According to reports in the Daily Mail, West Ham United are lining up a surprise £120,000 bid for Lincoln City defender Sean Raggett this summer, but Irons fans are not impressed.
The Hammers are said to be ready to give the Non-League star an opportunity in the Premier League as Slaven Bilic looks to strengthen his defensive options.
The 23-year-old centre-back impressed during Lincoln’s impressive run to the FA Cup quarter-finals this season, as well as helping them secure promotion back to the Football League by winning the National League title.
West Ham supporters were quick to have their say on the link to the 6’5” centre-half via social media, and many were quick to mock the interest in him by sarcastically saying that Real Madrid and Bayern Munich also wanted to sign him, while others said that his fee would use up all of their summer transfer budget.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
