Marega? Hammers set to keep balls in the air

West Ham are again being linked with a move for Porto striker Moussa Marega although the stories emerging probably owe more to a lack of known other targets than an entirely accurate appraisal..

The 28 year old has been mentioned in the past but slipped off the radar as the Maxi Gomez link gathered pace before the  the Celta Vigo player’s uncertainty over a move from Spain.

Sean has posted details of the story reported in A Bolo where it is also claimed he now has an agreement in place with his club which will allow him to leave this summer.

However, the Hammers remain locked in talks for Gomez and will keep all balls in the air as they bid to make room in the wage bill for new arrivals.

With just Edmilson Fernandez and Lucas Perez gone they have £100k additional funds available and are unlikely to make major moves for players until Chicharito and others depart given they are also chasing West Brom’s Salamom Rondon.

We shall of course be checking out the Marega story with our own sources and will bring news once we get their feedback.

  1. Not a fan. He reminds me of a Heskey/Wanchope hybrid. A new Andy Carroll.
    Gets through, but no one knows how, and likes to shoot straight at the keeper.

    Was hoping we would have someone sexier to compliment our midfield.

    Preferred the sound of the french teen or something similar.

    • You’re right Whitey, French teens are way sexier than that Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink lookalike.

      Joking aside, given the price is 30+ million, I’d rather we spent that on somebody 5 years younger.
