West Ham fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the ludicrous claims that we could be set to make a bid for £60 million-rated Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to bring a top-class striker to the London Stadium before the January transfer window slams shut.

Michail Antonio is currently the Scot’s only centre-forward option at West Ham.

That obviously isn’t good enough for a club with aspirations of challenging for honours both domestically and on the continent.

It’s also unfair on Micky to expect him to produce the goods week in week out. The 31-year-old is being run into the ground and having just one striker at the club is proving to be untenable.

The Sun reckon that Everton hitman is a transfer target for West Ham with the Toffees demanding around £60 million for the 24-year-old’s signature.

All we can say to that is what a load of old rubbish!

Talk about picking names out of a hat, putting two and two together and making five!

There is absolutely no way that West Ham will be paying £60 million for one single player anytime soon. Even if Everton were demanding £40 million for Calvert-Lewin the story wouldn’t be believable!

Calvert-Lewin has been in fine form for Everton, having scored 24 goals in his last 45 games in all competitions (Transfermarkt).

He would obviously be a brilliant addition to Moyes’s ranks at the London Stadium.

It’s a moot point though. There is no way we will be signing him this summer.

The Sun were clearly clutching at straws with their report on the Everton ace being a target for the Hammers. Of course David Moyes would like to sign him but we’re not living in a fantasy world where West Ham splash out enormous fees on players.

Some Hammers fans took to Twitter and completely dismissed the report linking Moyes with a raid on his former club for Calvert-Lewin…
