The club’s in house ‘In The Know’ insider has rubbished claims that West Ham are interested in Inter Milan midfielder Zdravko Kuzmanovic or Roma striker Mattia Destro touted by the media in recent days.
Speaking on his regular Boleyn Insider column the mystery ITK says:
“West Ham have also been linked with a move for Inter Milan midfielder Zdravko Kuzmanovic who has also attracted interest from other Premier League clubs.But my sources have told me that the east London club were never in the market to sign the Serbia international.”
“There have also been reports linking Roma striker Mattia Destro with a move to the Boleyn Ground but I believe that is just speculation and the Club will continue to work hard in their attempts to strengthen the squad”
The insider does confirm the club are now confident of finalising a deal in the next 72 hours and that it will be the first eight figure signing of the summer which we all know is Dimitri Payet.
