Antonio and Wolves – the facts

By Hughie Southon

There is no chance of Mikey Antonio joing Wolves as things stand.

The 32 year old been reported by  talkSPORT journalist Alex Crookas possibly looking for a new challenge.

And it has been reported by other media outlets that Wolves are keenly interested in the Hammers long serving striker/winger,

Antonio himself has spoken of his disenchantment with not starting games and clearly could be happier at the club following the arrival of a younger striker in Gianluca Scamacca.

However, it has been made clear to ClaretandHugh exclusively that the front man – who let’s be fair – has been bang out of form for weeks – cannot be allowed to depart the club leaving us again with just one striker.

David Moyes has been offered money for a new front man but seems reluctant to go down that road with a new central defender needed should Daws leave.

Our top contact at the club said: “It could happen eventually. Who knows, but unless or until we get a forward in zero chance he can go anywhere.”
