For something completely different, here’s a transfer story which doesn’t link West ham United to a striker.

The Hammers are in the market for a forward and it seems like agents around Europe are trying their best to build potential moves to then present them to David Moyes’ side on a platter.

That hasn’t been going very well, with one of the latest men in question, Edin Dzeko, thought to be against the idea of signing for West Ham this month, despite him being in a whole world of trouble at AS Roma.

Dzeko has now been pulled into the Christian Eriksen circus, with the potential of a swap, presumably on a loan basis, between Inter Milan and Roma being pushed by FCInterNews.

They say intermediaries are trying to take Eriksen to England, however, the clubs who have shown interest, with West Ham, Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur named, are more than a little scared over the player’s €7.5m, after tax, wages.

Dzeko earns the same, which appears to be the driver behind this latest transfer idea.

West Ham surely need to get a good deal for a striker before they can think about Eriksen seriously.
