Argentine striker edges closer to Hammers

calleriArgentine striker Jonathan Calleri is on the verge of joining West Ham on loan claims Brazilian sports website UOL Esporte. The report says Calleri received proposals from Inter Milan in Italy and Sevilla in Spain, but he has decided a move to England to join West Ham is in his best interests. The article says West Ham has an agreement already in place with Uruguay club Deportivo Maldonado. The Brazilian site says Calleri will sign agreement with West Ham in the coming days.

People close to the striker say that at first he expressed preference for transfer to Sevilla but the financial  package from West Ham was much better. He has been on loan to Brazilian club São Paulo since January. On Friday the club’s own insider revealed “I have been told that the Hammers have agreed a deal with two clubs, but it is proving harder than first thought to persuade the calibre of players who want Champions League football to join them.”

Those two clubs are thought to be AC Milan and Deportivo Maldonado. We all know the latest with Carlos Bacca from Ac Milan and his reluctant to give us an answer, hopefully the Jonthan Calleri deal from  Deportivo Maldonado will be much more straight forward to complete.

  1. Well if he finally makes it he could be a dark horse.Everyone was dubious of Tevez when he came and……

  2. Nothing to loose here , another freebie really , a gamble he maybe but ain’t anyone a gamble going to a new side ? A 22 year old exciting prospect who Milan and sevilla fancied ?
    I fancied the lad and yedder to come on board , and it will not cost a fortune , c/l made the difference this year with our ambitions to think big , if not some bad calls we would be there competing for so called top players , might be a blessing in gisguise , anyway its out of our hands , we get what we get and hope the sakho crap hasn’t done to much damage going forward , let’s see what happens with the Jan window if we are up there competing like last year , maybe we won’t need a Marquis pre Madonna ?
