Lacazette says “No” to us – fans react

ClaretandHugh was the first site to break the news today that the chase for Alexandre Lacazette is dead.
We were told by a senior insider that he has made it 100% clear through his agent that he has no interest in joining us.
Here’s how CandH Facebook Forum members at reacted to the news.
LacazetteO Moving on then! Are there any other good strikers that we’re linked with at present?
O Pity really, he would have been great for us, but no need for half-heartedness in a big project like ours, and just have to move on. There will be other strikers.
O Got to be honest I never really expected him to join us. Surprised we haven’t shown more interest in Dzeko or Bony.
O His loss.

 O Agree with Ray ⬆️ I like Dzeko always scored when he had a run of games for Man City.

O Don’t wanna come to WH-don’t want him!
Move on.👍

O Of all the strikers we have been linked with he has the best goal ratio, while also fitting the age profile and type of striker we want

O Shame but at least we know where we stand now and have plenty of time to attract others. I’m a little gutted as I thought he would have been the very best option of all those spoke about.

O Well we already knew he wouldn’t come as he wanted to play champions league football. No surprise there. We move on to new targets.

O Fair enough. Let’s move on now. I’m sure we all only really want players that really want to play for us. 

O Well poop….welcome Batshuayi.

        There’s no secret there Winslow ! Lol,
        Heard enough about transfers , all Ott crapp ! So treat it with a bit of humour !
        It happens when it happens ! Personally I would give sakho another year with carol and a new boy on board and let Valencia go !
        A c/h a r/b and a assassin in m/f , spuds have 2 now , dembele and wanyama , that’s the route spuds are going down , better get the ankle pads out ! To be fair all successfull clubs has a animal or 2on board ? Fact ?.

    Who cares Batmans on his way and he was first choice,
    Now we need a couple more to cover Sak and Enner leaving if they do,

    I think we may have dodged a bullet with lacazette…..could you imagine us signing lacazette for 35m + and him getting injured or just not settling well to the rigours of the premier league? …as much as i liked the thought of having him up top for us i was always a little apprehensive about the money we would have to spend. Westham are not on the level where we could spend 30/40m and write it off like chelsea did with torres if it didnt work out. Spending that much on a player would affect our whole budget and take away from strengthening other areas of the squad…..imho …ive never been a fan of putting all your eggs in one basket …look how carroll turned out even though this season he has redeemed himself a little we all expected more …
