‘Don’t Want Him’ ‘Please Tell Me That’s A Joke’ Fans Not Happy About West Ham’s Bid For South American Striker

West Ham made a bid of £10m, plus Sam Byram and Jordan Hugill, for West Brom striker Salomon Rondon, according to reports in England.

The 29-year-old has a release clause of £16.5m and the Baggies are said to have rejected the offer.

Supporters on Twitter are not sure why the Hammers would be interested in Rondon:



Some believe fans should trust Pellegrini’s judgement:

It’s surprising that the Irons didn’t just match Rondon’s buyout fee, but it’s likely that the club are keen to offload a number of fringe players before making more expensive purchases.

Newcastle were favourites for the Venezuelan international but Rafa Benitez’s departure from St James’ Park has likely led to West Ham testing the waters.

Whether Manuel Pellegrini’s side will return with another bid for Rondon, it remains to be seen. Negotiations for another forward, Maxi Gomez, are also ongoing, but talks remain deadlocked on that front as well.
