Now it is Pedro !

Following the failure of the potential car-crash signing of Alberto, Tim Steidten has now switched his attention to the £51 million-rated Flamengo forward Pedro according to reports.

The Daily Mirror have reported that Steidten has stayed on in Brazil to try and secure a deal for the 26 year old forward.

The Brazilian international has a £51million release clause, but the Mirror believes the Irons will not pay that much as that, but will offer some “sweeteners”

I hope we do not fall back on our recent habit of lowballing bids

The subject of our interest has a marvellous record for Flamengo, having scored 94 goals in 197 appearances for the Rio de Janeiro-based club.

A proven goal scorer ,he could quickly become a fan favourite, if he can adapt quickly to life in the Premier League.

They better get a move on ,as time is quickly running out due to the transfer window is closing tomorrow.

    Ha ha, Simon. You say that you hope we do not fall back on our recent habit of lowballing bids. Well I say I hope we don’t end up with another expensive waste of money on a player if Moyes and co have not done their due diligence.

    For instance, will Pedro be ok as a loner striker up front? Will he be ok helping out in defence in a ‘park the bus’ defensive formation and then sprinting up front Jarrod Bowen style to get on the end of a team mate’s cross?

    Surely there is no way West Ham would spend £51million so it would have to be a pretty smart offer to get this one over the line! And the clock is ticking ….

    Let’s be honest we need a LB and striker would be a perfect window . Whatever we need a striker , best pull our finger out !⚒

    I cannot understand why we have not gone in for Gnonto. Suits our system, aggresive, and serious pace.
