Papers are saying West Ham want to do a swap with Lanzini but I would have thought the situation with the TV deals there means clubs will need cash.

Aren’t West Ham struggling for cash? And they need a forward

They’ve sold Haller to Ajax so could have some cash.

Albeit for a third of the money they paid Frankfurt for him 18 months ago.

They probably still owe more than they got for him.

If West Ham have any money to spend, I would think they'd prioritise the defence to be honest.

Made me laugh the other day when some bullshit football rumours site was saying that they were in for Moussa Dembele to replace Haller and that he was deciding between them or Atletico Madrid. Must have taken him a really long time to make that decision.

West Ham is a strikers graveyard. The list of failed expensive signings they’ve had in recent years is mind boggling.

How much is he likely to cost? The type of player we'd miss out on signing to West Ham (still sore over Bowen - he would be great in this Villa team).

I saw 20m but he's in last 18 months of his contract there so reckon we can get him for less.

His name was linked to us last summer so think we've been watching him for a while and the sort we should be signing to try to take the next step, mid 20s, regular for a good level team in other league (was regular for them in CL) and looking at his goal record he's not just a DM, tends to score at least five a season so this is why you upgrade the squad. Sign him and move on Hourihane and Nakamba in next 6 months.

I think Antonio is their only striker isn't he? A striker will be high in their priorities.

The London media are so short-sighted. Just look at how many players Arsenal are being linked to this window. Anyone would think they have a fortune available to spend when clearly they don't. There's probably never been a bigger divide between the 'haves' and 'have nots' in football than there is right now.

They're after a player from Benfica who plays up top.

You would have thought West Ham would go for a striker over any other position but it’s pretty much guaranteed that they won’t get sucked into a relegation fight & Gold/Sullivan won’t spend if they don’t have to....no doubt they will make a good chunk in summer selling Rice to Chelsea too

They have just recorded their 4th clean sheet in a row. What makes you think that?

Diop was being quoted at 40m a season back and he can't even get in at CB at all this season so they have much better depth at CB than us considering they've been tucking Cresswell in as third CB for many games this season.

Though they've been chasing Tarkowski haven't they?

Yeah, but they just wanted to 'tax' his tie and take his dinner money, not sign him.

Some suggestion the Morgan Sanson deal may be edging closer and also would explain why Conor maybe heading out to make room in the squad.
