It must be the most frustrating thing in the world to be a West Ham fan during the transfer window. Constant rumours, ill-advised comments from owners, transfer targets slipping away…all in all, it is just one big mess.
Unfortunately for Hammers fans, it looks as if they have missed out on another transfer target. Reports on Thursday suggested that Kelechi Iheanacho is on the verge of a £25million move to Leicester City.
West Ham had been in the chase for the Nigerian international for a number of months if rumours were to be believed and look set to miss out on one of their top summer targets.
It seems that Slavan Bilic refused to accept a clause in Iheanacho’s proposed contract that would have meant Manchester City could buy him back for a relative bargain.
Regardless, West Ham fans took to social media on Thursday to vent their frustrations at yet another missed opportunity to sign a talented striker…

This is a bad move if true. I really rate Iheanacho and he'd have improved West Ham a lot! #whufc

Both board and Billic should take heat for the Iheanacho debacle. We should have done our business properly and sealed the deal. Stupidity.

Kelechi Iheanacho NO Olivier Giroud NO. people thought it would be different this summer. It's our owners not our targets #whufc

West Ham sell out to season ticket holders…52,000 seats in the OS. Same day they pull out of deals for Iheanacho and Giroud….#WHUFC
