Hammers transfer committee at odds over £18M signing

Hammers transfer committee at odds over Osman

Seam Whetstone has alluded to a significant disagreement at the highest echelons of West Ham, indicating that The Hammers might withdraw from the pursuit of one of their key targets.

This potential discord threatens to thwart the club’s efforts to secure a winger, with Director of Football Tim Stiedten keen on Ibrahim Osman as a potential addition. However, West Ham Chairman David Sullivan, influenced by counsel from a reputable agent, may override the transfer, deeming it excessively risky.

A West Ham board advisor expresses serious reservations about the suitability of Ghanaian youngster Ibrahim Osman from FC Nordsjaelland for the Premier League, considering the proposed price tag a massive gamble.

Despite Osman’s ties to the Right to Dream academy alongside Mohammed Kudus and interest from clubs like Brighton and Brentford known for uncovering talent, concerns persist about his unproven nature. Trusted advisors stressed the need for a more established player to make an immediate impact in the second half of the season.

Tim Steidten may be overruled by Sullivan

The 19-year-old winger’s track record, with only four goals and five assists in 39 matches for FC Nordsjaelland, raises doubts about his readiness for the Premier League. David Moyes, known for his cautious approach to integrating new players quickly, may find this deal more aligned with Tim Stiedten’s vision for the forward, creating a notable point of contention within the club.
