There appears to be some happy Hammers in the Football Transfer Tavern evening and before all can be revealed they start singing ‘Forever Blowing Bubbles’ which causes quite a commotion.
After their drunken rendition of their famous song comes to an end, I venture over the find out what the good news regards the club could be.
One punter explains that Mirror Football has suggested that West Ham are planning to make a surprise move for former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan in the January transfer window.
The 34-year-old Uruguayan veteran forward is currently back in South America, impressing with Internacional in Brazil but he could be ready for one final European adventure.
Hammers boss Sam Allardyce is worried that star summer signing Andy Carroll wont return from injury until late in the season and the club have seriously struggled for goals in his absence.
Forlan, who previously spent two years at Old Trafford, would add a wealth of experience to the Hammers’ side and in a World Cup season, could be eager to play at the highest level.
We wait with baited breath to hear any developments on this intriguing rumour as Allardyce looks for a new striker when the window opens in January.
Do the Irons really stand any chance of landing the top class striker? Let us know your thoughts below.
