West Ham United want to sign Graziano Pelle on a free transfer in January according to a report from Tutto Mercato Web.
Hammers boss David Moyes absolutely must strengthen his centre-forward options at the London Stadium this month.
Sebastien Haller continues to struggle whilst Michail Antonio has experienced real problems with his hamstrings.
Signing 35-year-old Graziano Pelle on a free surely isn’t the answer though is it?
Some West Ham fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation…
Graziano Pelle has been playing his football in China for the last four-and-a-half years.
There is absolutely no way that he could return to the Premier League at the age of 35 and succeed, what with its ferocious and intense pace and tempo.
West Ham signing Graziano Pelle would be a disaster
The 20-capped italy international was a fine player in his day.
But West Ham signing him would go against everything David Moyes supposedly stands for.
The Hammers need to be bringing in young and hungry players with high ceilings.
We need to be buying players with bucket loads of potential, not ageing stars who are looking for one last payday.
West Ham should avoid a move for Graziano Pelle at all costs. It has disaster written all over it.
