Fans of West Ham United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which ExWHUemployee discussed the club’s potential interest in Diego Costa.
In his post, ExWHUemployee replied to a question from a West Ham fan asking whether the insider had heard anything regarding the club’s interest in former Atletico Madrid striker, Diego Costa.
In response, ExWHUemployee said that he was ‘currently asking around’ regarding the £9 million-rated free agent, although it ‘wouldn’t surprise’ him to find out that West Ham are interested in the 32-year-old.
Clubs such as Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers have been said to have an interest in the forward, who left Atletico by mutual consent on Tuesday.
In reaction to ExWHUemployee’s tweet, fans of West Ham flocked to have their say on their club’s potential interest in Costa, with some appearing delighted by the news, while others seemed rather less so.
Do you think West Ham should make a move for Costa in January?
So, what exactly did these West Ham United fans have to say in reaction to ExWHUemployee’s Diego Costa claim?
“Would def be a typical West Ham signing. If he had a questionable injury record I’d say he was a dead cert!”
“Would be class for us but feel like his wages would be through the roof”
“He’s got goals in him still.. at this point with the lack of depth a cheeky 1 year contract with higher wages is not much different than bringing back Arnie”
“Would be class for us”
“Better than Haller”
“A one year deal would be very good for us”
“He’d be ideal for us for a year or 2. Involves himself going forward and did well for Chelsea when he was there.”
