The breaking story at the Transfer Tavern yesterday was the news that the Argentine striker Jonathan Calleri had finally agreed West Ham United. The bar staff here at the Tavern have spent the last few hours trying to piece together how he might fit into the side this season…
The only senior out and out striker other than Calleri at West Ham currently is Andy Carroll. The forward has had his first full pre-season in several years but still looked rather isolated up top in the Hammers opener at Stamford Bridge.
So with this latest addition could he be the perfect partner for the tall Geordie striker? Or is he better suited as a solo striker?
With a new stadium and several big new names at West Ham this summer, our Landlord reckons that the 2016/17 season could be the most successful season yet for The Hammers.
Calleri will no doubt have been brought in to provide competition up top, and if he plays his cards right; he could just find himself leading the West Ham line this season…
We’ve worked with our punters today to build what we think is the best side Slaven Bilic could pick to bring the best out of Calleri this year – West Ham fans; are you a fan of this side?
