Some West Ham fans underwhelmed after transfer links with Alexis Sanchez
Some West Ham United fans were left underwhelmed after the club were linked with a transfer for Alexis Sanchez.
According to Estadio Deportivo, the Irons are battling Sevilla for the Internazionale ace’s signature.
The publication are claiming that the Italians want to sell the winger due to their current financial plight.
The Hammers were short of attackers last season with Sebastien Haller departing without a viable replacement.
Meanwhile, there’s no news on whether Jesse Lingard’s loan spell will be turned into a permanent transfer.
TBR View: Sanchez transfer unlikely for West Ham
After qualifying for the Europa League, there needs to be an injection of quality this summer.
In that regard, the Chile international would be the perfect addition. However, his wages and the size of West Ham are stumbling blocks for David Moyes’ men.
As mentioned above, Sanchez earns £6m a year, more than any other player at the club. His arrival would have to break the wage barrier at the club.
Furthermore, the size of a club like the Hammers is unlikely to appeal to the South American.
Here is how fans reacted to the links…

I honestly feel like Alexis Sanchez wouldnt bring any value. Giroud would be the right fit for the team!— Prochy (@Prochy86) June 2, 2021
