West Ham: ExWHUemployee reveals fresh Darwin Nunez twist

West Ham United are still attempting to tie up a deal to bring Darwin Nunez to the London Stadium on transfer deadline day.

What’s the talk?

That’s according to a claim made by ExWHUemployee, who stated in a post on The West Ham Way that, despite David Ornstein’s recent report suggesting that the 22-year-old has rejected a move to East London, the Hammers move for the centre-forward is very much alive.

In his post, the Irons insider said: “As of last night we do not believe a bid has been accepted by Benfica for Nunez. We actually believe they are likely to reject it and that we could go back in for him if they did.

“Therefore, reports at the moment that the player has rejected the deal are probably based upon the fact that a deal hasn’t been accepted. It is easy for the player to reject a deal and appear loyal if there is no deal to reject.

“Believe me, a number of our players over different eras and windows have used that tactic. I believe we are still trying to get the deal done, although as said before, I can’t see it happening.”

Do you think Nunez will join West Ham today?

Fans will love Ex’s update

Considering just how talented a player Nunez quite clearly is, in addition to the fact that West Ham are in desperate need of backup and competition for Michail Antonio in the centre-forward role, Ex’s update that the Uruguay international has not rejected a move to the London Stadium is sure to be one that Hammers fans love.

Indeed, the £28.8m-rated centre-forward has been in remarkable goalscoring form for Benfica so far this season, having bagged 15 goals and registered two assists over his 16 Liga Bwin outings, scored three goals over six Champions League appearances and netting two goals over three fixtures in the Taca de Portugal and the Allianz Cup – taking his total haul to 20 goals and two assists in just 25 games.

As such, should West Ham manage to get a last-gasp deal over the line for the £31k-per-week sensation prior to Monday’s transfer deadline, he would undoubtedly be a signing who could fire the Irons to a top-four finish in the league this season – an outcome that would represent a remarkable achievement for Moyes and his side.
