West Ham ‘think’ of signing player in January – Intermediaries working for Hammers

Two days ago, Fichajes.net reported West Ham United have Sevilla goalkeeper Yassine Bounou, also known as Bono, on their agenda.

Alphonse Areola joined the Hammers in a permanent deal in the summer and has not managed get ahead of 37-year-old Łukasz Fabiański. The latter’s deal expires in 2023.

Earlier on Friday, La Razón explained that Areola has not convinced Moyes and this has seen West Ham set their sights on Bono. The La Liga man has a €50m release clause.

It was also stated Sevilla are willing to lower the price as long as the Premier League side make an attractive offer for the Morocco international.

Mundo Deportivo have a report on the custodian, titled: ‘West Ham tempt Bono’. Within the report, they highlight reports from the UK discussing Hammers’ interest in the 31-year-old.

The newspaper then provide their own info about this case. It’s said the Premier League side, through certain intermediaries, usually study making offers for Sevilla players. The last player they made a proposal was Youssef En-Nesyri.

West Ham ‘think’ of Bono either for January or next summer, likely to replace Fabiański.

Sevilla have seen some of their stars leave in the summer and therefore will not consider the Moroccan’s sale in the winter market.

Their position could change for next summer as the report states it would be ‘feasible’ for West Ham or another club to sign Bono after this season and the player would also be open to taking the next step in his career.


West Ham and Newcastle have scouted ace who’s spoken about joining Arteta this week

Charles Jones

According to 90Min, the likes of West Ham and Newcastle sent scouts to watch Mykhaylo Mudryk against Scotland this week.

The Ukrainian attacker has been making waves in the Champions League this season, and apparently almost half of the Premier League were looking at him in midweek.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Leeds and Everton all had scouts present at Ukraine’s recent clash with Scotland, while Newcastle and West Ham are also interested parties.

While the Hammers and the Magpies may be keen, Arsenal are the club that seem to be leading this race.

Indeed, the Gunners were strongly linked in the summer, and just a fortnight ago the attacker admitted that he’d be open to a move to Arsenal, saying: “I think every player dreams about the Premier League. It’s hard to say [which team he’d like to join] but Arsenal is a very good team, very good coach, I like the way they play.”

When asked if he would make a move to the Emirates he said: “From my side, I can’t say no [to Arsenal]. But the transfer is not only my decision.”

Of course, Mudryk saying that he’d be open to joining Arsenal isn’t to say that a transfer is imminent, and we can’t write of West Ham or Newcastle’s chances.

Newcastle are, of course, the richest club in the world and they need a new right-winger, while West Ham did beat Arsenal to the signing of Lucas Paqueta this summer, so you’d have to be daft to write off David Moyes’ chances of winning this race.

Mudryk is certainly a player to keep an eye on in the coming months, and while he won’t be headed to the World Cup in Qatar, he may be on of the most sought-after players in the post-World Cup January transfer window.


Dimitri Payet still appreciated at West Ham?

Dimitri Payet, the attacking midfielder of OM, is in difficulty within his heart club. To the point of considering a departure during the next Premier League transfer window?

Will Dimitri Payet crack and leave a club in which he has designated himself "Marseillais for life"? According to information from 10 Sport, the idea would make its way into the mind of the French international. In particular because of his low playing time this season since the arrival of Igor Tudor on the OM bench. A Croatian coach who replaced a resigning Jorge Sampaoli at short notice.
Payet loves the Premier League

According to the French media, Dimitri Payet would always have the coast on the side of West Ham. And the player remains attached to the Premier League and the Hammers: “The Premier League allowed me to realize a dream. It is a championship that makes you dream. Even more today when we see the teams that are only getting stronger. I lived a year and a half full of emotions,” he said a few weeks ago. To the point of wanting to drop everything and come back to it? To be continued…
