Irons looking at Dec replacement

Ex has also confirmed that the Irons are keen to sign the 27 year old away from the clutches of Borussia Dortmund who are currently favourites for his signature

We face stiff competition from the likes of Dortmund who the player is reported to prefer although this isn’t confirmed,”

“West Ham have made their interest in the player known and further talks are expected.”

 He also gives an update on Gianlucca Scamacca who many would have thought would be leaving in the summer. Apparently, this not the case as the Irons are looking to keep him on for another season and possibly convert Max Cornet into a supporting striking option.

Nevertheless, the club will still consider the sale of Scamacca should we recoup the £30 odd million outlay made last summer

    I’m unconvinced Alvarez is the man West Ham have targeted, maybe misdirection?
    He doesn’t really fit the young and hungry profile and not Premiership experienced.

    Scamacca on the other hand is the perfect trade opportunity to bring Tammy Abraham back to London. Similar profiles, if it wasn’t for his recent ACL injury, I would have expected the rumour mill to be swinging with that trade.

    Scamacca’s leaving – no he’s staying – he’s leaving – no he’s staying! It’s no wonder us readers get sick of all this rumour mongering across the media. Anyway, it makes sense to keep him and utilise what we already have, like Cornet and Paqueta for support. It’s down to Moyse to get his act together!

    Alvarez is only 25 and looks a far better player than Phillips. Phillips would be a terrible sigming, over rated, passes sideways and backwards, not strong defensively, injury prone and is 27 going on 28 no resale value. If Moyes has any notions here the board need to stop them. I wud prefer Palinho too over ward prowse. I think we need to go after Johnson from Forest.

  • Hammeroo says:

    Agree with johnham1 yet again. I wouldn’t mind Gallagher from Chelsea if I were doing a spot of window shopping. Definitely Harvey Barnes from Leicester, if he hasn’t already been snapped up. You gotta be fast if you wanna beat the Villains!
