Rumours about Pulgar. He would be a great replacement for Obiang at little cost.

Obiang: £9m
Pulgar €12m release clause.

Net spend about £2m.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jul 2019 23:24:36
Depends on signing on fees etc. so probably a bit more but would be an upgrade.

20 Jul 2019 10:19:14
Agreed. I’ve seen Ed002’s comprehensive list of transfer costs, but I don’t see any way to incorporate them (or make much sense of them! ) when discussing players moving.

It would still seem an excellent transfer move to sell Obiang and replace him by triggering Pulgar’s release clause.

20 Jul 2019 14:49:46
One thing that is obviously clear is our back up players are no way near good enough if we get our usual injuries were screwed net spend of 32 million so far and looking like freebies or loans where's all the money gone with all the players sold and their wages saved same old Sullivan and Gold milking the club dry.

25 Jul 2019 10:32:43
I agree we carry too many players that are not of the standard required if we are to push into the higher positions in the League.
Sanchez Is appalling, Ogbonna is a liability, The Striker we bought from Preston has never been up to it (£10M thrown away ) , Cullen isn’t going to make the grade, Reece Oxford isn’t doing it, Hernandez isn’t scoring weight of goals and only in the box when he does score, he is past his best, left back is a problem and one of the two should go and a decent full back brought In.
Reid needs to prove he can stay fit but deserves the chance
We should get rid of the lot they won’t ever be 1st X1 players and bench warming at best is not going to help them . We should get a fee for most of them which we can spend on decent squad players and buy some quality youths to develop.
We hold on to youths for too long when it’s clear they are never going to be of Premier League standard. What was a flood of top youth players is now a trickle . We should be trying to buy promising 14, yr olds and up if we haven’t got our own . If they are any good then they should progress to the squad and bench at 16 . Other clubs are very aggressive in their youth recruitment we should be trying to bring talent in .
Obiang has gone, in fairness he wasn’t getting much game time and won’t be missed too much, in fact the £8M is more valuable if used for purchases.

17 Jul 2019 22:34:51
Rumour has it we have placed a bid for an African striker? I know a certain Colombian striker who plys his trade in Scotland I'd like to see pull on the claret and blue shirt! Not very disciplined but I'm sure pellegrini can calm him down! How many goals would he have scored with out those bans, I know it's scottish football but you still got to score

Morelos for being quite small and quick definitely makes his presence known I think he would be a big hit with the fans. I watched his highlights 3 minute video for all 30 goals and then a 17 minute video for all his cards to be fair a lot of his cards and sending offs were soft and poor decisions a lot of the decisions would rule in his favour with VAR. Just seems there was abit of an agenda with him. I'd definitely take a chance on him his fight and graft would endear him to the fans and can clearly finish He would be good cover and or a partner for haller that could be a fierce combination.

18 Jul 2019 11:41:21
Bob/ Iron, strongly agree with both, I love a terrier on the field, especially when they can score as well, as you say what a combination if he could be calmed down somewhat, I would have him as another addition double quick👍Get him if possible⚒⚒⚒COYI.

18 Jul 2019 13:36:26
Apparently Ex has said something about him being available for £4m or £5m. I’m not sure I understand why when Gerrard valued him at £20m.

There are also reports that he is an ar*ehole in the dressing room.

18 Jul 2019 14:06:27
I quite like Morellos. Was shocked Ex said he could be got for 4/ 5m.
The African striker I believe is Ben Yedder, could be Marega too I suppose but know we were interested a couple of years ago.

18 Jul 2019 16:55:56
I think you’re right about Ben Yedder. Good player, not yet over the hill, but he would still cost a few bob.

19 Jul 2019 06:39:07
we have done gt business so far i'm sure Pel. has his eye on other players he wants tu bring in.
As it says on a dollar bill, IN GOD WE TRUST
On our shirts it should read. IN PEL WE TRUST.

19 Jul 2019 08:42:21
If it is Morellos we may be linked with, Rangers will now up their fee after the hat trick on Thursday even though it was against a Pub team! ⚒⚒⚒.

19 Jul 2019 09:57:07
We have no cash left to spend according to C&H. I can see a couple of loans coming in, or maybe the odd free.

19 Jul 2019 10:54:22
African player you mention may be Youssef en-nesyri. Think exwhu employee mentioned him or seen a news article. 4-5m seems low maybe as upfront payment then lots of add ons. If we make up the majority of the valuation with performance based add ons that would suit us nicely the better he performs the more rangers get and less risk for us.

I don't believe the c&h article about us having nothing left. If the right deals become available we will find the money.

We might still get a decent amount for obiang but based on what I've seen I'd feel more confident of him coming on rather than Sanchez he never seems to no what's behind him. That cost us points last season when he did play and seeing the same in preseason now doesn't fill me with confidence.

Business not done yet the fact we are being linked to players early to mid twenties is refreshing bodes well for the future makes a lot more sense than how we have conducted business in the past.

19 Jul 2019 15:24:51
IronAl, just saw your comment and looked him up - you may be on to something! Not so sure he is worth it though? He does fit the bill though, player Husillos knows and scored 1/ 3 in a decent European league.
Morellos- he is rated quite low because (sorry to say it) the Scottish League is not highly rated. Despite scoring 30+ goals last season, he is still only valued at £2.7m on transfermarkt. That being said, like him as a player, is young and could do a job for us. I reckon 5-10m would get him.
I too don't believe the 'no money left nonsense' we had the same last year after Diop/ Anderson and then bought Balbuena, Fabianski, Yarmolenko and Sanchez (maybe forget the last one! ) I believe in total we signed just shy of 30m worth of new players after we *had no money* Will be the same this year - sign two strikers for about 20m total.

19 Jul 2019 18:52:07
Agree Glen re the no money left, standard business talk, very sensible, you don’t want to flaunt “money’s no object”👍 if we assumed we maybe have £15m plus a little more in reserve, we can surely get at least one maybe two in that are half decent as backups? I could think of several but of course it’s who wants to come, it’s who is available, very difficult I know, but if we get nobody else, we should still be able to compete with what we have, it won’t be a catastrophe? ⚒⚒⚒⚒.

20 Jul 2019 08:43:16
Yes, agree 100%
Reckon one signing and one free/ loan striker if we shift Chicharito.
Dont really see what else we need? Good squad, depth in every position if we get a couple of strikers in.

25 Jul 2019 09:50:27
Morellos would be a great signing . He is aggressive scores plenty of goals and will be relatively cheap because playing in Scottish Pub League. I agree his disciplinary record isn’t great but I also think he is a marked man up there. We did well when signing a nutter from North of the Border ( via Sheffield Wed ) , and whilst he hasn’t PdiCs skills he finds the back of the net more often .
We can’t lose much if we need to move him on, and his wages aren’t likely to break the bank . But I think he will do ok, he can’t be any worse than the dross we have seen masquerading as strikers of late . We paid £10M for the one we bought from Preston who has managed 3 appearances and no goals which would make a fee of £20M if we had to pay it seem a steal by comparison . We certainly won’t need to pay him the money we paid Carroll to be constantly injured or I would guess the blank firing Zaza who Inter tried to sell us .
He must be a better option than Llorente who only got games for Tott because he was bad enough to be content bench warming when Kane was able to play.

17 Jul 2019 20:02:43
I think Sanchez and ogbonna showed against city we gave more work to do on transfer front. Sell them both.

Agree6 Disagree0

25 Jul 2019 09:14:58
Be lucky to sell Sanchez, if we give him away and save his wages we can count ourselves lucky . He should never get near the squad he is really crap unbelievable he gets in the Colombian National side .
Ogbonna has been a liability for a couple of years now, we were so short of centre halves he got a number of games but if we have any ambition then we won’t see him again . We should get a small fee for him, but he has always tried it’s just that it’s not that good, lose his wages and give him a free if necessary .

17 Jul 2019 13:13:20
Haller has signed official photo on WHU website and C&H.

Agree3 Disagree0

17 Jul 2019 13:31:11
Welcome Haller!

In Pelle we believe. Trust the process!

17 Jul 2019 14:11:33
Omg I nearly cried when I saw Haller with the shirt! Sorry to appear soft guys but this is a quality signing and a real sign of intent. I really think we could have a fantastic season!

17 Jul 2019 14:42:00
Calm down Dabber, you might make us all emotional🤣😂 ⚒⚒⚒.

17 Jul 2019 17:29:04
Cheers Chelms, was just having a moment 🤣😂👍.

17 Jul 2019 18:48:26
I first saw it when they revealed the 3rd kit along with the dance, been smiling all day since . If anyone hasn't seen the video it's worth the watch.

17 Jul 2019 10:17:36
Does anybody know what is the hold up on this Haller deal?, by all account he passed a medical yesterday and have had no news of a Press Conference or anything on this. I know I probably being impatient but I do get worried when it comes to us and major transfers.

I thought if he went for a medical everything is sorted, unless i'm wrong. any update Ed 002 please?

{Ed002's Note - Paperwork has to be done, international clearance applied for and obtained, etc.. There is no hold up.}

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2019 13:19:05
Haller has appeared on the video for our new third kit!

17 Jul 2019 11:29:33
Thanks Ed002, at least you didn't say there is a hiccup as another team has bid for the player.

16 Jul 2019 10:10:21
its also been confirmed by eintrach on twitter.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2019 10:47:18
I'm buzzing with this but trying to to be untill I see him holding the shirt!

16 Jul 2019 10:53:55
Eintracht and @WestHamUtd have agreed terms for the transfer of @HallerSeb. Haller has now been cleared to undergo a medical in London. If all goes to plan then Haller will sign with the Hammers. #SGE

that is what it says on their official twitter account. #COYI.

16 Jul 2019 11:06:46
I posted a lot earlier but again my post was not shown keeps happening?

{Ed033's Note - Please don't put an email address in the form.

16 Jul 2019 11:45:22
Just seen a report that another PL team[manU] ready to make late bid anyone has any news on this?

16 Jul 2019 13:03:52
Hiya john I'm 95% sure it's UTD or EVERTON. COYI.

16 Jul 2019 13:26:10
Inter Milan and a CHAMPIONS LEAGUE team have shown interest. My guess would be Napoli or Lille/ Lyon.

16 Jul 2019 14:13:07
I hope their Twitter post didn't signal some other clubs could just be the papers making rubbish up as usual easy clicks for them.


16 Jul 2019 14:44:26
To be fair, would be really surprised if anyone could hijack it at this stage.

16 Jul 2019 13:05:47
Any news Ed on an unamed premier league team trying to hijack west hams transfer of HALLER. COYI.

{Ed002's Note - I know nothing of a PL side.}

16 Jul 2019 13:50:37
Inter and Dortmund both interested in late bids apparently.

Any thoughts on their interest Ed and ability to match our offer to both club and player?

Assumedly Frankfurt put their Twitter message out to alert other clubs that it was now or never?

{Ed002's Note - He has been seen as an option for Dortmund - but not first choice.}

16 Jul 2019 16:14:07
You think it will go through ed?

{Ed002's Note - There has to be a great chance of signing him - then maybe look at Maupay.}

16 Jul 2019 17:25:38
Guessing it would be a bit like Liverpool debating going for Callum Wilson or a more guaranteed and high profile finished article of a player.

16 Jul 2019 17:45:42
Thanks ed.

16 Jul 2019 22:34:52
As mentioned a couple of days ago, by all accounts he has some sort of clause that allows a CL team to get him for an unspecified fee. Again CL team really only means England, Spain, Italy, France, Germany so 15 or so clubs of which several won’t have space so a concern but if he does sign we really need the team as a whole to push forward so players don’t want to leave. As someone said yesterday, would be sad if players didn’t have ambition to play CL, but while CL is probably a way off yet, we need to players to be feeling they have the players around them to push the club forward.

17 Jul 2019 08:45:06
just a question. but say by some miracle west ham qualified for the champions league then another champions league came in for him. how would that work?

17 Jul 2019 11:51:49
Don’t know - let’s hope it’s something we have to worry about hardcore.

16 Jul 2019 10:07:55
sky sports reporting haller is on route to london for a medical.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2019 10:00:35
In their message, the Bundesliga club said:

"Eintracht and West Ham have agreed on transfer terms regarding Sebastien Haller.

As a result, Haller has clearance to complete the medical exam in London.

Should this take a positive course, Haller will join the Hammers. "

I am so hoping this is true!

Agree2 Disagree0

16 Jul 2019 12:23:59
Me to I'm a big fan as u guys have guessed been wanting him here for a few seasons hope nothing hampers this deal.

16 Jul 2019 09:17:00
Byram gone for less than a mil, is great business for norwich . Good luck to him.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2019 09:39:10
its absolutely pathetic business from West Ham! we sell a 25yr old English PML player to another PML team for 750k! . you couldn´t buy a 2nd division player for that! . who negotiates these deals! . ridiculous!

16 Jul 2019 10:02:50
It doesn’t sound good, but he was in the last year of his contract on £30k a week and WH needed to free up his wages. I’ve read that there are conditions written in so presumably there’s a hefty sell on clause.

15 Jul 2019 12:58:57
C&H reporting this morning:

English-speaking Haller has made up his mind that a move to the Premier League is the next stage of his career and a highly placed source inside the club have told ClaretandHugh they consider the chances now better than 50/ 50.

We were told by e mail: “The player really wants to come to West Ham – he has made that clear to us so we have to believe this is now possible. ”

Hammering out a deal with the German outfit may be a little more problematical as we understand Frankfurt are looking for closer to £42 million for the player plus various add ons which would include sell on percentages.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2019 19:21:51
And man utd are now sniffing. Best we get deal done quickly cause this striker saga is dragging on a bit.

15 Jul 2019 19:56:53
If Man U are in fact in for him and he knows that then this will drag on and on until Man play their hand.

16 Jul 2019 08:33:48
Various sources coming out now saying this is very close/ done.

All feels quite the coup if we get it over the line!

If so be interesting to see who the second striker to try and bring in is.
