Bookies put star names on Irons wanted list


Romelu_Lukaku_3156402bSome high powered targets are appearing on the West Ham radar – from the bookies anyway!

Even Romelu Lukaku – who is apparently available at £80k – finds himself quoted at 50/1 for a move to the London Stadium which demonstrates just how out of touch the bookies so often are in their hunt for punters’ cash.

Amazingly, Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez is also apparently an outsider at 33/1 to find himself in the claret and blue whilst Aaron Ramsey gets a price tag of 20/1 attached to him by Skybet.

Andre Brown – often mentioned as a possible for the Irons – gets a 161/quote quote while  Leeds goal machine Chris Wood – 30 goals in 49 appearances – is listed at 16/1.

Meanwhile Andy Carroll is quoted by Skybet at 7/2 for a return to Newcastle whilst Aaron Cresswell gets a 1/3 price to remain at the Irons after being linked with Liverpool.
