You get the feeling that if West Ham United are going to lure the Argentine international midfielder, Javier Pastore, to the London Stadium then there are some serious negotiations to be done.
West Ham’s previous interest in the player appeared to have ended when his wage demands were set at £190,000, a staggering amount of money.
However, the news source, Sky Sports, are reporting that West Ham United have re-entered negotiations to try and sign the 28-year-old midfielder.
According to our source, a deal said to be of the magnitude of £17.5 million is being discussed, with his present club, Paris Saint-Germain, being in the unfortunate position where they have to raise €60 million to satisfy the Financial Fair Play Regulations.
Whilst with Paris Saint-Germain, Pastore has made 265 appearances and has scored on 45 occasions. His current contract has just one-year to run which could make him an ideal candidate to be moved on.
Reactions to the Hammers interest in Pastore have generated interest on the social media sites, with it being received positively:

Whilst others are praying the deal gets done:

Will the deal get done?
Only if, we feel, Pastore drops his wage demands significantly. There’s no way the board would commit to the current wage demands of the Argentine, although some might say you have to pay that kind of money if you want world-class players in your side.
But, what are your views on the Hammers being interested in Javier Pastore?
Is it a move that gets your approval?
