West Ham continue to be linked with players – the latest being Everton’s Kevin Mirallas.
His is the latest name presented in the nationals as a target for the player although given the uncertainty surrounding our managerial situation it’s difficult to be OTT about such links.
The report claims the Irons are ready to challenge Spurs for the player after the north Londoners had an enquiry knocked back last season.
Claiming we will join the chase at the end of the season, the report adds we are ready to challenge for the 27 year old as we look to ” invest heavily” in our attack in the summer.
Whilst it’s true we will be looking for a back up striker given that Carlton Cole will be on his way there is no suggestion from inside the club of “heavy investment” in the front line.
We were told: “It’s a little premature to be putting specific names in the frame anyway – more pressing is where the club are going at the back with Alex Song and Carl Jenkinson.
“The managerial situation will also be decided before players may or may not come onto the radar.”
