West Ham fans have been reacting to reports that Alfie Mawson is close to joining Wolves, and they’re convinced they can find better value elsewhere.
The Hammers look all set to be one of the busiest teams in the transfer window this summer, with Issa Diop and Lukasz Fabianski already the newest members of Manuel Pellegrini’s squad.
While the injury to Manuel Lanzini will likely force at least one attacking signing, the focus of much of the new manager’s work will be at the back, where the Hammers were a bit of a shambles last season, especially away from home.
Diop should go some way to fixing that, but it definitely seems as though Pellegrini wants one more central defender, as both Mawson and Marlon Santos have been heavily linked with moves to the London Stadium.
According to recent reports though, newly promoted Wolves are not far behind the Hammers in the race for the Swansea defender.
Wolves have been moved into second favourites behind West Ham to secure the 24 year-old, who will almost certainly move after the Swans’ relegation.

Mate as ex said we can find better value for money than him, no loss

Who cares. He’s not worth the money. Better options out there rather than a player who wasn’t part of one of the worst defences last season. I’d rather have smalling.

Dont really care honestly. We got Diop, we already have Ogbonna, Rice can play there aswell so with a cheaper central back I think we would be sorted. Even Zaba can play there in case of need.
