According to results from our recent poll, the large majority of West Ham fans would not approve of a move for Everton’s James McCarthy despite their shortage of squad players in midfield.
The Hammers have seen their progress somewhat stunted as they lose a number of key men to injury, including summer signing Jack Wilshere, and are forced to improvise with what they’ve got – until now.
The January transfer window presents an opportunity to Manuel Pellegrini and co. to dip into the market in order to recruit some reinforcements and, so far, they have made good use of it by bringing in Samir Nasri on New Year’s Day.
However, they are apparently not done there – as reported by The Daily Mail, the Irons are exploring the possibility of a move for injury-prone enforcer McCarthy.
Our take on the reports was that he would be a poor signing, indicating that Mario Husillos has not learnt from the mistake made by signing the aforementioned and currently sidelined Wilshere.
It turns out that a whopping 82% of the claret and blue faithful agree with us – you can check out the full results of our poll below…
