Irons duo look at exit door


jonathan-calleri-800x504Jonathon Calleri  will not be offered a permanent West Ham deal at the end of the season and Sofiane Feghouli is another the Irons are ready to offload if they receive the right offer..

Slaven Bilic has been uncertain of Calleri’s future at the club but has had little chance to make a judgement until recent games.

However, we understand the manager has decided that the Argentine will be allowed to return to his parent club having seen him make little impact.

Bilic is keen to bring in a top line striker with Michy Batshuayi his favoured target either on a permanent or 12 month loan deal.

Feghouli is currently injured and has revealed earlier in the season that he is heading for talks on his future at the end of the campaign.

He explained the club had received offers in January but that they had turned them down and that with clubs interested both sides would sit down to talks.

    Callieri will probably go as he is on loan, Feghouli I don’t think we have seen the best of yet, he has had some decent games considering he is playing with an injury, imo it would be harsh to judge him too soon, he is pretty good at holding up the ball and tries hard every game but we do have a lot of players that can play his position on the books.

  • PopRobson says:

    I like Feghouli I think he offers something different.

    Sorry to say Calleri looks out of his depth in the premiership considering he is an Argentina international.Feghouli needs more game time.Remember how Masuaku and Nordveidt were pilloried by many earlier in the season and yet now they are playing in their preferred positions they are very much improved and look good for next season.Trouble today is nobody is given any time to make what can be a huge adjustment.Who knows maybe the same can be said of Calleri who has barely played when compared to Zaza who was given a fair crack I think.

  • Dunlopilo says:

    Callieri often makes the wrong choices (with and without the ball) and lacks the Killer instinct, which is what we absolutely need. Whether he needs to adapt or is in fact too light, I don’t know. He could probably do something better in Spain for instance. Not because la liga is weaker, but because that environment and style of play will suit him better.

    As for Fegh, not a bad player at all, brings something different, but have to agree he plays in a position where 3-4 other players can also play. If you gave me the choice between him and Snotgrass, I would keep him. However, we can probably get a higher transfer fee for him.

  • Carrerageorge says:

    Fergouli has given us more than Snodgrass and was better value.Shame to sell him just because a worse player will be harder to sell.

    I hope we keep Feg,i quite like him actually.Calleri has been my biggest disappointment of the two.When i watched him in the Copa Libertadores & a couple of times for the Argie youngsters he looked pretty good but i aint seen none of that really.
    I still think he will come good even if it aint in the PL.He wont be the first foreign player who dont settle in the PL & he wont be the last,it dont make them automatically shyte players 😃
