West Ham United can land midfield enforcer for just £3m

Raul+MeirelesWe don’t get many hipster Hammers in the Football Transfer Tavern but those that do venture in are happy with this latest rumour.

As according to the Daily Star, the East London outfit have been offered penny farthing lover Raul Meireles for a cut-price deal of £3 million.

Sam Allardyce is apparently fond of the Portuguese midfielder and not just because of his fantastic beard.

The former Bolton Wanderers manager tried signing him in January from current club Fenerbahce.

However the deal was blocked by the Turkish club and in the end West Ham signed Italian midfielder Antonio Nocerino who incidentally had a pretty sweet beard himself!

But according to reports, a return to the Premier League could be back on as Fenerbahce look to reduce their large wage bill.

Meireles is one of the clubs’ highest earners and they are likely to take a major financial hit should the Hammers take him off their hands on the cheap.

West Ham fans. Can you see this deal happening or have West Ham finally learnt by now that signing old players on high wages is not a good thing? Let us know your thoughts below.
