Report: Barca striker on Irons radar

elhadBarcelona front man Munir El Haddadi is reportedly being chased by three Premier League clubs including West Ham.

Southampton and Palace are named as rivals to the Irons in the Spanish newspaper Sport – which is the Spanish equivalent to The Sun!

El Haddadi spent last season on loan at Valencia after failing to impress at Barca after a bright start.

Now his club want around £10 million for the forward, who scored six goals and added three assists last term.

But the Prem trio would only want to pay up to £8m.

Should he decide to stay with the La Liga giants he will find it hard to find game time, with Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar the established front three.

New boss Ernesto Valverde has also moved to bring back Gerard Deulofeu from Everton.

  1. Munir must surely be a consideration!

    • Another player on Iron’s radar that ends up going off the screen.Same old,same old….

      • Pretty much like your comment then.
        Media link another player & you are already negative towards the club

        • I’m not negative towards the club as such per se. It seems to me a lack of resolve to spend what is necessary to get the top calibre players we need.If that is being negative so be it.

        • Can’t see anything negative in Roman’s comment . He is only stating the truth as it stands .

  2. its more a lack of pennies holding us back tbh

    • Unfortunately I think you’re probably right Jimbo.
      The problem as I see it is, with the huge amount of money coming into the club from Sky/BT, coupled with our ‘deal of the century’ athl, sorry, football stadium, if we’re currently not reducing the debt then when are we going to have the money to compete, not only with those perceived to be above us, but also our more immediate competitors?
      I’m not knocking SuGo by the way, but just wonder if the game has suddenly got a bit too ‘big’ for them financially?!?

  3. Seems to me that every player that appears on the radar passes over the horizon and off the screen . A bigger radar won’t work either , the horizon is still the horizon .
    Getting a bit silly now , goalkeeper instead of striker and nobody else . Who we end up with is anyone’s guess . But it doesn’t look as if he will be expensive .

    • Or all the rumours could actually just be rumours and no ones got any bleeding idea whatsoever who we’re actually after 😀 Talking of which I’ve just bumped into Neymar, Suarez and Ronaldo buying the new replica shirt and shin pad set in Westfield so it must mean there joining 😆😆

  4. Theres nothing wrong with getting other players in without it interfering with the ‘Striker’ budget.

  5. He can play as a striker has scored 15 goals up front and 8 on left and 10 on RW. 5 assists up front 3 on left and 12 on right.
    I like him. Is obviously hard to break in MSN.
    But if we go for a youngster I Love Keita Balde he is Two footed which is something we could use in our line up tricky fro defenders. And had 16 goals and 3 assists last season for Lazio and plays LW which we need but can play up front and on right.
    With £17m thought to opening conversion and £25m max had would have him here over any other LWs we have looked at. He is 22 has sell on Value which Marko and Tadics value will go down. And His Intl teamatea with Kouyate and Sahko

  6. Is this story being reported / shown anywhere elese?
