Hammers dismiss transfer target as “nonsense”

A newspaper story that the Hammers are interested in Barcelona’s Denis Suarez has this morning been described as’ nonsense’ by a highly placed Hammers source.

According to The Sun the Irons are ready to offer an immediate £20 million for the Barca winger and that this has dented Arsenal’s hopes of signing him.

But the story was greeted with disdain when we put it on our senior source who responded with a one word text answer which simply said “nonsense.”

It has been repeated ad nauseam that the Hammers will be conducting a very quiet window with only Gary Medel =- the Besiktas defensive midfielder – a possible target.

That we should apparently be chasing a £20 million signing at this stage of proceedings is simply ridiculous.

Sadly, however,  the tabloids in particular need to feast on such things during the window,so I guess we need to  prepare ourselves for  a few more, however unlikely, between now and the end of window.

  1. it also states we have made a 20mil offer and he will not come to west ham either and will stay where he is until the summer when Arsenal apparently want to come for him

  2. I wish there was a way for lazy and/or lying journalists, across all platforms, to get rated on the quality of their work, so we could discredit those who spout utter garbage, and honour those who tell the truth and do their homework… There’s absolutely no consequence for these idiots…

  3. Well one consequence might be getting slated on here by you!

    When all is said & done they are not discussing state secrets. It is only football speculation & some would say that anybody who takes seriously anything in comics like The Sun deserves everything that is coming to them. Nobody has to read it, let alone believe any of it.

  4. Yes -agreed. Just can’t see the point of getting upset about
    The Sun talking rubbish. But does no harm to keep pointing out that that is what they do!!
