West Ham United: talkSPORT reporter makes live on air claim involving Ben Brereton -West Ham Transfer Rumours

talkSPORT reporter Alex Crook, speaking live on air yesterday (via TEAMtalk), has now broken some West Ham United transfer news involving Blackburn Rovers star Ben Brereton.

The Lowdown: Striker hunt on…

Nearly a year since club record signing Sebastien Haller left the London Stadium for Ajax, West Ham have still not officially signed his replacement despite the many links and confirmed bids made.

Manager David Moyes admitted over the summer window he was ‘desperate‘ to sign a striker as competition and back up for Michail Antonio, with that position, an emergency centre-half and Jesse Lingard thought to be his priorities for January.

Some new names have emerged recently, like New York City FC striker Valentin Castellanos, with talkSPORT journalist Crook now breaking news on yet another target.

The Latest: Crook makes live on air claim…

Speaking live on air yesterday, via TEAMtalk, the reporter says that West Ham have now joined the race to sign Rovers striker Brereton following his impressive Championship campaign so far.

Making a claim on the South American, Crook name dropped the Irons as an interested party.

He explained:

“We understand he is attracting interest from the likes of Leeds and West Ham in the Premier League.”

The Verdict: Outstanding new target…

The Chile international with three goals in just nine caps has been a revelation for Rovers this campaign, scoring 17 goals and assisting one other in just 22 English second tier appearances.

Scoring 34 goals in the Championship overall since the beginning of his senior career, Brereton has come on leaps and bounds in front of goal – leaving little wonder why he is attracting Premier League interest.

Called a ‘beast’ by Rovers boss Tony Mowbray, it is unclear at the moment how much the club will want for their star man, but he could be a solid outside candidate to be targeted by West Ham.
