Hammers linked to new striker target

West Ham and Arsenal target Henry Onyekuru is reported to have claimed he will only join a club where he is guaranteed first team football next season.

The Irons are keen on the striker but it is extremely unlikely that boss Slaven Bilic will be ready to concede to such a demand.

Meanwhile Sky Sports are again busy finding possible targets for the Hammers and reckon we re interested in signing Max Kruse from Werder Bremen.

It’s reported the 14 times capped Germany international has a ¬£10.4 million release clause. Kruse ¬†scored 15 goals in 23 games during his first season with Bremen.

  1. With reference to Onyekurru – Why wouldn’t he guarantee first team football? Look at Zaza last season, he started before anyone else and he was proper poo. When you’re looking to sign a player, one of the first questions you ask yourself is ” is he as good or better than what we have”? Or “would he improve the squad”? I think the answer to both of those questions is beyond doubt!!
    Max Kruse – A quick look at his stats says he can do it but with both players being priced at 10 mil and under, that’s a very reasonable price for the market in these modern times of transfers.
