Wahi wants to be an Iron


Wahi wants to be an Iron

French media outlet Foot Mercato are claiming that the Montpellier striker Elye Wahi, wants to go to West Ham after turning down a £25m bid from Chelsea.

The 20 year old had a excellent season scoring 19 goals in Ligue 1 for Montpellier and we do know that teh Hmmers are considering moving into the striker market.

The Irons are apparently keen on the Montpellier man and  may well believe that a switch to the London Stadium would represent the best next move in his career.

The onus is now on West Ham to increase the original bid of £25m in order to bring him to East London.

We do need reinforcements at the top end of the pitch as we let Gianluca Scamacca go this summer, and Michail Antonio has Saudi Arabian interest.

I must say, he does sound a very exciting young player so let’s hope there’s some truth in the story.

    Surely Moyes won’t go for Wahi as he doesn’t fit the profile of :
    a. not having played for Man Utd
    b. not moving towards the end of his career
    c. having a resale value
    d. appearing to know where the net is and how to put the ball in it
    e. not being a defender

    Sorry, please excuse my sarcasm

    This and the Doku story are classic cases of nice but unlikely. I genuinely hope we sign either or both of them also but if there other options are Chelsea and City am not sure how we compete there 😉

    So,what’s the problem? He’s available, he’s young,he’s fast,he’s a striker, he’s not too expensive and most importantly,in spite of Moyes,he wants to join.

    No thanks

    In October 2021, a 22-year old woman filed a legal complaint against Wahi for violence that resulted in her being incapable to work. She claimed that he had punched her in the nose during an evening out at the L’Entrepôt nightclub in Lattes, Hérault, on the night of 12–13 September a month earlier. [13]

    In November 2021, it was revealed by investigative reporter Romain Molina that Wahi had been expelled from Caen’s youth academy for allegedly pressuring secondary school students to masturbate in front of him in the bathrooms

    If you read his Wiki page under ‘controversies’ there’s a couple.of entries as to why the Club might think to steer clear.
