Valencia & Sakho linked in bizarre swap deals

sakhoWest Ham strikers Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho have been linked in bizarre swap deals according to ITK Thorshammer on Irons Internet forum KUMB.com

Thor claims West Ham looked at a straight swap between West Brom’s Berahino and Diafra Sakho but nothing happened because Albion are said to value Berahino at £20m while West Ham value Sakho at £15m.

He goes on to claim Manchester City approached West Ham about swapping Wilfred Bony for Enner Valencia but says the Hammers knocked back the offer.

City purchased Bony for £25m plus up to £3m of add ons as revealed by the football leaks website after the contract was leaked online back in March. City paid £9m up front, plus £5m in VAT due on the total transfer. They paid Swansea a further £8m in January 2016 and are due to Swansea a further £8m in January 2017.  Bony is thought to command a £100,000 per week salary at City.

In the early hours of this morning Thorshammer posted the following on KUMB.com

“Berahino has offers from Palace ,Watford and Stoke. West ham looked at a swap but nothing happened due to a difference in valuation between clubs regarding him/Sakho. City asked about swapping Valencia for Bony but were knocked back seems like Pep prefers pace over power”

  1. So we give WBA £5 million and end up with Bony and Barahino
    What’s not good about that deal,
    I think Slav would have jumped at that deal so cant believe it

  2. I know it’s silly season but why on earth would Pep want Valencia, I just can’t see it.

  3. Don’t care as long as we get Bony for a straight swap,

  4. Valencia for bony….berahino plus 5m for sakho? …..YES PLEASE WITH SUGAR ON TOP…. Berahino and bony have goals in them ….city paid 25m for bony a season or 2 ago and 12 months ago and spurs offered 25m for berahino… Thats a 50m strike force a year ago and they havent lost it in 12 months ….berahino ,Carroll,bony and lacazette in front of payet , lanzini, feghouli and antonio ….that would be a fearsome attacking unit

  5. I personally don’t believe this story – Valencia for Bony – but if it’s true and we have turned it down then I can only believe that we want cash for Valencia as we have enough strikers lined up to come to West Ham already !
