HYS: Should West Ham sign Liverpool’s Lazar Markovic?

Amid a campaign that can end at best with a top half finish and at worst with a late slump into the relegation battle, West Ham fans probably can’t wait for 2017/18 to come around.

It’s certainly not been a stellar year for the east London club at their new ground and signings will be needed in the summer if the Hammers are to start claiming the results worthy of 60,000 seater stadium.

Due to David Gold and Jack Sullivan’s ever-loose tongues, West Ham fans are never short of gossip in the transfer columns, and the latest reports claim Irons boss Slaven Bilic is eyeing Liverpool’s out-on-loan winger Lazar Markovic.

The Serbian international has come into an improving Hull City side since arriving in January, but has he really done enough to warrant the £16m bid mooted by The Sun? And is he really the kind of signing who would take West Ham forward?

Football FanCast reckon he could have the exact opposite effect, so we’d like to open the discussion to our Hammers readers. Let us know whether you would or wouldn’t back a deal for Markovic by voting in the poll below.
