Hammers linked to Benfica winger

ola_john-363836Benfica’s Ola John is the latest  target being checked out by the Irons.

According to Foot Mercato John is expected to leave the club this season and is being courted by the Irons who are reprotedely very keen on the winger.

As reported earlier Sampdoria’s Italian international striker Eder is another target for the club where the signing policy is being solely directed by recruitment director to the board Tony Henry.

With the likes of Kevin Nolan and Carlton Cole on their way out of Upton Park, the Hammers will free up wages although no fee for the left sided player has yet been agreed.

John is tied to Benfica until 2017  would cost around £9 million.

  1. By the end of the summer we will have been linked with 500+ players.Guess they got to get 4 or 5 of them right if they name enough 😉

  2. I’ve seen us linked with a fair few players already but surely its more important to get a decent manager in place first and soon with the likelihood of us starting the season in July? Worrying times. When are we likely to have a manager by do you think?

  3. Might as well have a site westham transfer targets according to there agent .com
    And there all priced around 8 to 10 million,before we get a new winger we need to shift Jarvis,with Alfitano,Valencia and Downing that can cover that roll a right back and creative
    Mid fielder are more important and there are plenty of players like this one around at the moment Free,last week one from Marseille the Ukranien we have been linked with for 2 years ( sorry can’t remember there name )
    There is only so much money available and the new manager must have some say a least
    This will confuse the spuds

  4. No thanks. Not a top class player. We do not need any more Matt Jarvis Nobody wants him so nor do we.
