Irons in Euro right back talks

JenkWest Ham are conducting a global search for their next right back!

With Arsenal wanting a ridiculous £15 million for Carl Jenkinson, the club has contacted several agents who are looking for a right sided defender who will cost the club no more than £10 million next summer.

And although no names have been divulged, we understand from one of them that talks are currently in progress with Serie A and La Liga clubs as the Irons look to close in on “two attractive options.”

We were told: “It’s the major issue on the club’s agenda at the moment and contrary to what many believe, these things aren’t organised in the last few days of the transfer window.

“The club are particularly interested in two players – one of whom is in Italy and the other in Spain. They are also looking keenly at the French market with which they have become very familiar  over the last two summers.

“Jenkinson is simply not an option, the fee is way way our there and wrong. There are equally good options available at much less in Europe – even among quality clubs. ”
