West Ham’s £12.8 Million Bid Rejected

West Ham United’s bid to sign Corinthians striker Wesley for £12.8 million has been rejected by the Brazilian club, according to Portuguese journalist Jorge Nicola.

Nicola describes Wesley as a player with potential but emphasises his lack of experience at the senior level. With only eight appearances and one goal this season, Wesley’s talent remains to be fully proven.

Despite the rejection, West Ham is expected to return with further offers for the 19-year-old striker in the summer transfer window. A club representative reportedly watched Wesley play three games before the initial bid.

This pursuit comes amidst West Ham’s search for attacking reinforcements. Neither Michail Antonio nor Danny Ings have consistently addressed concerns about the team’s attacking options.

The potential signing of Wesley aligns with Tim Steidten’s transfer strategy of acquiring young players for development. The goal is to integrate them into the first team or sell them for a profit in the future.

In today’s Premier League, where financial fair play regulations are a concern, West Ham’s strategy of buying low and selling high can be crucial for the club’s financial sustainability.

    I won’t be paying attention to talk of potential West Ham inbound transfers until it’s clear who will be manager for next season. For now it’s just trashy media talk. A player that David Moyes would choose to work with may not be someone that the likes of Tuchel, Amorim, Kompany or any of the other ten names being manufactured to provide click bait for bored West Ham fans like me.
    Whatever you think of Moyes, the rubbish written in the past week of who is supposed to be of interest to the club, is disrespectful, considering that Moyes has yet to walk away from a job that he’s had since late December 2019.
