Claret and Hugh has learned this afternoon that reports linking Bertrand Traore with the club are some way wide of the mark.
We reported this morning that reports had emerged in the general media claiming that the club were looking seriously in the youngster direction.
He enjoyed a great season with Ajax on loan but the Hammers have revealed to us exclusively that the youngster is not the “out and out striker the club wants.
And although Slaven Bilic would sign a speedy winger as a replacement for either Robert Snodgrass or Sofiane Feghouli they are not interested sufficiently at the £17 million be quoted by Chelsea.
Speaking to CandH a few minutes ago a top club insider revealed: “We don’t see him as We think hes not a genuine No 9 and based JUST on Dutch form too expensive at that sort of price. “Should a revised price be offered we may look at it again.”
