Hammers draw up their lists for final signings

Moussa Marega does not figure highly on the manager’s list of striker targets although the club do hold a “tiny interest” in the Porto front man.

The general media have been touting the 27 year old as a target for the past couple of weeks but the reality is he is one of five front men on the manager’s list.

As reported earlier Pellegrini believes that once he has completed two more signings he will have a squad which can seriously compete with the best in the PL.

The current asking price is reported as being around £22 million but it must be highly unlikely the club wil pursue him with any vigour aftetr we were told there is “just a tiny interest.”

The club will do all they can to bring in a front man to boost Pellegrini’s options and the midfielder he is looking for but names are again being kept well under wraps.

We were told: “There are five possibilities on each position and we will do our best to get what the manager needs.”

  1. Great to hear but we must have real strength in depth so I really really really hope we keep Antonio. I believe he is different to what we have in Anderson and Yarmolenko and I honestly think he will start more games than not – he is that good.

  2. Sorry Johnham but as much as I like Antonio’s raw pace and effort I have serious doubts about quality. As a winger he’s not that good unless he has a free run to get past a defender and his first touch is awful as Stanley Matthews once said of a player he can trap it further than I can kick it. I’m not so sure he’s ever been the same since getting injured. Having said that I’ll gladly be proven wrong.
    As for the final pieces of the jigsaw the Drinkwater rumour is rearing it’s head again and could be a good loan option and I think a striker maybe as yet unnamed could be the last one.
    No matter what I think we have a vastly improved squad and can’t wait for the season to start.

  3. Lucas Perez from Arsenal is supposedly available for £7m not a bad shout imho, drinkwater from Chelsea also or Ruben Loftus Cheek if he is available.

  4. I’d like to see Hugill, Snodgrass and a little cash swapped for Grealish.

  5. The refreshing thing is that there is a list rather a last minute panic. Not only are we having the best transfer window I can ever remember but it’s also being done in the most professional manner I’ve known for years.
