The West Ham United fans who are competing in a pool tournament this evening in The Transfer Tavern are discussing reports linking the club with a move for a Swedish international striker.
The Sun is reporting that the East London club are plotting an audacious swoop to bring Paris St Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the club during the summer.
West Ham have a list of marquee players they would like to bring to the club next term as they look to stamp a mark on their move to the Olympic Stadium, and Ibrahimovic is reportedly at the top of that list.
The Swede is set to leave France in the summer and he has made no secret of his desire to play in the Premier League, and West Ham are keen to see if they can persuade the striker to mark a new era for their club.
At 34, Ibrahimovic may be viewed as a high risk signing for England’s top clubs, and West Ham have already reportedly begun costing out a deal that will suit both the club and the player.
As for the West Ham fans in The Tavern, they are taking the reports with a pinch of salt and do not see the Swede making the move to the club during the summer months.
