West Ham fans were in high spirits in the Transfer Tavern over the weekend following their side’s victory over Swansea City.
The East London outfit slipped back into the Premier League’s bottom three last weekend after going down 3-2 at home to Tottenham, but Slaven Bilic’s men responded with a last-gasp 1-0 success over Paul Clement’s Swans, with Diafra Sakho getting the 90th minute winner.
That three points lifted the Hammers up to 15th in the table and also means that they have lost just one of their last five matches in all competitions, a run which has somewhat eased the pressure on manager Bilic, whose role had come into question following a run of three defeats to begin the season.
Nonetheless, several of our resident West Ham fans are now looking up the Premier League table, and as such will be intrigued by a recent report from The Gambling Times, which suggests that their club are one of four keeping tabs on Theo Walcott’s situation at Arsenal.
The 28-year-old moved to the North London outfit back in 2006 but has found gametime hard to come by in the last 12 months or so, with three substitute appearances in the Premier League this time round indicative of his current plight at the Emirates Stadium.
And it seems that he’s got until January to try and nail down a place in Arsene Wenger’s side, with the Gunners reportedly ready to sell should he remain on the peripheries.
And West Ham are one of four teams, alongside Crystal Palace, Everton, and Southampton, who are reportedly interested in the England star, news which stimulated quite a response from Hammers supporters on Twitter.
And it’s fair to say that they are split about a possible deal for the forward…

Be crazy not to go for him, just look at his goals scored. More than any of our strikers achieve in a season

Sorry, not a fan, don’t want him. Want a new manager.

He would be a great signing, pace and an eye for goal. Bye bye Sakho.

He’s so underrated, was Arsenal’s main goal scorer last season and yet they still drop him.

Take Antonio over Walcott any day – another overpriced Gooner reject ( Suker/Brady/Wright/Robson/Radford – all past their best)
