West Ham: Bids made for targets in France, Spain and Italy causing Michail Antonio doubt

Insider ExWHUemployee has revealed that West Ham United have now placed multiple bids for transfer targets in France, Spain and Italy.

What’s the word?

With the winter market now open, it looks as though David Moyes is looking to add some new depth to this ranks as his team looks to lift themselves out of the relegation zone.

Oddly, enough before Chelsea splashed out on the stunning £88.5m transfer fee to land Mykhailo Mudryk, the Blues tried to pick up West Ham forward Michail Antonio on a cheap loan.

That deal was rejected but it still sounds as though his future could be in doubt as the Premier League side potentially look to find an upgrade elsewhere in Europe this January.

Indeed, in a post shared on The West Ham Way’s Patreon page, Ex wrote: “The source confirmed that there are bids in for other players and some of these are also said to be players in foreign leagues in France, Spain and Italy. We will be looking to get concrete evidence of who these bids are for in time for the show tomorrow (Another should be Danjuma which we exclusively revealed last week, the Dutch attacker/winger).

“It is hoped that these new signings can bring a turn in fortunes and it will be interesting to see if they are brought in what the future holds for Antonio.”

New players arriving?

One of these players bid for looks certain to be Lorient and Nigeria striker Terem Moffi. Indeed, it was widely been reported that West Ham have made a £25m bid for the forward – as confirmed by Ex in the same post.

With that in mind, Moyes may well have lost faith in Antonio and when you look at his goalscoring stats it’s not that hard to see why the club may feel as though there is room for improvement.

Indeed, the Iron has netted just five times despite featuring in 25 matches so far this season. In comparison, Moffi has scored 12 goals in 18 games. Danjuma could also be an exciting target too, as he scored 16 goals last term as Villarreal made the Champions League semifinals.

And so, while that Chelsea loan bid was rejected, the Hammers may well be waiting until they can bring someone in first before then looking to offload Antonio. With Wolves also said to be interested, it looks as though the forward could be on this move this winter.
