West Ham United fans have taken to Twitter to express their opinions on the rumours Mario Mandzukic could be set for a stunning move to the London Stadium in January.
West Ham are keen on Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic and could make their move during the January transfer window.

According to the Daily Mirror, West Ham are lining up a January swoop. The 33-year-old was heavily linked with Manchester United this summer, with Romelu Lukaku going to Inter Milan, but that deal seemingly fell through.
Of course, moving for a striker makes total sense as Javier Hernandez joined Sevilla, and Michail Antonio is currently out on the sidelines, while the Hammers also let Marko Arnautovic, Lucas Perez and Andy Carroll leave.
However, the Croatia international has yet to play for Juventus this season and did not make the Italian giants’ Champions League squad.
Here’s how the Hammers fans reacted to the reports…

Seems to go against our recent transfer policy. Loan maybe for cover but can’t see it.

So much for moving away from older players with higher wages

He’s 33 and past it. No thanks.

Can't see this one happening personally with the consistent messages coming out of the club that the days of signing old players looking to live in London and pick up huge wages. I think it'll be a younger striker a bit of an educated gamble or the like which I much prefer.
