Report: Hammers linked to three targets

Speculation that the Hammers want Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson this summer was inevitable but as unlikely as it gets.

The Daily Express is the latest ‘paper to run what is obviously a flier along with the well known  Eberechi Eze  situation and adding another whilst adding Wolves Morgan Gibbs-White.

Eze is undoubtedly David Moyes’ number one pick if he can get him but the suggestion that Wilson will be on his way looks pretty well dead in the water.

Quite apart from anything else the Hammers – as we reported exclusively last week – will certainly give Seb Haller another season to see if he can find the form they paid £44 million for whilst he was at Eintracht Frankfurt.

They have no chance of getting anything like that back were they to put him up for sale and are looking for  a cut price and better replacement for Albian Ajeti who has no Hammers future under David Moyes.

Gibbs-White would only be considered at a low fee as an addition to the squad as the Hammers are particularly strong in midfield and were Eze to be added to the mix his chances would  to be severely limited.

  1. Pinning everything on Eze could be a bad move. The young guy has buckets full of talent but needs to add so much more to his game to make him a useful midfielder. His style of play reminds me of Mat Let Tissier, he can float passed opponents with ease, conjure up a magic finish but not the man for a 50/50 or a 40 yd sprint to get back to cover his defence. A good addition to the squad but not a box to box replacement for Noble

  2. Eze for me all day long…….. It’s got “Everything” to do with getting a young talented player Early. Top coaches can get the best out of talented players like Eze (depending on systems), which always leaves the few without the foresight to see their abilities stunned after half a season.
    Can West Ham afford the finished article? Our efforts have proved unsuccessful so far and hopefully, we all now understand how we need to progress and build this club.

  3. A QPR fan here not sure would be any good on the bench , not really his thing but honestly you would do well to get him best player we’ve had here in that position since Stan Bowles , don’t listen to the nonsense he’s lazy etc , a fit and disciplined player and played almost every minute of the last season

    • If he’s as good as Bowlesey he is a must for us. Stand was one of the best i’ve ever seen

    • I remember Stan.
      He was brilliant.
      Like all players in the late 60’s and 70’s who had bags of talent and individual skill like Bowles and Alan Hudson and
      Tony Currie they were not good enough for England.

  4. Just like us to be linked to a player like Callum Wilson who has a history of serious knee injuries. The big boys wouldn’t touch him, which means his price comes right down. Add that to the fact he’s at a relegated club and his price comes down even further. I should think David Sullivan would be all over it. This sounds like a typical West Ham Marquee signing. It’s up there with Andy Carroll and Jack Wilshere.

  5. Eze with diangana back will be fantastic for us. We can then ship out at 3 of yarmo, Anderson, lanzini, wilshere. Then move onto the full backs and another striker, even a loan will do.

  6. Who would we ship them out to, I wonder?

  7. I remember Stan.
    He was brilliant.
    Like all players in the late 60’s and 70’s who had bags of talent and individual skill like Bowles and Alan Hudson and
    Tony Currie they were not good enough for England.
