Veteran striker offered to West Ham

Agents have offered David Moyes the option of signing AS Roma striker Edin Dzeko on loan his search for a striker.

According to Corriere dello Sport, an intermediary has put forward Dzeko’s services to West Ham as a potential loan option after the striker a massive fall-out with Giallorossi boss Paulo Fonseca who stripped him of the captain’s armband.

The 34-year-old had scored seven goals in 15 Serie A appearances this season before his omission from Saturday’s 4-3 win over Spezia.

Apart from his age, the real challenge would be Dzeko’s wages at a reported £120,000 per week as well as playing second fiddle to Michail Antonio as a backup striker.

The former Manchester City striker has been linked with a move to West Ham for almost three years now with his name cropping in most transfer windows.

In 2019 under the reign of Manuel Pellegrini senior sources closes to the club told Claret and Hugh “There is no interest – we are looking at other targets. The stories today are incorrect.”

  1. No future in it. Better to buy a young striker like Armstrong or Toney from the championship on much lower wages. They would be an asset rather than a liability financially speaking.

  2. I believe we need one player whether on loan or permanent. If we cannot buy what we want then loan makes complete sense. The important thing is the signing has got to be being right. Let me explain, signing someone like the Man Untied left back Williams makes no sense. He cant even get into their team so why should he be good enough for us. I believe Johnson is a better player and by signing him even on loan could have a negative impact on the squad. Likewise I thought our top 4 yesterday were excellent and we have Mido, Antonio and Bowen to add to these 4. I believe Yarmo is a better no 9 then the Celtic player for us at the moment so I would be happy with Antonio, Yarmo and Mido as our front 3 options if we cannot get a top player in on loan or permanently. This signing is key and if we can get the right player it could be a terrific season, I would worry if we started to sign players like Williams, Lingard, and I just look at Eduardo and he is certainly not another Arne or Antonio.
