West Ham fans take to Twitter to call for Balotelli snub

West Ham fans take to Twitter to call for Balotelli snub

West Ham fans have been left frustrated this month. They were all led to believe that Marko Arnautovic would be leaving the club, however, it’s now come out that the Austrian will be staying, according to Sky Sports. Either way, though, they’ll be hoping they don’t move for Mario Balotelli, as they’ve been linked with him via TuttoMercatoWeb.

The Hammers absolutely love their abrasive forward Marko Arnautovic and will do anything to keep him at the club. If they were to lose out on him, though, the last thing they’d all want is to bring in another bad boy striker in Mario Balotelli. The Italian has had consistent attitude problems throughout his career, and after a dreadful spell at Liverpool, his Premier League chances are pretty much dead.

Balotelli is currently at Nice but looks like he’ll be on his way out of the French club either in this window or for free in the summer. That will likely be why Manuel Pellegrini is being linked with the star, as a free transfer for a player that he formerly worked with at Manchester City is one that he can’t pass up, much as we saw with his recent move for Samir Nasri.

If Balotelli does sign for West Ham then the fans would be furious, although if they’re keeping Arnautovic they shouldn’t have to worry.
