West Ham are ready to launch a bid of around £5 million for Hull City left back Andy Robertson.
Reports claiming we have launched a £7 million bid are untrue but our regular source admitted that the club were likely to go in at £5 million “soon.”
Sky Sports are claiming the bid has been made but whilst the Irons admit big interest the formal offer is still on the back burner.
The Hammers have been keen on the full back for a long turn but failed to sign him when he was with Dundee United ahead of the move for Aaron Cresswell.
Now they are back in and believe they can do a deal with City – from who Steve Bruce recently resigned because the club would not back him in the transfer market.
The club are keen to moves some players on ahead of appointing a new Manager and the Hammers will be hoping to tie up a quick deal.
We understand the Hammers moved in on Robertson after Norwich City told them they wanted £12 million for Robbie Brady to which our source responded: “That was far too much for a back-up player.”
