Romano: Hammers face busy January transfer window
Football ITK Fabrizio Romano has stated that West Ham will be busy in the January transfer window, although he has fallen short of naming players.
The Italian football journalist has close links to Hammers director of football Tim Steidten and was at the forefront of West Ham transfer news during the summer. Speaking in his column, Romano said, “I expect West Ham to be busy in January as they’re looking at opportunities around, though it’s still too early to say anything about specific names. Nothing is advanced, but the owners and directors are working on it.”
This is in stark contrast to what Claret and Hugh have been told from sources within the club. As recently as two weeks ago, we were informed that West Ham would only be looking to bring on a striker during the January window. We were also told that the signing would most likely be a loan deal rather than an expensive transfer.
