West Ham United: Mandzukic transfer rumour generates fan reaction - West Ham News

West Ham United were heavily linked to forward Josh King over the transfer window. A move never came to fruition, and recent reports have suggested that Mario Mandzukic is another attacker the club were interested in.

According to Italian sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, and tweeted out by @whufc_news, the Croatian forward turned down a move to West Ham on a free transfer during the transfer window.

The 34 year-old has a lot of experience and quality as he has 197 goals throughout his career (Transfermarkt) and also has won the Champions League.

He is highly rated, with his former manager Massimiliano Allegri piling praise on him in the past. He said: “Mario is a key player. His combination of technical and physical attributes make him an extraordinary player.”
