West Ham fans are calling for David Moyes to bring Carlos Tevez back to the club.
The transfer window is obviously now closed. The Hammers can still sign free agents if they so wish, however.
And with Michail Antonio the only centre-forward option for David Moyes at the London Stadium, a stop-gap free transfer may well be a useful option for West Ham.
The problem is, many of the strikers available on a free transfer are not fit for purpose.
There is one name that stands out, however – Carlos Tevez.
The 37-year-old joined West Ham from Corinthians on a crazy transfer deadline day way back in the summer of 2006.
The 76-capped Argentina international moved to Upton Park alongside his compatriot Javier Mascherano and the deal was instigated by notorious agent Kia Joorabchian.
Tevez racked up seven goals and five assists in 29 games for the Hammers before leaving Upton Park for Manchester United (Transfermarkt). His fine form during the final six or seven games of the 2006/07 season was the main contributing factor behind West Ham avoiding relegation.
West Ham eventually paid the price and a hefty one at that – £5.5 million, having breached Premier League transfer rules to sign the Argentine stars (The Guardian).
West Ham fans want Carlos Tevez re-signed
It may be a romantic idea steeped in nostalgia…but surely re-signing the Argentinian ace is better than bringing nobody in at all?
On the condition that he doesn’t demand mega wages of course.
