  1. Not an impressive curriculum, although nobody had heard about Sakho before he came to West Ham.

    One thing that doesn’t make sense is Lanzini and him playing in the youth team together (which to me means at the same time). There is a four year difference between them….

  2. He is 26,Lanzini 23.Could have easily played in the youth team together if Lanzini was 17 or 18,would make Bou 20 or 21.Anyway it is true they did play together which is probably more factual than this rumour,lol

  3. Lanzini still only looks 12 now 🙂

  4. For every messi there are ten donkeys that come out of south america. Never heard of this guy tbh. A fair number dont seem to be able to cut it in the PL.

  5. Obviously I know nothing about this bloke but seems very risky for 9 mill. Big step up to the PL

  6. Still never work out why we let on we are interested in a player until we have his name on a contract,
    Yes our scouts get seen at a game which 22 players are involved in but why all the early hype,the best player we have signed are done before others step in,
    He does not look like our 20 goals a season £20 million player so unless Sak,AC or Vlancia are leaving then he is a no go

    • Ain’t a lot you can do if some Argentinian paper reports it is there bubs.Next the press here see it & it’s a story.I’m sure it is just guesswork to make a story,lol
