Hammers linked with £15m New Zealand star

ChriswoodLeeds United have slapped a £15 million valuation on their striker Chris Wood after West Ham have allegedly shown interest according to reports.

The New Zealand international has been tearing up the Championship this season with his goals firing Garry Monk’s men up to third in the league.

Wood has scored 17 times in 29 appearances this season and netted the winner as Leeds recorded a crucial 1-0 victory over fellow promotion hopefuls Derby County at Elland Road on Friday night.

West Ham are desperate for a new centre forward following Simone Zaza’s exit yesterday and after being rejected in approaches for Brentford forward Scott Hogan and Sunderland’s Jermaine Defoe.

Leeds boss Monk has insisted that none of his first-team players will leave Elland Road in January, with Wood key to the Yorkshire outfit’s hopes of winning promotion back to the Premier League.

  1. I was reading a story in the papers earlier from a chap called Jacob Steinberg tearing us up about our strikers we have signed previously.He was getting too much pleasure from it.
    Jacob Steinberg…now i wonder who he could support.

  2. Read the same article but in fairness he has a point…..The sooner we pay a decent fee for a
    injury free striker the better….we have been sadly missing one for the last few seasons and would have been the ticket to champions league football last year…..we might not have the payet issue now and had more money to but better quality players in the summer….. He might sound like a spud bit hes bang on the money with what he is saying.

  3. Lol LF.The reason we have got so many loan signjngs or stop gaps in the last 2 or 3 years is because our first choice strikers China Doll,Sak The Back & Valencia have spent so much time on the treatment.We have forever been trying to get cover for them.That aint difficult to understand for Jacob is it 😂
    Anyway i have seen many other teams forvever shifting strikers in & out looking for The One on limited budgets.Its ok for the bigger clubs they can sign the elite forwards,everyone else has to try to find a striker who can score a few in the PL but will never have the resources to get the guaranteed scorers.
    Its a something & nothing article really in my opinion,many other clubs are in the same boat 😉
