This morning, as you’d expect for a Sunday, the press contains several snippets of transfer speculation relating to West Ham United.
As the title of the article suggests, we’ve picked up on three pieces that may be of interest to you.
The first relates to the West Ham Player of the Year Marko Arnautovic.
Arnuatovic, on the back of a splendid season at West Ham, has attracted the attention of other Premier League clubs.
According to the tabloid publication The Sun, the 29-year-old is wanted by both Manchester United and Everton. But, surely, the Hammers have no intention of selling the Austrian, to do so would cause ructions amongst the Hammers support.
The second piece, as featured in the Daily Star, carries speculation relating to the Hammers making an acquisition.
According to our source, the player in question is the Arsenal midfielder, Jack Wilshere. Seemingly, if the 26-year-old decides to leave Arsenal, Pellegrini wants to be at the front of the queue to sign a player who appears to have overcome his injury problems.
Lastly, the news source the Guardian, focuses on a piece of speculation that first appeared on Saturday, the prospect of Javier Pastore joining West Ham United.
In our piece yesterday, Click Here, we implied the finances relating to the deal going through could scupper the move. However, our source, perhaps pointing out the obvious, infers that Pastore would have to accept a pay-cut if the deal for the Argentine midfielder were to go ahead.
So, in surmising the situation, there’s a chance Arnautovic’s success may see him move on, a chance that Wilshere might come to the club if he decides life at Arsenal is not for him and a chance that Pastore may become a Hammer if he’s prepared to accept a pay cut if life in East London appeals to him.
Not the kind of news I was hoping to bring this first Sunday in June.
