Irons target on Eurostar heading for talks

kouyateEurostarIntense speculation was underway tonight that Sengalese defender Cheikhou Kouyate could be on his way to West Ham despite denials from an agent.

A Belgian newspaper- Sportwereld – released pictures of the 24 year old allegedly aboard the Eurostar and heading for England.

Kouyate – regularly linked with the Irons – was being accompanied by advisers including Jacques Liechtenstein – on the train amid claims he was on the way to negotiations.

The picture had originally been posted by the player on Instagram along with a photo of the three championship trophies he won with Anderlecht.

Another agent  Tedir Beki had earlier been reported as saying: “Currently there is nothing concrete beyond Valencia’s offer. West Ham could bid, but so far nothing has happened.”

Despite the Valencia link the player has often made it known he wants to advance his career in the Premier League.

  1. But that pic was released 1 or 2 days ago. Did Eurostar break down in the tunnel?

  2. If this is true, it would be very good! Potentially good signings help to improve the team as a whole. To just bye strikers wouldn’t make us a better side. If we do not strengthen all areas, we could end up conceding as many goals as we score! Kouyate, Zarate, Niang a new left back and a midfield replacement for Diame(if he goes), would improve the team and possibly move us into the top 10 next season. I would gladly take that! Coyi!!
