According to ExWHUemployee, West Ham United are currently working on summer deals for West Bromwich Albion’s Salomon Rondon and Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Rondon spent the 2018-19 season on loan at Newcastle United – scoring 11 Premier League goals during a strong campaign for the Magpies.
Mitrovic, meanwhile, also struck 11 Premier League goals during the recent campaign, but the powerful striker could not prevent Fulham from being relegated.
As it stands, both will play in the Championship next term, although it seems extremely unlikely that will be the case by the time that the transfer window closes.
When asked about West Ham’s transfer activity on social media, ExWHUemployee claimed that the Hammers were currently working on deals for Rondon and Mitrovic.
The London club’s fans have been on social media reacting to the claim and it would be fair to say that a number have differing opinions on the potential double swoop.

These don’t excite me, but will get behind whoever pulls on the shirt
