Tuesday’s edition of Tuttosport says this price will make Lazio turn their attention to other targets, and it would also make it difficult for Swansea to make a move. But still, West Ham won’t change their mind, and are sticking to the price.
On Monday, Tuttosport said the Italian side were set to pay only €3m for the loan and other €10m for a permanent transfer, so this new price really comes as a surprise. Either there’s been a change, or Tuttosport can’t get their story straight.
Valencia signed for the Hammers from Pachuca in 2014 for £12.75m. Despite the player having scored only 10 goals in 61 appearances, the Hammers still want to make a profit when selling him. His contract expires in June 2019.
