Hello Hammers. Here is today’s lunchtime round up.
Manchester City want a buy back clause in any deal for striker Kelechi Iheanacho this summer. (Metro)
Iheanacho has reportedly flown back to England from international duty after West Ham made a bid for him. (HITC)
Well this deal seems to be edging closer, and I will be very happy if we do manage to sign him. He is a very good, young striker who has so much potential. However, I do hope that we manage to agree a deal that does not include a buy back clause.
Liverpool are being linked with a summer move for West Ham and England left back Aaron Cresswell. (HITC)
This story seems to come up every window, but I can’t see it happening right now. Aaron seems happy at West Ham right now, and I can’t see any reason for him wanting to move.
Ray Parlour says West Ham would be an ideal place for Jack Wilshere to go, should he leave Arsenal. (Express)
I would have taken Wilshere earlier in the season, as he had a good season for Bournemouth. However, I would stay away now since he suffered yet another injury.
Pablo Zabaleta says he was persuaded to join West Ham by fellow Argentine Manuel Lanzini. (Mail)
This is good to see. I hope Pablo settles into the side well and becomes a top player for us.
West Ham want to offer £25million plus Adrian for Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. (Sun)
This does seem like a good deal, but I would offer then Randolph instead of Adrian. Randolph is a Championship goalkeeper at best, whereas Adrian is too good for that league. I hope this story has some legs to it.
