Hammers talk on Gignac

Gignac_ss_lazio_newsClaims that West Ham are close to signing Marseilles striker Andre-Pierre Gignac are wide of the mark although the club admit “he’s a nice player.”

It’s no coincidence that at a time when Marcelo Bielsa is one of those that are on the managerial wanted list that the 29 year old should be linked with the club.

He is a regular on the rumour grapevine but this morning although this morning a source opened up to some extent on the player.

He has hit 20 goals in 35 appearances in all competitions this term and has also attracted the attention of some of Europe’s top clubs.

Our source told us: “We’ve had no contact with him, but hes a nice player. As we understand it there is a big chance he will stay there. We understand too that West Bromwich Albion are keen on him.”

  1. He’s the last of my list… not Carroll’s clone, but close to being,,, he’s not young, he’s not cheap and he would be the BFS’ ideal striker… that’s not a good sign.


  2. Nah,he cant be Carrolls clone Matte,he has played 35 games this season 😀

  3. If Bielsa is the next manager, Gignac could be an acceptable solution (even if I don’t like him so much). But not with BFS, he would use him like Carroll.

  4. Seems he has a body that doesnt fall apart everytime he jumps though.He plays more matches in one season than Carroll does in 3,lol 😉

  5. haven’t we tried signing this guy like 3 times now,stinks of fat sam staying on at the end of the season….

  6. Not sure he will fit our new approach if BFS GOES but better thanCole I think,
    There’s go to be better out there with more skill sooner see Young Lee given a chance.

  7. Young Lee? I didn’t know we had signed a Chinese player, any good is he? 😉

  8. No that’s our manager Tu Stent,
    We have a captain No Lan or No Show,
    Ha Ha Ha brilliant Whambam,
    Lee has a rare talent of knowing where the net is and every team he has played for he has delivered the goals you don’t have to be brilliant the likes of Greaves and Lineker were never great at envy thing other then knowing where to be at the right time,
