West Ham manager Slaven Bilic has admitted that West Ham made attempts to bring in new signings prior to Euro 2016 but found it “impossible” to conclude any deals.
The Hammers are thought to have made a £31 million offer for Alexandre Lacazette only for it to be turned down, they then made a £16m bid for Carlos Bacca. We also enquired about the availability of Jamie Vardy prepared to pay his £25m release clause to Leicester.
Bilic has previously denied we had £31.5m bid for Michy Batshuayi turned down saying “It is simply not true that we have made a bid. What’s in the papers is not true.”
Slaven Bilic who is a TV pundit for Euro 2016 told ITV Sport: “
Suspect most agents will advise their Cash Cows to wait until after the Euros, as they might be able to get a better price.
I believe every word he says and am sure when we are ready he will get who he wants at the right price,
Until he lies cheats or acts like some of other previous managers he will get 100% surport from me,
