West Ham fans think they’re signing Bernard after agent’s update

West Ham fans have been reacting to a rather strange social media post from the agent of Brazil international Bernard, who showed off a picture of the London Stadium on his Instagram story.

It’s been a pretty mad week or so for West Ham fans, as not too long ago fans were anxious over filling the Manuel Lanzini void, being short at the back and having little to no technical ability in the middle of the park.

Fast forward a few days, and the Hammers have added an experienced international winger in Andriy Yarmolenko, signed the supremely gifted Jack Wilshere on a free transfer, and are expected to add Felipe Anderson to this weekend’s signing of Fabian Balbuena.

That might not be all though, as the heavily linked Bernard is still a free agent, and his agent stunned fans on Friday by posting a picture from inside the London Stadium.

Bernard is available on a free transfer after opting not to renew his contract with Shakhtar Donetsk, and fans were desperate to sign him when his wage demands of £50,000 a week were revealed.

Football London writer Sam Inkersole has suggested the player’s agent may be in London as part of the deal for Lazio’s Anderson, but he is not Anderson’s agent, so it is all rather bizarre.
