Hammers confirm striker interest

bonyWest Ham are hoping to bring Wifried Bony to the club and have already inquired about his availability.

But it would only be on a loan deal until January as the player is moving on from Manchester City to China in the new year.

Report emerged this morning  the Hammers were interested in the player  and with Andre Ayew injured for four months he is seen as an ideal replacement given his situation with a China move on the horizon.

A club souce told ClaretandHugh: “The reports are correct. We are interested but I can tell you that we now have an inquiry in with Manchester City.

“Bony is off to China in January but it may just appeal to him to come and score some goals for West Ham United before he goes.

“It’s not clear at this stage whether City are ready to loan him – we are waiting for an answer from them.”

  1. Another striker with no pace – we are going to struggle big time with no pace up front in the current system we play. I can see it long balls hoofed up to Carroll, he is taken off and replaced by Bony same thing. I think Bony is a far better player than Carroll but I would just prefer a striker who can score goals in the system we play who has pace which is needed for this role.

    • Johnham did you read the article we want him on a 3 month loan deal, he is off to China in January, he is cover nothing more. He would be a good signing he is quicker than Carroll also so imo there is very little downside to this move.

  2. I am sure if he came and a deal was done to complete a full time deal to either us or China and we pay the right price he will come full time,
    We could probably send a couple to China instead,

  3. Just go & get him & stop p#ssing about pls.I have got to the stage now where I really don’t care what other fans think of players,you can’t please everyone,we just need someone else to put in the striker mix.Yes we have some fans golden child Carroll ( how many times can they repeat the same lines about him daily) but we need a new face now Ayew is out.Im sure we can find a way of incorporating him into our team short term no matter how fast,slow,fat,thin,tall,short or whatever else fans think of him.Sorry,rant over.

  4. I can think of a couple of fans on sites who I’m convinced w@nk themselves dry over Carroll,either that or they have a man crush Bob.

  5. We still have sakho !! Calleri will score goals and then we got Carroll ??
    Our problem is creating chances , !! We got nothing in the middle without payet and lanzini
    If we don’t improve there it don’t matter what striker comes in !
    Get rid of noble and bring in a pacey D/M/f who can play and be creative , we got wingers coming out of our arry ! And can’t feed carol or calleri when on the park ! Complete waste !!
    If we want to go through the middle or the flanks with long balls then we need sakho on the park ,
    Personally I think calleri and sakho could cause problems , both pacey !
    Tore needs to tear one and fenghouli needs to show what he can do ! Antonio will supply crosses from the right tore on the left until lanzini comes back in with payet ,
    We don’t even play it out from defence lately its all hoof ball ?? Tells a tale that , we ain’t got no creativity in the middle !!
    And we still need a C/H and right back ??IMO for what its worth !!!
    Time the side bucked up !! Heard enough like most now ,
    Get on with it and make do until we can field a settled side free of injury’s ? If that’s possible that is ! Lol.

  6. This would be a very good signing. Much better player than Ayew.

    Couple of people on KUMB claiming that Carroll is out for 6-8 weeks. Anyone able to confirm that. Hopefully it’s Bull****.

  7. There’s a rumour ??
    Can just imagine the doodoo hitting the fan if true ?
    We will find out sometime today ?? Lol.

  8. Carroll out for his normal 2 months paid leave,
    You would never have seen that coming ?
    This transfer has become a joke,yes we brought in some good not great players for nada,
    But we have got stuck with the 3 forwards that are not good enough
    We let Tomo go but have not covered our RB position and if Byram gets injured we are royals xxcked
    We are keeping Payet back for a late run to not get relegated,
    Watched Palace Newcastle Watford and other great clubs do better then us in the market,
    But we talked the talk before the season finished and then hid,
    Instead of going out and selling AC Sak and Valencia,
    Buying Bony Wilson Gray Barahino all proven premier players we through our hat in the ring against the big clubs and lost for a load of Foreign players that were to expensive or not proven and got none of them,
    I will still back Slav the 2 Daves and my beloved club but it is really frustrating and at the moment most fans will feel the same,
    Just hope Calleri has big shoulders,

  9. Pretty much bubs ?
    Only a rumour at present ??
    Stratford sewers will be overflowing if true ! Nappys everywhere ???

  10. What’s happening with Carroll Hugh !
    Bit quiet ?
    Gonna be a meltdown I think lol.?

    • I read on the site where suicide watch is advisable that Sean said he would have more on it after the game.It is all being kept under wraps till later.
      Which seems pretty pointless when every paper & internet site is carrying the story lol

  11. The first thing I’m going to look for when I go there is look up and see if there’s any vultures circling the Queenie ? Lol.
    Gonna be fun listening to all the banter in the ground about it ,
    You never know it may be a cunning plan by baldric !
