Gray favourite to join Hammers

Andre_Gray_2016Burnley striker Andre Gray is now odds on favourite to join West Ham.  Bookmaker William Hill have reduced the odds to 5/6 for the 26-year-old to join the Hammers at the London Stadium with odds of 7/4 for him to stay at Turf Moor.

Everton are listed at 4/1, Newcastle 7/1, Crystal Palace 14/1 while Spurs are 16/1 and West Brom 20/1.

However, yesterday news broke that big-spending Wolves could make a shock £20million move for Gray.

With Gray refusing to sign a new contract with just 12 months of his current deal to run, Burnley boss Sean Dyche is prepared to let the striker leave for the highest price.

If Wolves did outbid the Hammers it would mean a hometown return for Gray, who was in the Wolves ­academy until the age of 13, before joining Shrewsbury Town.

West Ham received £6.5m for Ashley Fletcher and said to be in the market for a back-up striker who would be happy to wait out their time on the bench.

  1. Not sure……..

  2. We have Hernandez, Ayew, Carroll and Sakho, Antonio can also play up top so we have options. We have Lanzini, Arnautovic and Quina as playmakers. we are in great shape in terms of creativity. I can see the logic if we can get a proven striker for 5-6m if Carroll and Sakho are both injured. However I think Gray is just too good to be sitting on the bench. Another option is looking into the championship to see if there is another player like Antonio we could take a punt on. I think our priority should be looking to offload both Snodgrass and Feghouli and bring in a young left sided wide player with serious potential.

  3. Already got one: Holland

  4. Forget it……Gray is another Snodgrass
