Hammers explain Tadic ‘position’



West Ham hold only a minimal interest in Southampton winger Dusan Tadic and the player is certainly not on the Slaven Bilic priority list.

The club have been credited with an interest in the national press this week but in fact the Hammers are far keener to bring in their out and out strikers.

With Andrew Ayew and Manu Lanzini both capable of filling the left wing position favoured by Tadic and with Sofiane Feghouli available on the right, there is only a passing interest in the £15 million rated player although the Saints player can operate on that side.

We were told this morning that the chances of buying Tadic “or somebody like him” ¬†were no higher than five per cent although his one of many names the Hammers have on list of possibles.

As has been repeated many times, the club is almost overstocked in the midfield and having sort the troublesome right back spot continue to concentrate on the two forwards they now need.

    “with Sofiane Feghouli available on the right”

    number 1 occupier of the right wing HAS to be Antonio. Please.

  • West Ham Fan No 32 says:

    Feghouli looked pretty decent centrally and that central position is also Fernandes position that he played for Sion so effectively, agree we have an embarassment of riches in midfield although Tadic is very good.

  • Michael Miller says:

    Tadic is a good player, but I think Southampton have had a few temperamental problems with him.

    I would have Tadic over Feghouli any day and twice on Sundays. Get rid of Ferghouli anyway. He only seemed to show his potential when it was time for the shop window to open. He doesn’t track back and when he gets tackled, shows no interest in winning the ball back. And get rid of Snodgrass while they’re at it!
    Antonio is our No.1 right winger and i agree with No.32 that Fernandes is a very bright option for us in that midfield. Tadic would fit perfect on the left.

  • Alan D says:

    I’d keep Feghouli, he is far better tha Antonio with the final ball, granted Antonio is better in all other areas, if anyone is to go it has to be Snodgrass, he looks out of his depth in our team.
