Hammers linked with Colombian Ronaldo


ronaldoWest Ham are plotting a move for Luis Muriel, despite the striker signing a new deal at Sampdoria claim the Sun Newspaper. The tabloid says Colombian striker is keen to move on and the Italians were hoping to spark a bidding war this summer for his signature.

The striker recently penned a new deal at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris stadium, with a buy-out clause of £24million which the Sun claims West Ham are prepared to match..

Twenty-six-year-old Muriel scored 11 goals in Serie A last term has been linked with a move to Roma, Inter Milan and Leicester City. Liverpool have also checked in on the forward dubbed “the Colombian Ronaldo”.

Italian reports say that Lazio are also very interested in the striker, who has played 15 times for Columbia, but they fear being priced out of the chase by Premier League clubs with more spending power.

    I guess its the fat Ronaldo they are referring too because he looks nothing like the other two also after the Tore situation last year I am a bit nervous when you see speeded up youtube clips of the player dribbling “at pace”

    Linked ; there we have it again . It’s a really long chain now . So many players in the chain and not a single one sighning . Each link as weak as the last . For a measly 1/2 million we have lost out yet again .
    This is looking like Sullivan & Golds last opportunity to get things sorted . If they can’t then they should say so . This coming season is Make or break for the Hammers . Keep reading we should show patience ; but for how long for crying out loud . The new season is not as far away as some would have you believe . Teams are stealing a March on us right left and centre . Hopefully there is a Master Plan in place . If not then we are looking at a repeat of last season : disaster that it was . Keep building me up Buttercup just to let me down .
