Speculation on forums has been circulating all day that a top Premier League club is keen to do a deal with one of the Hammers first teamers.
And ClaretandHugh has been told over the last few minutes that Valencia is indeed the player in question and it’s Jose Mourinho who is behind the move.
And we understand that Remy is the bait being offered in a deal which would see Chelsea also part with £5 million after triggering his £10.5 million release clause from Queens Park Rangers last year.
Hammers insiders insist they won’t entertain a player plus cash deal and speaking to Claretandhugh one said: “We’ll be glad when this window closes.”
However, it would be wrong to ‘never say never’ but at this stage it looks unlikely despite the inquiry valuing the Ecuadorian at around £3 million more than we paid for the player.
