West Ham United have been linked with moves for Bournemouth duo Callum Wilson and David Brooks.
According to Sky Sports West Ham are interested in both Wilson and Brooks.
Sky Sports claims West Ham are one of four clubs chasing Brooks, who has been a revelation during his time at Bournemouth.
West Ham eyeing Wilson and Brooks?
The Hammers have a longstanding interest in Wilson and four years ago ex Cherries boss Eddie Howe confirmed he rejected a bid from the club for the striker (Football Insider).
One of the first jobs for his replacement at Bournemouth, Jason Tindall, has been to respond to questions about the continued interest in Wilson and Brooks from the likes of West Ham and other Premier League clubs in the wake of the South Coast club’s relegation.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Tindall conceded the West Ham targets may leave.
But he insisted there will not be a fire sale.
New Cherries boss comments on transfer links
“I think with any club that’s relegated from any division there’s always that speculation with players leaving or being linked with other clubs,” Tindall told Sky Sports.
“A number of our players are always being linked with moves away, you deal with that as and when it comes around.
“I wouldn’t be sitting here now if I didn’t have assurances. If the club had said fire sale, losing eight or nine players, I wouldn’t be sitting here now.”
West Ham have been linked with a host of players this summer.
Whether David Moyes can afford to buy anyone is entirely different matter.
Cash-strapped Hammers must sell to buy
According to insiders Claret & Hugh, West Ham have no money for transfers and Moyes must sell to buy.
The likes of Felipe Anderson and Manuel Lanzini are being touted for sale.
And West Ham will also listen to offers for a host of other players. That list is believed to include Jordan Hugill, Fabian Balbuena, Arthur Masuaku, Ryan Fredericks and Aaron Cresswell.
So far West Ham have only been able to move on Albian Ajeti, to Celtic for £5million (Scottish Sun).
And with the threat of a FIFA investigation looming, that money is expected to go straight to Frankfurt to pay the £5.4m Sebastien Haller installment that has gone unpaid since May (Sky Sports).
