A slightly different line coming out of the Transfer Tavern, and it’s that Barcelona are about to attempt a spot of thieving- how do you feel about that West Ham fans?
Reports from Mundo Deportivo via Sport Witness are suggesting that Barca could be set to swoop for Hammers target Jonathan Calleri, who has long been on the radar of Hammers manager Slaven Bilic.
The Catalonian giants are desperate for another striking option and have made dozens of enquiries regarding forwards this summer.
But West Ham, who were thought to be closing in on the signing of the Deportivo Maldonaldo striker, could now be trumped by Luis Enrique’s side, who naturally boast the pulling power of playing for Barcelona.
The Hammers have tried and failed to sign the Argentinian in the past but work permit issues have prevented a move formalising but this time, Bilic will hope to pip Barcelona to the post.
Our landlord thinks that this would be a major blow for the Hammers, and thinks Calleri has what it takes to excel in the Premier League with Slaven Bilic’s side!
Hammers fans- do you want to see Calleri sign at the Olympic Stadium? Can you outbid the likes of Barcelona? Let us know below!
