'You're having a laugh', 'Pass': Some West Ham fans react as Premier League rivals demands £25m for 29 y/o

Some West Ham United fans were reacting to a report over Burnley’s asking price for a transfer for Chris Wood.

According to The Mirror, the Clarets are demanding more than £25m for Wood. The publication is claiming that the Lancashire outfit want more than the fee they got for Michael Keane when he moved to Everton.

However, the Irons are competing alongside Aston Villa, Everton and Crystal Palace for the striker.

Wood was in brilliant form last season, scoring 12 times in the Premier League. It was the fourth time in succession the New Zealand international hit double figures in the top-flight.

Meanwhile, Michail Antonio was the Hammer’s top scorer with 10 goals last year.
