West Ham In Talks To Sign Graziano Pelle

West Ham United are trying to sign former Southampton striker Graziano Pelle before the transfer window slams shut next week.

David Moyes' side have just completed the loan capture of Portugal midfielder Joao Mario from Inter, but are not stopping in their bid to strengthen the squad at the London Stadium.

According to Sky Italia, the Hammers have zeroed in on ex-Southampton hitman Pelle, who is currently plying his trade in China.

The Italian striker turns out for Shandong Luneng and West Ham are working to try to find an agreement with the Chinese side.

The Premier League outfit are without an injured Andy Carroll, who is likely to miss the rest of the season, and want another striker.

Pelle, 32, moved to China from Southampton in 2016 in a surprise switch as he jumped on the Chinese Super League train.

West Ham will hope his Premier League experience can mean he can hit the ground running if he does join this month, but it remains to be seen if Moyes' men can reach an agreement.

Masuaku replacement lined up & Atletico star linked

By Rob Guest

With five days to go until the transfer window slams shut, West Ham are expected to be busy in the transfer market over the coming days.

David Moyes is keen on strengthening his squad, especially midfield, prior to Wednesday, while it looks like there will be some outgoings at the London Stadium.

Javier Hernandez has been linked with a move away from the club, while Diafra Sakho looks almost certain to not be with the Hammers come the start of next month.

Here we take a look at the latest transfer news and gossip surrounding the Hammers.

Hammers keen on Fulham man

Linked with a move to Newcastle United and West Brom, the Hammers are believed to be the latest club to be keen on a deal for Fulham's Tom Cairney.

The ex-Hull City midfielder has impressed at Craven Cottage since 2015 and it probably is only a matter of time before he heads to the Premier League.

According to reports, Moyes is keen on the player and the club are ready to splash out £15million to bring him over to east London.

However. Fulham don't want to part ways with any of their star players, especially as they're now back in with a shout of promotion to the top flight.

West Ham fans will be praying Everton don't steal a march on them in the race for Anderlecht's Leander Dedoncker.

With Hammers' assistant Stuart Pearce watching him play on Sunday, reports now suggest that Everton have been offered the youngster.

While the Belgian side don't want to part ways with their star player this month, a move in the summer could well happen.

That could potentially play into the Toffees' hands, especially as they could sign him and then loan him back for the rest of the campaign.

Given the transfer saga surrounding Henry Onyekuru in the summer, the Hammers must ensure that lightning doesn't strike twice.

Hammers eyeing up new left-back

Following reports from Italy suggesting Arthur Masuaku could be on his way, the Hammers are believed to be keeping tabs on Bologna's left-back Adam Masina.

With Emerson Palmieri on the verge of a move to Chelsea from Roma, it was claimed that the Italian side, as well as Monaco and Manchester United, were keen on a deal for Masuaku.

Given those reports, Gazzetta dello Sport state the club have now turned their attention to Masina, whose contract is due to expire next year.

Bologna are working on a new deal for the player at present, although if West Ham made an offer it would certainly make things interesting.

Atletico Madrid star attracting interest

Reports from Italy claim that the Hammers are keen on a possible deal for Atletico Madrid's Nico Gaitan.

Following talk of a move to Old Trafford in the past, Swansea City are rumoured to be keen on a potential deal for the 29-year-old.

However, given the Welsh side's current position, he doesn't seem right keen on a move to the Liberty Stadium.

With Gaitan potentially on his way from the Spanish capital by next Wednesday, Italian outlet TMW suggest that Moyes is keen on a deal for the attacking midfielder.

Atleti are said to want between €17-20million for the player at present, yet their valuation will no doubt drop the closer it gets to Wednesday.

No Shelvey deal

It doesn't look like Jonjo Shelvey will be making a return to the capital before the transfer deadline.

Linked with a move to the Hammers to strengthen the midfield, Sky Sports News claim the club have yet to make a bid, nor have made an official approach for the 25-year-old.

As well as that, given Newcastle's current precarious position, it is highly unlikely the Magpies will sell to a fellow rival.

While Rafa Benitez's side could bring in some additions in before the end of the window, Shelvey doesn't look like he'll be going anywhere.

Latest on Sakho's exit

It's probably only a matter of time before Sakho seals a move away from east London.

Crystal Palace, Newcastle and West Brom have all been linked with the player, while Boredeaux and Rennes are said to be keen on a deal for the striker.

With Rennes failing with two offers so far this month, the Daily Mail suggest he could actually be heading to France over the coming days.

The Ligue 1 side want to sign the player on loan until the end of the season with the option of making the move permanent.

However, the move will only be made permanent if the Senegalese forward scores seven goals for the club between now and the end of the season.


Sullivan confronted by fans in car park

West Ham Chairman David Sullivan was confronted in the Wigan car park yesterday evening by Hammers fans angry at the club’s 2-0 dismissal from the FA Cup.

And the co-chairman allegedly told supporters “We can’t sign anyone!” adding that it was almost impossible to do business in the current January window.

Sullivan challenged West Ham away supporter Nick Mark who they would sign if they were in charge and Marsh duly answered “Jonjo Shelvey”

Marsh writing on twitter account after the car park encounter claimed the chairman answered, “He’s useless!” and they walked off.

The chairman also allegedly revealed to another West Ham supporter the true cost of the Joao Mario loan saying he was on a weekly wage of £101,000 per week plus a £2m loan fee to his parent club.

Since most loans run until the end of June this would mean £2m in wages making the total investment £4m for the Inter Milan midfielder.

David Gold defended his business partner for walking off and sitting in his car after the exchange saying “I don’t think you can criticise DS for getting in the car given what happen to him after we lost 4-0 away to WBA a couple of years ago. dg’

Thanks Alan.

I agree we shouldn;t be signing Shelvey.

But we should probably be signing SOMEONE.

Shelvey useless? Compared to who?
Could easily take a place in our XI

Cheers Al, we all appreciate your efforts, mate.

Some interesting stuff there... must admit I'd be pissed off to lose Arfa, despite his sending off. Always seems such a mild mannered guy - wonder what's going on..? Perhaps he's being 'offered for sale' as opposed to actually wanting to go.

And...typical of our luck... somebody actually gets nose to nose with Sully, and it turns out to be a fucking half wit moron instead of someone with his head screwed on. *sighs*

For once, I agree with Dildo-man, Shelvey IS useless.

Thanks Alan

You just know Shelvey will score against us next season now as Charlie Austin did after being ‘rated’ by Sullivan

Pochettino and Kane to Real Madrid would at least provide SOME cheer
Zidane might not even be saved by winning the Champions League at the moment
