The Soule noise hasn’t gone away. I wonder if we’re looking at him as a Paqueta replacement. He has bags of skill and a brilliant eye for a defence splitting pass.

Yeah it seems we are PREPARING a bid?

15 Jun 2024 09:03:37
Maybe 1 in 10 of the “reports” about our transfer activity are really worth reading. I’ve just read that Fofana is available…that would be nice.

16 Jun 2024 09:29:54
Hmmm fofana, alvarez midfield very nice

16 Jun 2024 11:38:42
Fofana and Alvarez as a midfield two would be awesome, Fofana would be my number one signing this summer.

{Ed002's Note - No chance I am afraid.}

…just like my dreams…

It seems we are in for a Colombian striker called Jhon Arias. Says on C&H signing imminent and should sign for around £11 Million in the next few days.
It seems slightly different to the usual rumour this seems more certain

This kid Jhon Arias is some player. Very very highly rated Colombian. The team next season will have a very exciting look to it if this continues

15 Jun 2024 09:05:57
A right footer too, which makes a change.

Clement Longlet, Can't be certain of the details at this time but it seems WH, are being offered this player. On a season long loan, no obligation to buy, WH to pay him 100k week approx, Barcelona to give WH the balance of 175k k a week to cover his wages, ! if WH want to retain him at seasons end i, a further deal can be discussed, He's not a bad player, Centre backs are needed, no fees required, i, what it does do of course, is one less player to find for this season, and can spread the search, to a later date, it's being considered, don't know what way WH will go, I think it. Unlikely

{Ed002's Note - Clement Lenglet (CB) Not worked out at Spurs or Aston Villa and will likely return to Barcelona to be sold as his value is less than his annual salary.

They are not going to let him go on loan and pay a huge amount for the priviledge.}

A bit Different to what I heard, but those maths make sense, not many clubs going to pay those wages, certainly not West Ham, unless he’s off to Saudi, Barcelona will find it hard to offload him, thanks Joyful

Ed02 can you give us any information where you think we are in terms of transfer targets etc? Any info you can provide is very appreciated

{Ed002's Note - I may have missed a few things and it may need an update, but it is something like this:

Wes Foderingham (G) West Ham are keen on the out of contract player.
Juan Miranda (LWB) Seen as a Free Agent option for Milan after losing out on Carlos Augusto or Porto. Scouts from West Ham, Brentford and Crystal Palace have also been watching. Wildcard may be Wolves if they lose Ait-Nouri.
Jacob Greaves (CB) Young Hull CB looked at on a number of occasions over the past year by ex-Leicester scout Jose Fontes on behalf of Roma. Seen as another potential Branthwaite replacement for Everton. West Ham have also declared an interest.
Max Kilman (CB) Agent has told several clubs that he could be made available by Wolves - but I am sure they are not looking to sell after signing a new contract not too long ago. Perhaps keep an eye on West Ham.
Jake O'Brien (CB) Having a good season in France so far and was Everton's preferred Jarrad Branthwaite replacement for the summer. West Ham have identified O'Brien as an option, probably the preferred option to replace Aguard. Dortmund offer a wildcard option. Atletico and Newcastle have sent scouts.
Davinson Sanchez (CB) Galatasaray are looking for €25M for Sanchez with interest from Napoli and West Ham. Prior interest of Fulham likely left with the asking price.
Fabricio Bruno (CB) West Ham are very keen on the Flamengo CB but a move seems unlikely as obtaining a Work Permit will be very difficult.
Nehuen Perez (CB) Napoli and West Ham have declared an interest with Udinese.
Jonathan Tah (CB) BL may cash in the summer with serious interest from Bayern Munich as a Dayot Upamecano replacement. Interest from Newcastle - down the list of CB options for Chelsea and Spurs but may still interest WHU as a Zouma replacement. I think he will head to Bayern Munich.
Trevoh Chalobah (CB/DM) – Spurs, Crystal Palace and Manchester United remain keen. Napoli and Roma interest has gone. There was a discussion with Milan with an extraordinary part exchange offer made - but it will go nowhere. Player wants to leave for more game time and I suspect he will be allowed to leave if the right offer comes in. Something may be worked out with Crystal Palace with Chelsea interest in players from their. Spurs interest has returned - but they may only be looking for squad depth, and may only want him as cover. West Ham and Nottingham Forest may offer wildcard solutions but I doubt either would be of interest to the player. Manchester United had an offer rejected last summer but could return, and being Home Grown makes him attractive. Atletico Madrid and Bayern have asked about his fitness but with Tuchel gone Bayern interest will likely have gone and Atletico are close to signing another London based CB, so they can also be discounted. Will likely leave in the summer regardless of long-term contract, but if he gets a guarantee of game time he may well stay - although Chelsea have always avoided making such assurances.
Conor Gallagher (CM) If he leaves it will be to elsewhere.
Aleix Garcia (CM) Has done very well coming back in to the City Group fold after being discarded by Manchester City. Bayer Leverkusen are negotiating a move with Girona. Player has said he is not interested in a move to West Ham.
Emile Smith-Rowe (CM) Wants to leave for more game time. Could be offered to Brentford as part of a part exchange deal for Toney. Brighton, Newcastle or Aston Villa may provide options but the player would likely not be interested. West Ham would like a loan to buy. Napoli interest has gone. A summer move seems possible unless Arsenal give him assurances.
Matias Soule (AM/RW/LW) Atalanta remain keen on the young Argentinian left-footed right winger who is spending the season on loan at Frosinone. Crystal Palace wanted Soule to replace Michael Olise or Eze and had one offer rejected even though they have signed one replacement. They may return with another offer that matches the valuation Juventus have placed on the player. Atalanta may demand him as part of any deal for Koopmeiners. Leicester, West Ham, Wolves, Feyenoord and Spurs can likely be dismissed as a optionn now. Scouts from Liverpool and Spurs attended a match against Sassuolo to watch him in September. Juventus rejected a large offer from the Middle East but Michael Emenalo still has him as a target.
Armand Laurienté (LW/RW) Sassuolo will be open to a good offer for the particularly moody winger with Emil Konradsen Ceide emerging as a replacement and well respected youngster Riccardo Ciervo out on loan for the season. Spurs and West Ham have been keeping a watchful eye.
Raheem Sterling (RW/F) Future unclear - perhaps the Middle East. Chelsea want his wages off the books and are willing to use him as a makeweight in exchange for a specific player but would need to pay at least half his wages. West Ham are open to a move but will not come close to matching his wages.
Luis Guilherme (AM/W) Manchester United, Real Madrid, Chelsea, West Ham, Manchester City, Liverpool and Barcelona have shown an interest in the player for next summer. Chelsea discussed him during negotiations two other players. Spurs may well have noted him when scouting another Palmeiras player. However, a new contract and a €60M release clause will prove to be an issue but West Ham are trying to find a suitable structure to the payments. Subject to paperwork, the move to West Ham is agreed.
Jhon Arias (RW) First choice for West Ham and price will not be an issue - but they need to ensure a Work Permit is available. A potential Bowen replacement perhaps?
Jota (LW) West Ham and Crystal Palace are trying to find a way to end the nightmare the player is having not being eligible to play for Al-Ittihad. There are issues to resolve - a loan would require his full wages to be paid and simply moves the issue down the line. A fee to recover the €30M they paid Celtic for him and reduced wages and resolution of a tax issue would please everyone and allow him to be purchased.
Jota Silva (LW/F) Scouts have been watching him from across Europe including Brentford and West Ham. The player wants a move to Benfica but may need to settle for West Ham who are pushing.
Ibrahim Osman (W/F) Brighton or West Ham would need to pay over the odds to make a transfer happen but will try and find a solution. Crystal Palace may offer an option but I suspect a move to Brighton will happen.
Youssef En-Nesyri (S) Seen as a cheap option for West Ham, Manchester United and Aston Villa, but the player could be open to Mr Emenalo's offer to take him to Al-Hilal. I expect West Ham to push.
Ivan Toney (S) Brentford do not want to sell but are aware Toney may look to move up a step and will reluctantly look to perhaps £70M as a sale price in the summer but will likely not get anything close to that. Newcastle - if they can sell their project to him given - offer the chance of a return to the club who previously could find no use for him in the three years he was there. Arsenal, Leeds, Manchester United, Spurs, Chelsea and West Ham have all sent scouts on more than one occasion to watch him prior to his ban, but Chelsea and Spurs have preferred options meaning West Ham, Arsenal or Manchester United are likely best placed to complete a transfer.
Serhou Guirassy (S) Will head elsewhere.
Dominic Solanke (S) Will head elsewhere.
Fotis Ioannidis (S) West Ham have sent scouts to watch the Greek at Panathinaikos - having a good season but a huge step up. Celtic and Sporting Lisbon offer options and Sporting will likely win out.
Sammie Szmodics (S) Will move this summer. Wants to move to West Ham but it is Galatasaray who were first to declare an interest. Possible Calvert-Lewin replacement for Everton. Leicester offer and option. Could possibly get his desired move but the offer from Turkey might be very attractive.
Jorgen Strand Larsen (S) Of serious interest to West Ham as a Sammie Szmodics alternative. Could be a good buy.
Armando Broja (S) Will be available in the summer with considerable interest. Loan to Fulham failed although Chelsea were paid £4M. Southampton, West Ham or Wolves may look to an early offer but Monaco offer a far more attractive option although they think they can sign their preferred option. Everton have asked for an initial loan but Chelsea want to sell and Everton need to be careful with money. Milan are after two strikers and are looking at Broja in addition to Zirkzee knowing they cannot sign Sesko.}

Absolutely fantastic Ed02! Thank you for the info!

13 Jun 2024 13:14:25
Villa contact WH, knowing we need full backs, to offer Matty Cash, Milan apparently where in for him but short of cash ( not a pun ), Villa, wanted 30 m, but they would have sold at 20 m, to Milan don't know if there's any interest here, but don't think so imo WH wouldn't value him above 15 m / Palace would theoretically be in a position to buy Raheem Sterling, as Olise and Eze look to be on their way, WH have been offered a massive 3 year wage subsidy of approx 200 k a week! If we buy Sterling, he's great on his day, but now 29 so no onward value, and he will be on minimum 125 k a week, can't see him coming to us, seems we are looking for much younger players, which is the correct path in my view

Agree4 Disagree0

13 Jun 2024 13:54:44
I can’t see Steidten/Loppy being interested in Sterling. It seems the wingers we’ve been targeting/ linked with are all young, high quality players with plenty of time to get even better and all would be appreciating assets.

13 Jun 2024 08:20:40
We've seemingly tabled an initial £6.7million bid for VITAO which the Brazilian side, Internacional have rejected alongside a £7.6m bid from Spanish side Real Betis.

Internacional wants at least £10m for the 24-year-old with Nottingham Forest also said to be showing an interest in signing him this summer.

My question is, if we want him, just offer the £10m?

Agree3 Disagree0

14 Jun 2024 08:13:33
Remember FFP. All clubs are being careful now. The days of 'free-spending' are over. If we can save £2m here and there I call that excellent and prudent management.

09 Jun 2024 14:11:33
Another one has popped into view this morning Ben Berreton Diaz, , he's useful., maybe second striker in mind, ?

Agree5 Disagree0

11 Jun 2024 14:11:58
If he is available for a nice cheap price, why not take a punt. We've got worse players already playing for us (Ings for instance) . I do think Newcastle will give us an offer we can't refuse for BOWEN during this window.

What I do find amazing is that considering we only have £100m budget, we are linked with Players like IVAN TONEY. Forget him and just let TS do what he does best, uncover some gems

11 Jun 2024 15:56:51
Hi Daisy, Why not Diaz is lively and quick, Newcastle, are bound down with new regulations, that’s why there looking for free agents like Lloyd Kelly, they are having to get shot of another couple of players, one is likely to be Almiron, to balance their books, So very unlikely they would come up with 100k plus plus for Bowen, lots of clubs being held down with new rules, funnily enough this could work in our favour, with a relatively small budget, which we can spend however without any problems, Villa are now carping, threatening to take the new rules to court, stating it’s anti competitive!

12 Jun 2024 06:56:16
Sorry Hoyful, I may have confused matters. I reckon BBD would definitely be worth a punt even if its only to fill out the squad.

12 Jun 2024 10:13:29
The thing I'd we wouldn't be buying him as a squad player but as our main striker and he is no where near good enough for that, can't see this being a good signing at all or see it happening anyway

08 Jun 2024 22:52:34
Don't know if interest-has waned on EL NESYRI, as it looks like Man United are thinking of submitting a 17 m euro bid Tomorrow , we can't win a bidding war against them, this is a real suprise, !

Agree5 Disagree0

07 Jun 2024 17:42:29
Land of the giants? Two prospects, Carlos. Miguel Gk, 6 feet 9 inches tall, weight 15 stone 5 lbs (97 kilos ), Omorodion. 6 feet 5 inches tall weight 14 stone. Is this a deliberate ploy? Are we looking for big players? Or just a coincidence.

07 Jun 2024 19:33:19
Just another tall story.

08 Jun 2024 11:14:32
Why is it so difficult for WEST HAM to idintify one STRIKER and stick with it. Why do we get associated with 35 strikers every window lol. I was just reading Steinberg's supposed West Ham recruitment plan. Intersting.

To start with, Fab may be retiring so we need at least one new keeper

Zouma's legs have gone, Ogbonna released, Aguerd wants away and the jury still out on Mavropanos so you can argue, at least 2 Centre Backs

Full backs, Coufal is a warrior but his lack of pace is suspect and we have no direct replacement with Johnson supposedly leaving. At LB, Emerson could be on his way to ROMA leaving us with 96 year old, inconsistent AARON CRESSWELL so we need at least one LB.

Alvarez is probably the anchor to build our midfield around, Soucek is a liability in midfield, although, he chipped in with 10 goals last season, he still doesn't contribute enough to support the back 4. Forget Paqueta until he is cleared. JWP contributed very little apart from the odd corner or cross which can't be carried in the premier league so you can argue we need at least 2 midfielders.

And up front, we lost Benrahma, Antonio and INGS are too old and inconsistent, leaving us KUDUS and BOWEN. So we need at least a winger and 2 strikers

Total is 9 new players by that reckoning? What confuses me is that MOYES was happy with his squad not 6 months ago?

And, seemingly, £100m to spend we need to find some serious bargains

08 Jun 2024 15:08:43
Could certainly be an interesting summer Daisy and clearly lopetegui has identified we need players in lots of positions. Striker and full backs is a given, but also interesting to see we are linked with Aleix Garcia amd Fofana

09 Jun 2024 06:33:50
Apparently, Luis Guilherme is flying to London on Monday with a medical scheduled for Tues or Weds. If true, a pat on the back for Steidten.

04 Jun 2024 18:08:23
Starting with negatives, despite stories otherwise, ( at this time ) WH have made no inquiries or offers for any of these players, Summervillle, Archie Gray, Gallagher, or Neketiah, Some of our fans have to understand the only way we can compete in time to come with the Chelsea, Arsenal City Liverpool , top six clubs, is to follow this new regime, and improve the squad gradually we have no more dithering, or vetoing nonsense, lots of clubs are pushed for funds, and /or are struggling with FPP rules, we are not, to be fair, WH are financially a well run club, so we can find some opportunities Will Salthouse is pushing his squadron of players hard, as you know Koussonou, of Leverkusen just the latest, but there will be more no doubt, to be honest, I am loving the way we are going about things, like a breath of fresh air, we need now to get a couple signed off

Sullivan has taken the shackles off Steidten. It will make such a difference in our transfer business.
