According to The Telegraph, West Ham United are considering a summer swoop for Stoke City midfielder Joe Allen.
And the London club’s supporters have been on social media reacting to the transfer report.
Allen has been in decent form for Stoke this season – scoring six times and registering three assists in 43 Championship appearances.
However, it would be fair to say that the West Ham fans are not interested in a summer deal for the Wales international, who turned out for Liverpool between 2012 and 2016.
At 29, Allen still has a good few years left in the game.
In this era of ‘big 6’ dominance, has finishing 7th become as good as winning a trophy? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have their say in the video below…
And he has proven in the past that he is more then capable of operating in the Premier League.
The West Ham fans are just not interested in a swoop for the midfielder, however, with many taking to social media to blast the transfer story.
