Here’s the odds on us signing our targets


GrayThe bookies – we are told never get it wrong – but when it comes to novelty bets such as where a player is going to end up in the summer transfer market that may not hold true.

We’ve taken a look at the prices of players joining West Ham after days of speculation in the media and this is the way the bookies see it.

We have our own ideas and will give you the best bet as we see it towards the end of this piece.

Sky Bet go 7/1 Michy Batshuayi joing us with Newcastle priced at 9/4. Everton 9/2 and Monaco at 7/1.

Burnley striker Andre Gray is priced at 5/2 to join us with Everton favourites at 2/1, Leicester get a 4/9 quote for Kelechi Iheanachov with ourselves at 9/4 whilst Joe Hart is priced at a crazy 13/8 to find his way to the London Stadium. Newcastle are second favourites at 2/1.

JAVIER HERNANDEZ very short 7/4 to arrive with Manchester United second favourites at 7/1.

The safest bet in there it seems to us is that we will sign Andre Gray as a second or third choice striker and 5/2 looks a decent price.

    Im not a betting man so it is all goes over my head with regard to odds…obviously i understand the fundamentals but thats as far as it goes…

  • bubs says:

    Jimenez,Hernandez,Gray,Wilshere in
    Carroll,Snodgrass,Feggolui,Ayew out
    Should balance the books in cost
    Smalling in
    Collins out ( small loss )
    That would give us a balanced squad with Sak Fletcher and
    Martinez as back up
    Back in the top 7 next season

  • James says:

    I would only take Hernandez of that four…i would also keep ayew..the guy scored goals for us…more than most…
    I see Moaninho is having a whinge about them not getting their targets that he wants…i wonder how many of their fans have steam coming out of their ears or having tantrums..
    Its really not an easy business this transfer market gig…
