One of the French lads asked for the darts wearing a Paris Saint-Germain shirt and informed the landlord of an article he had seen on the French football website, Le10 Sport.
The article in question suggested that the Hammers were monitoring the situation of the Parisian’s forward Ezequiel Lavezzi, who is out-of-contract in the summer.
The signing of the Argentinean forward would be a real statement of intent from the London-based side ahead of their move to the Olympic Stadium next summer.
One elderly English chap in the corner of the Tavern got up to go to the smoking area and claimed it could be West Ham’s most exciting signing for ten years should boss Slaven Bilic pull the coup off.
West Ham fans… Do you agree with the elderly gentleman? Would Lavezzi really get your juices going? Can he push West Ham onto the next level?
