A number of West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from The Sun over the weekend suggesting that the Hammers are preparing a big bid for Ismaila Sarr.
It would be no surprise to see David Moyes look strengthen his attacking options this month. The Irons were already lacking depth in the final third. And they have since sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax.
And it appears that Sarr is one player on his radar. In fact, according to The Sun, West Ham are preparing a £30 million bid for the Watford star.
The report added that it may come down to West Ham and Crystal Palace in the battle for Sarr’s signature. But of course, with the Hornets looking to secure promotion at the first time of asking, they are not going to allow him to go on the cheap.
The reports have been met by a mixed reaction on social media. Admittedly, there are plenty who believe that there is little chance of West Ham making a £30 million bid for Sarr.
The Hammers signed Said Benrahma on loan in the summer. And despite selling Haller since then, some fans doubt that they would have the funds to sign Sarr this month.
But there are several fans who have expressed their excitement about the possibility of the 22-year-old arriving at the London Stadium.
He looks to be a fantastic talent who can play in a number of attacking roles. And some clearly think that he would be worth the considerable outlay.
Here is how some of the fans have reacted to the reports…
Would be a good signing but we wont get him

So we have no funds but are willing to spend £30 mil on another midfielder when we have no strikers? Not sure that makes sense
