West Ham are very busy in the transfer market this window with seven players already in the door and more to follow.
Let’s kick off with Spanish defender Ivan Ramis who was all set to move to West Ham after a fee was agreed with his club Mallorca, however after passing his medical he got a call from a certain Roberto Martinez who whispered sweet nothings in Spanish in his ear and now he looks set to move to Wigan.
So was we being used by Mr. Ramis to get Wigan to sweeten the deal? Either way we signed James Collins so we haven’t been left high and dry as we have a good defender who crucially has Premier League experience.
Apparently a deal to take the Argentinian striker on loan for 6 months is in place, however it’s conditional on City signing a top quality striker, who I am assuming is Robin Van Persie who wants out at Arsenal.
I wasn’t paying much attention to this but betting on this transfer has shortened all the way to 3/1 joint favourites with AC Milan. I usually find when the odds turn around like that then there is usually something to it. Whether or not all the pieces fall in to place to make this deal happen is another thing.
Carroll was left out of Liverpools Europa squad yesterday citing injury, however that says to me Rodgers isn’t keen on the player and wants him to move to West Ham as soon as possible or get on the phone and try and get Newcastle to offer the same package so they can cash in and get some replacements in.
Sanchez is a defensive midfield player who is interesting Bolton, West Ham are now looking to scupper the deal for the man known as ‘The Rock’.
How about you guys? Heard anything on the down low you would care to share?
