Twitter Unconvinced by Rumours Linking Kelechi Iheanacho to West Ham

Twitter Unconvinced by Rumours Linking Kelechi Iheanacho to West Ham

Sky Sports News HQ delivered the ‘Breaking News’ that West Ham are interested in signing Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho this afternoon.

However, plenty of social media users remain unconvinced.

The Hammers spent much of last summer trying desperately to sign a striker and bolster their attack, however, they failed in their pursuits of both Jermaine Defoe and Scott Hogan.

It seems Slaven Bilic is keen to avoid such a repeat in the upcoming transfer window, with reports linking him with Iheanacho, who has spent much of this season as a back-up to Segio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus.

And while a move to sign a homegrown, young and hungry striker who is struggling for game-time would usually make a lot of sense, nobody is convinced that the Hammers can get this one over the line:

 

Would a deal for Iheanacho strengthen West Ham ahead of next season?

Or is signing the highly-rated Nigerian international another unrealistic transfer target?
