Irons update Zaza interest

Simone_ZazaWest Ham are no closer to bring in Juventus striker Simone Zaza.

The player was named as a possible loan target on the official site last week by the club’s amusingly dubbed ‘Boleyn Insider.’

And given that if the club itself doesn’t know whois on the radar it can be taken as read that this particular ITK had it right when putting him up as a target.

At the time he wrote: “My understanding is that Zaza is a player the club greatly admire and they tried to sign him last summer. He scored again on Wednesday night and the Club might try something again this month.”

However, this morning our top source inside the club made it clear the club are still some distance from making the deal happen.

He said: “We are no closer. The position is as it has been all year – somebody has to go in order to release wages for the player.”

There had been some crazy rumours doing the rounds that Juve were ready to pay the player’s wages in order for him to get game time.

But ClaretandHugh was told: “In our dreams. That simply isn’t going to happen – a player will need to leave for the deal to happen.”

  1. Why is it we seem to be the only ones who talk about the Financial Fair Play restrictions? I remember hearing QPR and Man C getting fined huge amounts but we’re the fines ever paid and just how serious do teams take it? Just asking. Hugh if you can shed any light I for one would appreciate it.

  2. This player has rejected all attempts to buy him and is not interested in coming to us,
    If we are going to bring in better players then we should be looking at Gray of Burnley
    Who we should have brought in the first place and Wilson of Bournemouth,
    If we are really going to go big then beat the Spuds to Berihino of WBA but that’s loads of money the others on loan are no better then we have,
    Was that the fair play money just for Blatter and Co as a private pension scheme ?

  3. Samuelson is a tad special imo, bit like Morrison only difference being is he has a brain!
    get him back for the next season and i mean the pre season training inclusive, Payet, Lanzini and Sam the man, what a midfield!!
