West Ham United fans are eager to sign Chris Wood from Burnley after they were linked with a move for the 29-year-old.
The past season was a magnificent one for the Hammers as they qualified for the Europa League after their sixth place finish in the Premier League. However, if they are to be competitive in European competition next term, they will need to bring in a new striker – as it stands, David Moyes only has Michail Antonio at his disposal in terms of centre-forwards.
That, it appears, has led the Hammers to be interested in Wood (The Mirror). The £7.2m-valued New Zealand international (Transfermarkt) currently plays for Burnley, and has done rather well for the Clarets in the Premier League, scoring at least 10 goals in each of the last four campaigns (Transfermarkt). The Lancashire outfit, it is said, are looking for more than £25m to part ways with him.
Would you like to sign Chris Wood?
The Irons fans clearly want to sign the striker this summer, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Wood below
“They have seen us pay double that for players not even half as good as him. Pay the £25 million he will get 10-15 goals a season for us”
“We paid 20m for Ayew.. Just get him.”
“Fine with this. He’s scored 10+ in the last 4 seasons. If he played for a team like Arsenal, everyone would be happy to pay it.”
“I’d love Chris Wood at West Ham. 10+ goals in 4 consecutive seasons for Burnley. We need to be attracted to players because they’re good, not because of their name.”
“It’s a yes from me”
“Yeah true, I’m not sure why people actually judge players because of their club. I’d take someone like a Chris Wood at West Ham because he’s a proven goal scorer”
