The Argentine media isn’t done with West Ham’s chase for River Plate fullback Gonzalo Montiel.
Following the Hammers’ failed attempt to sign the player in January, it’s now claimed the Premier League side could still try to get him in the summer window.
CNN Deportes have been talking about this on Monday, with pundits saying they believe West Ham would be successful if making a new attempt.
That’s why River Plate are already looking for other options, with manager Marcelo Gallardo having a list of possible substitutes for Montiel.
It’s TNT Sports who covers the news, and they add a little bit of information about what happened in the January window.
West Ham tried to take Montiel on a loan deal, which would include a buying option to get him for €10m.
They add that River Plate’s board now ‘don’t rule out’ the possibility that West Ham could come again in the summer, and that’s why they prepare for his possible departure.
