According to a report from the Athletic, Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori aims to push for a permanent move away in January – prompting these West Ham fans to plead for the ‘big name’ signing despite him rejecting a London Stadium move.
Tomori has found game time difficult to come by in west London this season, and sources tell the Athletic he will be pushing to secure an exit next month after he turned down the possibility of signing for West Ham over the summer window.
Should West Ham sign Tomori?
Indeed, the alleged Hammers target could well be on the move in January, prompting many Irons to beg David Moyes and GSB for his signature as the possibility of exciting mid-season additions becomes more prevalent.
The 23-year-old, valued at just £15.3 million by Transfermarkt, could possibly represent a cheaper alternative to fellow Hammers target James Tarkowski.
Having their say over this development, here’s how West Ham supporters pleaded their case for Tomori – find all of their verdicts down below.
West Ham fans plead for Tomori signing
“If we for whatever reason cash in on Issa Diop (not saying we will and/or should) then I would go in for Tomori.
Personally just think he’s a better player than Diop and we could make a profit out making this move that could fund another transfer.”
“Tomori to West Ham please i beg”
“We need to get that done if true, great player, would work well in the back 3 aswell ⚒”
“We should definitely take him as a long term replacement for Ogbonna, Balbuena has done far too well IMO to being dropped. But I’d love to see him in a 5 at the back with Ogbonna and Balbuena.”
“Get him in”
“I’d take him. Still find it weird that our fans hold a grudge for him backing himself and wanting to fight for his place. Owners won’t part with a penny though”
