Hammers eye Italian striker

zazaWest Ham have AGAIN been linked with Juventus striker Simone Zaza and apparently Southampton and Everton are also after the striker.

The new report comes from Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio and with Slaven Bilic getting a close up look at the player as an ITV pundit interest may be real.

Slav is keeping an eye on targets whilst doubling up as a pundit and Zaza has been on the club’s radar for several months.

Zaza played a key role in Italy’s 1-0 win over Sweden as it was his assist which resulted in the Italian winner three minutes from time.

Following his Β£13.5m move to Juventus from Sassuolo last summer, Zaza was become the fourth choice striker and is likely to be up for a move.

  1. Is he Any better then what we have,I don’t think so,in my opinion we have already picked up better players then we had last term,
    If Sak goes replace like for like,if Valencia goes we have our new boy so a real number 9 like Bony might be better and we do have Samulsun,
    So replace Emineke and we are about there but not with this Italian we need another defender with the Italian mentality to tackle and keep clean sheets

  2. Matte rates him highly so if our Italian correspondent likes him that works for me lol.

  3. Didn’t do much in the match but considering he has barely played all season he is probably not match fit, will be interesting to see if he gets better each game.

  4. haha… thanks Lemon (Rads? lol)… honestly, as I said before, I like Zaza and I think if Slav is going to buy him, Zaza will be one of our strikers, but not the 20 goal striker we’re looking for… that’s another story. πŸ˜‰

    • Nope not rads,wrong guess Matte.I shall remain a rabid dog now undercover.But not rads πŸ™‚

      • Haha… ok, sorry. Anyway, you’re welcome, Radid Dog πŸ˜‰

        • I am really enjoying The Pants expert analysis of the Euros though.Very thought provoking lol πŸ˜‰

          • I was actually toying with the idea of developing a Bilic blow up doll.I am becoming ever more convinced that some of them want to sleep with him.It is a concern when grown men become so attached to another man lol.I think there is a market on there for the bilic inflatable πŸ™‚
