The Raul thing


Filed: Friday, 27th June 2008

Grasshopper Zurich's Argentinian striker Raul Bobadilla is the latest player to be linked with a move to West Ham United.

The highly-rated striker, 21 last week, fired 18 goals for Zurich in the Swiss Super League last season to help his club to an Intertoto spot this summer and today's Daily Mirror claim that the Hammers are keeping tabs on his progress.

He began his career in Argentina with River Plate before moving to Basle in 2006 where he scored an impressive 18 goals from 28 appearances. That record prompted Zurich to splash out this time last summer.

With the Hammers looking to boost their attacking options this summer, 5'11" Bobadilla - who is likely to be available for around the 4 million mark - would fit the bill perfectly.
