Theo Walcott is the latest superstar on a glistening list of players to be linked with a summer move to West Ham United, and our Hammers fans here in the Transfer Tavern are loving it!
Ligue 1’s Alexandre Lacazette and Michy Batshuayi, Everton’s Romelu Lukaku and Inter striker Mauro Icardi are just a few of the big names in that glorious catalogue of Europe’s elite, to find themselves linked with a switch to the West London side come the end of the season.
While it unlikely that the Hammers will secure the signatures of all of the above – mostly due to the fact they are all forwards – the West Ham loyals at the Tavern are excited to see their beloved club linked with some of the hottest talents in world football.
Slaven Bilic’s side have had a terrific season ahead of their summer switch to the Olympic Stadium, and play their final ever game at the Boleyn Ground this evening as they host Manchester United in what will be a emotional night for the club.
Under the Croatian, West Ham are still within reach of their best Premier League finish since 1998/99, where the club finished 5th with former boss Harry Redknapp.
A win in their ultimate game at the Boleyn tonight, followed by a final day win at Stoke could see the Iron’s beat United to 5th place and secure Europa League football next season – providing other results go their way.
With a new 60,000 capacity stadium, the promise of European football and an excellent manager at the helm, West Ham will be an attractive option for many this summer, and could see an influx of players to strengthen their already impressive squad.
So just who could make the switch to the Olympic Stadium this coming transfer window?
Our landlord has complied a list of FIVE players who could follow Walcott and Lacazette to West Ham in the summer…..
