Wilfred linked with the Hammers

bonyWest Ham has added Wilfried Bony to their shortlist of strikers the club will work their way through if they cannot land Michy Batshuayi claim the Daily Telegraph

The broadsheet claims Marseille striker Batshuayi is still West Ham’s top summer target, but the Irons will face considerable competition from rivals Spurs.

The paper say Dimitri Payet is helping West Ham to try to convince his old Marseille team-mate Batshuayi to join West Ham with manager Slaven Bilic hoping to meet the player, but the club realise they could still miss out with competition likely to be high.

Manchester City are open to selling £20 million-rated Bony at the end of the season, with new manager Pep Guardiola poised to sign a host of new recruits.West Ham co-owner David Sullivan has previously said he wanted to sign Bony instead of Andy Carroll in the summer of 2013, when the Ivory Coast international joined Swansea City.

Bony earns £100,000-a-week at City, plus a £20,000 game bonus which the Hammers which could be a problem. Bony is the latest name to be linked to the Hammers along with Michy Batshuayi, Christian Benteke, Alexandre Lacazette and Edin Dzeko

  1. Man City seem to wreck careers. Ex-City players seem to take years to recover. I can only think of Jack Rodwell, Scott Sinclair, Joleon Lescott, Wayne Bridge etc, and it wasn’t because they were past their sell-by date. Only Gareth Barry (ugh!) seems to have flourished (in England). Slav does have the Midas touch; if he can get Jelavic looking sharp and scoring great goals at the end, then maybe. Bony WAS fantastic for Swansea…but that was a while back. Even longer was Benteke’s superb season at Villa. Unless they are massively discounted then they are barge-pole jobbies as far as I am concerned!
    Batashuayi would be a dream, but would cost masses. I still like the cut-price diamond in the rough. Much better for team spirit, I reckon, and someone deperate for the opportunity to prove himself: Hungry and keen, rather than bloated and arrogant with reputation baggage…
    I trust the 2 Ds + Slav to sort it…and back up R+L backs….
