Lots of West Ham fans urge club to sign Emil Forsberg after latest Sweden display

RB Leipzig attacker Emil Forsberg was the hero for Sweden as his deflected strike took helped his nation beat Switzerland to reach the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Cup, and lots of West Ham United fans have urged their club to sign the 26-year-old.


The winger, rated at £47m by his club, came to attention during the 2016/17 campaign when he announced himself as something of an assist king for the surprise German package, but despite a slightly disappointing season last time out he is making a big impact for his country in Russia.

His performances may well tempt a number of clubs to make a move for him this summer, and his record of 21 goals and 37 assists in 112 Leipzig games suggests he would have a big impact at somewhere like the Irons, who may well be looking for a Manuel Lanzini replacement this summer.

Many West Ham supporters, others of whom want to see their club swoop for a Liverpool outcast, were quick to react to Forsberg’s latest display via social media, and while one said “I want him at West Ham”, another said “go for Forsberg”.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
