Irons talk on striker rumours

Mauro-Zarate-West-Ham-UnitedMauro Zarate still reportedly interests Spanish outfit Malaga although as yet West Ham have had no contact from the club.

The striker has apparently been on the La Liga club’s radar for some weeks but sources inside Upton Park have told ClaretandHugh that whilst they are aware of the rumours there has been no developments at all at this stage.

Our top source told us: “There is nothing from anywhere at the moment although we are of course aware of the rumours.”

There has also been a suggestion from  ClaretandHugh columnist @ExWHUemployee at his site www.westhamway.co.uk that Nikica Jelavic may be on his way to an unnamed foreign club.

Our source told us this morning that the possibility existed but that the chance of it happening stood at about 25 per cent.

The Hammers would be ready to allow the player to move on should he receive a realistic offer but at this stage there is no outcome.

  1. Can’t see anyone coming in for jelly on present form !
    Same goes for zarate really , not a team player ? But will score goals now and then ! IMO both need to be moved on if possible . But a replacement forward will have to be ready to come in !

  2. So, to sum up – no news then!

    • Ya know what. I’vw had enough of you. I was following up on someone’s story as he is a farly trusted source. Once more mate – just once more

      • Ok, maybe I was a bit out of order – but I was only amusing myself and I know you have follow up on stuff even if there is no real substance to the story.

        What would be interseting to know is where Valencia was on Saturday? Not in the squad and nothing about any injury!

        What’s this about an Arsenal midfielder? Can they be serious about Arteta!

  3. If you think it’s no news why do you comment?? Dont like the article, close the page & read something elsewhere…

  4. Nothing to do on a Monday every weeks the same,
    Don’t hold your breath Hugh his mums still waiting for him to eat solid food and dress himself,
    Sorry MM just amusing my self wonder where Tomkins,Ogbonna etc were
    Having a rest for the league you donut
    God give me strength

  5. Still would like to keep Zarate and Jelavic unless we can replace them with good squad players or Lee and Cullen are going to get some playing time and we bring in a good right back,
    No news in Spain about interest from Malaga

  6. It’s just smart arse crap which as a one off is fine but too regular
