West Ham fans have reacted on Twitter to claims that Burnley ace James Tarkowski now wants to move to the London Stadium in January.
The Clarets centre-back is on the Hammers’ radar according to a report from The Sun. It is alleged that the East London outfit are prepared to pay around £7 million for the 29-year-old in January.
West Ham didn’t meet the Clarets’ asking price for Tarkowski, however, and the centre-back didn’t want to move to the London Stadium either (ExWHUemployee).
The Evening Standard claims that Tarkowski has now performed a U-turn, however, and is keen to join West Ham.
Tarkowski actually wouldn’t be a bad signing at all.
Having lost Angelo Ogbonna and Kurt Zouma to long-term injuries, the addition of a top-class, Premier League proven centre-back in January will be vital.
The problem is the fact that Burnley will be demanding at least £15 million for the 29-year-old (Football Insider).
That is just too much money for a player who will be out of contract at Turf Moor in the summer.

The Hammers faithful do not forgive and forget easily.
Having allegedly rejected the chance to join us last year, the 29-year-old supposedly now wants to swap Lancashire for East London.
Some West Ham fans think Moyes shouldn’t be going anywhere near Tarkowski, however…
