Hammers eye new striker target

AUT vs. TUR 2016-03-29 (267).jpg

West Ham are this morning being reported as holding an interest in Turkish striker Cenk Tosun – along with Spurs.

The 25-year-old was seen last Friday scoring twice in the international team’sย 2-0 win over Finland and whilst Spurs have watched him regularly throughout the season, the Hammers are understood to be on the case.

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic knows the player ย having worked with him whilst serving as manager of Besiktas where Tosun currently plays.

The striker is set to cost in the region of ยฃ17 million and will not require a work permit to play in England as he has EU citizenship.

It is likely that Tosun will leave Turkey. He will be looking to challenge himself by playing for a team in a more competitive League.

  1. How much will everybo cost? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  2. I’ve just You Tubed Everybo and he’s minging. His legs have gone, he has China ankles and he doesn’t track back. At ยฃ20M he is over priced. Let’s buy him!

  3. Maybe he is related to Samassi Abou,a nephew perhaps ๐Ÿ˜‚

  4. Too much news again . Can’t rely on any of it . West Ham are the prime target for Gazumping every season .

  5. Wow is this a Brentwood Gazette exclusive ?

  6. When they said he was scouted for a move to Tottenham they probably mean’t to work in a kebab shop in Green Lanes.
