New twist in Sima hunt

West Ham target Abdallah Sima is open to a move into the Premier League but ClaretandHugh has learned the Bundesliga is currently his No 1 choice.

And we also understand that Slavia Prague have now attached a £30 million fee on the player after it was originally believed – and reported here – the Czech outfit wanted £40 million for the teenager.

President Jaroslav Tvrdík denied the price and we have now been told by sources close to the club that £30 million has become a more likely fee.

However, in a covid-hit market that could even fall further to around £25 million as was the case when the club demanded £8 million for Coufal before agreeing to £5.5 million.

A number of Premier League clubs including Arsenal and Everton are believed to be interested but should the player be on the move West Ham, with the presence of Tomas Soucek and Vlad Coufal at the club  would be a big attraction.

  1. Sorry , but on a completely different note after so much speculation regarding GK .
    I wouldn’t be surprised if Moyes goes looking for Ramsdale . Watching Leicester City v Sheffield United , and it has to be said that Ramsdale is a very good , young keeper .
    Could be number two or even No1 in the future .
    Curiously as I write this Leicester have scored .🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    • Agree. Ramsdale would be great addition. Also need to keep Johnstone in mind as he is solid too and WBA will be relegated.
      WBA also had OKAY who is very much an EPL quality, rough and tumble, two-way midfielder. He would be an excellent addition should we make Europe, spelling Rice/Soucek off as needed.
      Finally Ghallager (?sp), on loan from Chelsea is an unlikely call back now that FL is no longer manager. He is very capable.

  2. Wouldn’t want to pay too much for someone that sees us as a stepping stone to a better club. Thomas and Vlad can do without the distraction. COYI
    Troy Deeney would be a perfect fit in our set up at the moment and for the next couple of seasons.
