Valencia “chat” despite watertight contract

Valencia_3191610Enner Valencia has been told he will be going nowhere this summer despite murmurings that Chelsea retain an interest.

Valencia was at the centre of transfer speculation in January that he could be on his way to Stamford Bridge but no formal bid was tabled.

However, Upton Park sources have again heard “some agent talk” that the Ecuador striker may be on Jose Mourinho’s summer wanted list.

We were told: “The same people who originated the chat last time – basically agents – are at it again and no doubt it will all start to fizz up when the window gets underway.

“Enner has a watertight contract with the club – there are no escape clauses involved – and he’s going nowhere. He has had a campaign of adjustment and we expect to see the finished article next season.

  1. Valencia could be our hammer of the year next season.. The mans got almost everything in his locker but was easily pushed off the ball this season. Next season he will be stronger and ready to blossom

  2. If Allardyce stays he probably wont even get much game time if AC is fit.He will play his big lump with Sakho.Valencia will be dumped on the bench again.Seems he could be good enough for Mourinho but not good enough for our great manager.

  3. Valencias career goals to games ratio is lower than sakhos and carrolls. Valencia is about 1 in 4 compared to sakho and carroll 1 in 3. Saying that their goals are at different levels. Sakho had a season in the third tier of french football. Then you have to consider age and injuries etc. I believe valencia has more to his game though in many ways and could still prove to be the best of the lot in the long term. Dont forget he played in the world cup, not to mention his wife inconsiderently giving birth at christmas to contend with. And dont even mention the crockery bill.

  4. He’s been ok but hardly set the World alight, but if someone came in with a decent offer he’d be on his way!

  5. I think the jury is still out amongst many fans.Is a shame,he started so well with Sakho at the start of the season but looked like a fish up a tree when Sakho got injured & he ended up playing with Carroll.Still believe he could be a top player though given a fresh start next season with Sakho & Downing or another creative player back behind them not Nolan.Having said that,if BFS is still about he probably wont even be in the starting line-up.

    • Anybody having to play with Carrol will struggle. On his day AC is unplayable but with his glass ankle the team can never settle. We were top draw at the start of the season and up until xmas (AC return). I would sell AC over Valencia, at least we get what we paid for.
