West Ham fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are hoping their club can profit from Newcastle’s relegation from the Premier League to the Championship.
According to Squawka, the Hammers are planning to sign the relegated duo of Andros Townsend and Georginio Wijnaldum from Newcastle.
First of all, although Townsend joined the Magpies in January, they had planned for the worst as he has an £8 million release clause, meaning he could escape St James’ Park if they were relegated.
Whilst Newcastle signed Wijnaldum from PSV Eindhoven last summer, and it isn’t clear how much he would cost the Irons but it is understood that Slaven Bilic is a big fan of the Dutchman.
Our resident Hammers fans think this duo would be a fantastic double signing, and feel if they can add someone like Lacazette or Benteke on top of the duo, they could seriously challenge for the Premier League trophy next season!
