West Ham fans react as club is linked with move for Cristian Pavon

According to TEAMtalk, West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini is keen to bring exciting Boca Juniors forward Cristian Pavon to the London Stadium this summer, and Irons fans have been quick to have their say on the rumour.

TEAMtalk report that the 22-year-old, who has been named in the Argentina squad for the Russia World Cup, is keen on a move to London, with the east London outfit, who should launch a bid for a £70,000-a-week Newcastle United star if the Magpies complete a deal for a 21-year-old, hopeful that they can get a deal for him over the line.

Pavon, who can play on either flank, scored seven goals and provided a further 17 assists in 31 appearances in all competitions for Boca during the 2017/18 campaign, and would provide competition for the likes of Manuel Lanzini and Michail Antonio – and potentially new addition Felipe Anderson – for a starting spot under Pellegrini next term.

West Ham supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the rumour, and while one said “he reminds me of Dybala”, another labelled him as “Jonathan Calleri Mk 2”.
