An attacking star West Ham allegedly made a big verbal offer for is set to have a medical but it’s bad news for David Moyes in a late twist.
Hammers supporters are also well aware their club is often used by players, agents and others clubs to generate interest or drive up prices and contracts.
And the latest falling into that category is the reported pursuit of Montpellier forward Wahi.
Attacking star West Ham allegedly made a big verbal offer for is set to have medical but it’s bad news for David Moyes in late Elye Wahi twist
Earlier this week it was widely reported that Wahi only wanted to sign for West Ham after snubbing a move to Chelsea.
Frankfurt were said to have seen a bid rejected for the jet-heeled 20-year-old.
And just last night, amid competition from Lens, it was being reported in France that West Ham had met Montpellier’s asking price for Wahi with a verbal offer of £34m including add-ons.
But it sums up the media frenzy around West Ham’s window and the club’s dismal transfer conversion rate that fans will not one bit surprised to learn the move has gone in a completely different direction overnight.
Because the attacking star West Ham allegedly made a big verbal offer for is set to have medical but it’s bad news for David Moyes in a late Wahi twist.
Wahi interest was “fleeting” as Moyes champions Bowen for striker while target Kudus can also operate up front
Foot Mercato are reporting that Lens have reached an agreement to sign Wahi with Montpellier and the player. And the alleged West Ham target will now travel for a medical.
The report claims Wahi was “thrilled” at the prospect of joining West Ham. But it is claimed the collapse – for now at least – of West Ham’s potential £80m plus sale of Lucas Paqueta put paid to the move for Wahi.
Although Hammers News has been told by a senior source inside West Ham that interest in Wahi was only “fleeting”.
And it should be noted the move for Wahi was denied by a Hammers board confidant back on August 10th.
Moyes has been publicly championing Jarrod Bowen for the striker role at West Ham this season.
