Maiga's on the list... bring him home :scarfer:
In all seriousness there are some ok players on there who would be half decent additions to the squad, Martin Olsson for one if we are going to play wingbacks more regularly. I'm shocked Moyes hasn't had a look at Anichebe too.

As much as we could do with a RB and another forward. The issue of the midfield has come to the boil for me, and I just get irrationally angry every time we are linked to another player who is not a midfielder. We could sign the new Messi and he would still be rendered ineffective by our current midfield. It's such a bugbear for me that anything short of a midfielder(the correct type of midfielder) this window will be considered a failure.

:wink:

TBF he's roughly a 1 in 5 striker, most of which seem to be from 2nd division, so he looks ready to go straight into the first team :thup:

I bet we haven't even scouted this geezer. He was offered to Brighton yesterday. His tin pot club cant wait to get rid of him.

Splendid. Pardon?

same.. im a few days away from screaming at clouds... the reason why i see the value in bringing back cullen, will he dominate the premiership? no.. will he give moyes options in the start 11 and off the bench, absolutely

maybe we can use this coronavirus breakout out of china to our favour - quaratine the squad and coaching staff at rush green 24/7 while the rest of the premiership drop like flies, can we catch liverpool at this stage?

Yep that phone call
We would like what I can only presume is your best striker but we only want him on loan in case he's **** and we go down. I know this means you then can't replace him but you'll be doing us a huge favour. Thanks The Dave's.

Amiens

Maybe Guirassy will be brilliant.

What does the club he plays for currently have to do with how good he'd be for us?

There is almost no chance we are going to be able to solve the midfield problem long term in a January transfer window when we are in a relegation battle.

Nothing, it's the fact we're asking sh*t clubs like Amiens to lend us their bang average players because we're too tight to spend any money!

Football London

West Ham plotting move for Slavia Prague midfielder Tomas Soucek

The Hammers are desperate to bolster their options in midfield and have identified the Czech international as a potential signing

By Sam Inkersole

West Ham are exploring a deal to sign midfielder Tomas Soucek from Slavia Prague, football.london understands.

The 24-year-old midfielder is valued at around €25m by his club but the Hammers have been told they could get him for half that if a deal can be struck. They are confident they can agree an initial loan deal with an option to buy at the end of the campaign but nothing has been agreed yet.

Soucek has scored ten goals so far this season, eight in the Fortuna Liga, for Prague and plays effectively as a number six or eight in the midfield so could slot in alongside Declan Rice.

Soucek has picked up 25 caps for his country

West Ham are desperate for a new midfielder this window and have been linked with a host of them so far as they bid to battle against the drop. A move for Genk midfielder Sander Berge is unlikely, football.london understands.

The club also holds interest in f*** Kessie of AC Milan and Joe Allen of Stoke City but the latter would be a last resort.

With just a week of the transfer window remaining, the Hammers need to get a move on if they want to bolster the squad having only signed Darren Randolph so far this window as a backup goalkeeper from Middlesbrough for £4m.

The club is currently struggling to attract players, with football.london understanding that two players this summer have rejected the club's advances as they don't want to be involved in a relegation battle.

Another move has also fallen through with the selling club wanting a permanent option included in a loan deal even if the Hammers were relegatedat the end of the season.

Quite possible that we have no interest in Guirassy at all and it's just his agent trying to get him a move. He's been linked with Leicester and Aston Villa in the last few days too.

For me, it's not about the the long term heir to Noble - we'll need to wait for the summer window for that. We do however need someone in the vein of a Joao Mario to do a job for us for the rest of the season.
