in the game.
