West Ham United fans are unhappy after it was suggested by reliable club insider ExWHUemployee that Divock Origi is the club’s back-up plan if they fail to sign Tammy Abraham this summer.
David Moyes completed a fantastic job last term as he led the Hammers to a sixth-place finish in the Premier League and a place in the Europa League in the process.
What makes that success even more remarkable is the fact the Hammers only had one recognised striker in Michail Antonio for the second half of the season after Sebastien Haller was sold to Ajax.
As they compete on four fronts this coming campaign, they cannot afford to have only one centre-forward. They have been linked with Abraham, but according to ExWHUemployee, the Irons will move for 26-year-old Origi if they can’t capture the Chelsea man.
Would you like to sign Origi?
The news was shared on Twitter by @WestHam_Central, and it attracted plenty of attention from the supporters. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Origi news below
“Please please no”
“I am BEGGING you, join us @tammyabraham”
“I might cry”
“This window is a disaster”
“I actually threw up in my mouth a little.”
