The West Ham United fans are competing in a pool tournament in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports linking the club with a new striker.
The Telegraph is reporting that the Premier League side are interested in bringing Manchester City striker Wilfried Bony to the club should they fail in their bid to land Michy Batshuayi.
Manchester City are open to the idea of moving Bony on as the club is looking to revitalise its squad for next season under new manager Pep Guardiola.
Bony has been wanted by the East London club for some time, with co-owner David Sullivan revealing that he want the Ivory Coast striker to join the club ahead of his move to former club Swansea City.
West Ham would have to be willing to meet City’s valuation of £20 million if any deal was to happen as they would be making around a £10 million loss for a player they signed in January of 2014.
The West Ham fans in The Tavern are delighted to be linked with a player of Bony’s stature and would love to see him lead the line at the Olympic Stadium at the start of next season.
Would Bony be an upgrade on West Ham’s current striking options? Let us know in the comments below!
