Very late Hammers deadline day bid revealed

See the source image

According to ExWHUemployee a very late bid was made by the club to grab a striker in the final hours of deadline day.

The ITK revealed on his patreon account that following  rejection of our move for Darwin Nunez the Hammers moved in on Atalanta’s Colombian front man Duvan Zapata.

However, in keeping with their very late moves for Raphina and Nunez their hopes were smashed.

He claims they had started working on the deal at 7 pm and later believed they had got it done only to be met with disappointment a later.

Sadly though despite their hopes of clinching what is believed to have been a £30 million deal things went very quiet at the Atalanta end and the thing fell through.

Writing on his account the ITK makes it clear that it makes people wonder why the club let it so late in this window to get thigs done.

  1. Don’t you get fed up mate of reporting on stories that never go anywhere. As long as our club is run by these muppets we will never be contenders for anyone. Window after window we have been in for everyone barring the kitchen sink and yet once again nothing happens. They have got lucky with Moyes. He’s got the team playing with bare bones. They don’t feel the need to invest. They just keep taking the sky money and pocket it. Smells like they will be selling up soon and trying to take as much out the club as possible. How can I believe that they found no one better than yarma masuaku and diop. I mean come on do they think we are stupid. Moyes is just a yes man and the suites GSB. Simon Jordan said his pieces yesterday and he was absolutely corrected as much as I hate the guy. I predict a riot as the Kaiser Chiefs said.

    • Don’t hear much from the Kaioser Chiefs either. This is silly stuff which excludes completely the new board member again and the fact that no one has overall control. Still, the old moans are the best moans!

  2. Probably more smoke and mirrors, he should have been the primary target who wants to be second choice…

  3. How stupid is that why at the last moment no chance of getting it done . There was no chance of getting any bid done , Phillips , Nunez , Raphinia are us fans stupid . We tried we failed same old crap. Moyes picks who he wants he doesn’t do the bidding or the deals I’m not convinced the board are not to blame in the failure and hope to god we get CL somehow. Poor window , lack of ambition & I won’t be told we can’t get better than we have that’s rubbish . I’m not blaming Moyes !

    • But it was Moyes who said he would only get better and said publicly there may be no signings. So who is to blame?

      • I wouldn’t trust Sullivan as far as i could throw him.
        I’m not into conspiracy theories but i think there is more than a grain of truth in the stories about them not wanting to spend any money before they can sell the club in a years time.
        Their take on it would be the usual old spiel.
        WE TRIED!
