Report: Hammers join four way scrap for winger

West Ham are tonight claimed to be one of four sides interested in in signing Benfica winger Franco Cervi.

I know it’s only The Sun reporting it but they seem pretty well convinced that ourselves, Brighton, Newcastle and Swansea are all tracking the £20million-rated Argentine.

Cervi is enjoying a decent season with the Portuguese club but like most would love a move to the Premier League where, quite apart from anything else the, the wages are are around 40 per cent higher!

The 23-year-old began his career at Rosario Central in his homeland before joining Benfica two years ago and is contracted to the club until 2022.

He has been a near regular starter and was linked to a move to Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund last year having played Champions League football.

Whilest there may be a kernel of fact in the story i would make more sense if he were right sided – where we have problems – rather than left.

  2. Zabs, Lazini and Cervi…… If it takes two to Tango…. what of three.?

  3. Honestly all these fake news articles about who we are trying to lure to West Ham or being linked with.Yawn.Trust me. 99% of it won’t happen under the current regime.
