Speaking to Football Insider, pundit and Sky Sports regular Paul Robinson has dropped a West Ham takeover claim following a development GSB could demand around £600 million to sell the club – going on to say he is ‘sure’ there would be ‘no shortage of takers’ at the right price.
Indeed, sharing a recent development, Football Insider claimed that GSB and co have held discussions with a number of interested parties and are open to selling the Hammers.
However, they’re unlikely to part ways unless their £600m valuation is tabled, with Robinson claiming that while this price tag could be ‘difficult’ to meet in this current climate, West Ham would have ‘no shortage of takers’ for the right deal.
Robinson drops West Ham takeover claim
“Look at what David Moyes has achieved on the budget he has worked on,” explained the pundit to Football Insider.
“Look at the squad he has amassed. They have a fantastic squad, a fantastic stadium and they are sitting pretty in the league.
“In a normal market they would have no trouble finding a buyer but, in the current climate, it could be difficult.
“There is investment in sport though and we saw that with the 49ers increasing their stake at Leeds. There is money out there in sport for the right deals. If there is a deal to be done for West Ham, at the right price, I am sure there would be no shortage of takers.”
Transfer Tavern take
Given how well West Ham have performed this season under Moyes, Robinson could be correct in his verdict that a takeover is potentially possible for the right price.
Time will tell whether reports heat up over talks, but it will certainly be interesting.
