West Ham fans are absolutely loving the latest transfer news, as reports claim the Hammers will make another bid for Jamaal Lascelles.
It’s been a bit of a crazy few days for West Ham fans. At this point last week, fans were losing faith in the Felipe Anderson deal, worrying this summer could turn into yet another disappointing transfer window.
Just a few very long days later, Manuel Pellegrini has reinforced his midfield with the signing of Jack Wilshere, added to his attack with a surprise deal for Andriy Yarmolenko, and could yet even sign Lazio’s Anderson as well.
The cherry on the cake though might just be Lascelles, who was an absolute beast for Newcastle last season.
The 24 year-old was unlucky to miss out on Gareth Southgate’s World Cup squad, and most of all he is an excellent leader, something that Pellegrini would love in his defence.
According to The Mirror, the Hammers are set to table a second bid for the Tyneside star after their £25m punt was rejected earlier this week.
The Magpies insist he is not for sale, but fans would absolutely love this one to go through, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
I love this guy I watched Newcastle a lot last season (my uncle supports them) and he’s quality so buzzing if we get him ! ⚒

We should offer Carroll or Antonio plus cash.

Would be our smartest defensive signing in our entire history.
That’s how much I rate him. https://t.co/riSixemonp

If we get him I honestly reckon we’d be able to flick him on for Van Dijk money in a season or two, so its a no brainer for the board to fork out the cash now
