ExWHUemployee has claimed today that reported West Ham target Isaac Hayden could be too expensive for the east London outfit.
The Telegraph reported earlier this summer that the Hammers want to sign the £20 million-rated Newcastle ace.
Hayden, 24, can play as both a centre-back and a deep-lying midfielder. And that versatility will undoubtedly appeal to Manuel Pellegrini.
West Ham have already been very busy in the transfer market this summer. Pellegrini has brought in Pablo Fornals and Sebastien Haller. And these will be very exciting times for Hammers fans.
It seems as though the Chilean wants to strengtehn his options further still, however.
Although ExWHUemployee suggested today that Hayden might just be out of West Ham’s reach:
Budget is very dependent on players out at moment so I’m not sure we will be able to afford him https://t.co/01aRl7gK4F

West Ham do have plenty of options in both central defence and midfield, so if they do miss out on Hayden, it won’t be too much of a blow.
Should Pedro Obiang leave the London Stadium, however, that might change, and bringing the Newcastle man to east London could all of a sudden become a more pressing priority.
