Premier League

West Ham fans on Twitter very pleased with club’s attempt to sign Jamaal Lascelles

West Ham have been chasing a tonne of attacking talent this summer including Javier Pastore, Felipe Anderson and most recently Andriy Yarmolenko to name a few.

And Manuel Pellegrini is also keen to improve his options at the back. And having already added Issa Diop, Ryan Fredericks and Lukasz Fabianski, the Chilean has since lined up a move for £13.5m-rated (via Transfermarkt) Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles.

According to Sky Sports, the Hammers have had a £20m bid rejected for the 24-year-old with Newcastle adamant that their skipper is not for sale.

Lascelles was arguably one of the best central defenders in the Premier League last season as he helped inspire his side to a 10th place finish, and would add much to West Ham’s backline.

The former Nottingham Forest man has shown himself to be a consistent defender and has become invaluable to Newcastle since arriving at St. James’ Park.

Take a look at West Ham supporters’ thoughts on Lascelles below…
