Hammers hope Zab can help land striker target


ZabWEST HAM are continuing to hope that Pablo Zabaleta can help them in their bid to bring City striker Kelechi Iheanacho to the London Stadium.

With just a few details remaining to be tied up between the Manchester City right back and the Hammers it looks near certain the Argentinian will join the club.

He has been close to the young striker in his time at the Etihad becoming something of a mentor figure for the Nigerian international.

Now the Hammers hope that once he is safely on board  he can help persuade 20-year-old to join the Irons.

The Hammers are willing to pay £25m for the striker with Everton also interested.

      Why do we get the players at the end of their careers at West Ham? Yes he would teach Bryam a few things but we seem to be the Final Hurrah club.Just read Rugby Iron’s effort on WHUID. Heavy going.Anyway doesn’t matter what I think it’s what is best for the club.
