Haller in London as new bid reports emerge

West Ham bid to sign Sebastien Haller may have been hit by overnight interest from an unnamed Champions League club.

With the player having arrived in London for an Irons medical, news broke that the deal may be threatened by late interest, possibly from Borussia Dortmund.

However, there was no confirmation from the player’s agent that was the case following an official tweet from Eintracht Frankfurt that a deal had been agreed with the Irons and that the way was clear for Haller to undergo his medical in the east end.

West Ham were refusing to confirm or deny the claims of new interest although it would seem strange for the player and his agent to travel to London overnight were there serious interest from elsewhere in Europe at the same time.

Most outlets reporting the news, claim that last year’s second placed Bundesliga side Dortmund may be the club involved although the striker would be offered nothing like the wages he could pick up from a Premier League

According to https://www.capology.com/club/eintracht-frankfurt/salaries. Haller is earning just over £15k a week and has negotiated a deal of £70k,  a week – or £3.3 million a year,at the Irons.

Another report suggests Inter Milan may be interested although apart from 34 year old Brazilian central defender Miranda, no player earns more than around £2.8 million a year and some much less. https://www.totalsportek.com/money/inter-milan-salaries/

  1. It’s probably click bait Hugh and you probably know it but hey let’s generate a
    Bit for ourselves at C&H
    What I am surprised at is only 2 clubs
    Are trying to hijack our deal and no
    Mention of spurs yet

  2. For God’s sake just get this deal over the line.
    Whatever it takes.
    If we lost out again at this late stage, it will be demoralizing

  3. Other clubs do their deals quickly, quietly and smoothly.No not us it’s not the west ham way.There always seems to be a last minute hitch.

  4. Does this smell of arry scouting for his rookie nephew?

  5. Thanks for the info and for all the work you put in for us, Hugh. As far as Halley is concerned, I’ll remain quietly optimistic until he’s announced officially. I must admit I’m absolutely thrilled at the prospect, seems like a clear better choice vs M Gomez.

    COYI, our squad is clearly better than Arsenal, Chelsea and Man United
