So, Braithwaite has rejected us because he thinks coming to West Ham would be a step back in his career.

Well, I suppose he is at Barcelona - but he would have jumped at the chance when he was at Toulouse or Leganes!

Would like to see some progress on Origi who I would have thought would be a better bet.

Any news?

{Ed002's Note - Divock Origi (S) The interest of Cercle Brugge has gone due to asking price. Fenerbahce are interested in a loan with an option to buy. Crystal Palace had him on a list of potential Batshuayi and Wickham replacements but have moved on. He will be somewhere down the extensive list of strikers West Ham are considering but might be a realistic option as they need to fix two key problems. Wolves offer an option but not at the asking price. Liverpool will keep him if they cannot get the price they want.}

If we were seriously looking at him we have major problem
He may have done ok in the euro but in my opinion he looked like a headless chicken but hasn't done notheing elsewhere
If moyes is really looking at bring him in we need to get moyes as far away from transfers as possible.

And just when I thought the rumours couldn't get much worse than Braithwaite, along comes a Luke de Jong link . Oh my days, I really hope this is just media mischief!

There wasn't really an offer load of bollocks. Step down? only reason he got to Barcelona was as an emergency singing he would he 4th choice in most prem teams and would be an average championship striker.

You can't blame him for wanting to stay he's been promoted to ball boy now Messi has left.

Tbf I’ve lost interest in Barcelona now that Messi has gone. I only used to watch them for his magic. I guess that makes me a PSG armchair fan now.

You mean you aren't going to tune in to watch Braithwaite bring the water bottles on to the pitch Markro?

I agree though Messi, Neymar and Mpabbe is some forward line.

In all honesty we may been linked with him he hasn’t done anything since he left France how many times have we seen French players scoring for fun but when they have moved clubs they have struggled to adapt to different games we don’t need to lay out massive transfer fees n agent’s fees look at Haller and Anderson then look at Antonio sousek coufal picked up for reasonable fees. we don’t have a large transfer kitty so DM has to get it right.
