Manchester United and Arsenal scout Hammer


A report in the Swedish media has suggested a large number of clubs have been scouting Hammer Sead Hasanović currently on loan to IFK Norrköping

The Swedish website fotbollskanalen said that scouts from Manchester United, Arsenal, Parma, Stuttgart,Milan,
Ghent, Glasgow Rangers, Freiburg, Iceland’s national team (Erik Hamrén), Antwerp, Rapid Vienna,
Benfica, Utrecht, Ajax, Groningen, Zwolle, Holstein Kiel and Fehervar were all in attendance to watch the youngster and one other.

Hasanović rounded off the Swedish Allsvenskan season in November with a final-day goal for IFK Norrkoping, as one of six West Ham United loanees in action this weekend. Hasanović joined IFK Norrkoping on an 18-month loan deal in January 2019 recording six goals and eight assists in 29 Allsvenskan appearances last season.

The 20-year-old was part of a deal with an agent that smoothed the way to land Marko Arnautovic to become  a Hammer in 2017. The Montenegro player is reported to be one of the highest-paid Academy players rumoured to be earning £15,000 per week.  Football agent Will Salthouse is said to have been involved in the double deal that bought both Arnautiovic and Hasanović to West Ham.

    Not quite sure what to say, but if clubs were looking to steal a bargain from us……. NOW, would be the best time for it, as this club is in Total Dissaray right now and we could even be heading for meltdown.
    Step right up, Bargains to be had!

    Why does everyone else rate our under 23’s and loaned out players,but us.This is crazy.

  • Ken says:

    Unbelievable that we are in such a mess with vital games coming up yet 18 clubs are scouting a player who we let go out on loan! Surely there must be a recall in the loan agreement to bring him back and help us fight relegation? Then again this is West Ham and only our so called Managers can loan out players while keeping players who clearly are not Premiership standard. .You only have to see Nathan Holland’s goal against Newcastle then wonder why our Under 23’s are not give more first team opportunities.
