Growing belief Hammers into striker

We don’t like to boast – and it may not be much to boast about at this stage of things – but it seems Sky Sports news is catching up with Claetandhugh.

Now – neither of us may be right – but we have held the view for some tme that the Hammers may well be more tempted by Boulaye Dia as their striker target than any of the others named.

This is mainly because the agent keeps mentioning us and that prices in France are cheap because of a broadcasting deal which collapsed

However, we understand too that David Moyes has various other targets on his list which haven’t been named in the media.

Now however  Sky Sports journalist Kaveh SolhekolWest Ham  has announced that he too has heard th Irons into  Reims striker Dia in a big way.

The Sky journalist claims that Dia is one player who is under consideration, and the Hammers are really interested in signing him.

However, the claim that he is the ONE player under consideration is far and away from  reality with Moyes scouring the Championship too for another Jarrod Bowen.

He admits that is his favourite shopping area but in the current circumstances the French market is particularly attractive price wise nd Dia is indeed a possibility.

  1. Sky Sports just trawl the internet looking for ITK information on transfers then announce it on their Transfer Show as “Sky sources”

  2. Other reports say we have only made loose enquiries as to the players availability, something we have obviously done with many many other strikers. We have not made a formal offer. Seems to me we spend a long time window shopping before we actually buy a player. Is this a good strategy or not? It means we might miss out on certain players that end up going to other clubs that are more serious about getting the player they want in early, or are more ready to part with their cash early. on the other hand many of our signings under Moyes have proved to be under the radar absolute bargains that come in at the last minute and take everyone by surprise with how good they are. So who knows. Only time will tell.
