West Ham United are contemplating a surprising reunion with a familiar face – former Premier League star Wilfred Zaha. According to Turkish outlet Fotospor, the Hammers are mulling a £10 million swoop for the Ivorian forward.

This potential move marks a possible shift in West Ham’s transfer strategy.While a surprising amount of iconic Premier League players have played for West Ham, the majority of them played for them at the end of their career. Pablo Zabaleta, Ian Wright and Patrice Evra are just a few examples of this, but it seems like the Hammers are still looking to implement this strategy despite their new recruitment set up.

Zaha’s performance at Galatasaray, with 15 goal contributions in 42 appearances, demonstrates he still has plenty to offer. At a mere £10 million, he appears to be a bargain, bringing experience and depth to the West Ham squad.

The biggest hurdle could be Zaha’s current salary at Galatasaray. West Ham would need to meet or surpass his existing wage demands, potentially disrupting their financial structure.

The potential signing of Zaha presents West Ham with a complex decision. His experience and potential on-field impact are undeniable, especially for the reported price tag. However, his wage demands require careful consideration to ensure the deal remains financially sound.

    He always gave us trouble when he played for Palace so could be worth a punt.
    As usual it’s not the transfer fee it’s the wage demands

    For 10 million it is worth a try.
