Following the arrival of Sean Maguire, Marouane Chamakh and Joe Cole. Here’s a guide to West Ham’s potential signings this window.


Paul Robinson


The ex England ‘keeper has been constantly linked with a move away from Ewood Park since the Lancashire club were relegated in the summer. Sam Allardyce has been reportedly looking at improving the club’s goalkeeping options with only Stephen Henderson currently on loan at Ipswich Town. The 33 year old Blackburn Rovers player would certainly bolster the No.1 position.

Gaëtan Bong

West Ham are also being linked with a move for Cameroon international Gaëtan Bong. The 6′ defender, who was born in Sakbayeme, Cameroon, has made 10 appearances for his country. Bong started his pro career in France with Metz in 2006 before being loaned out to Ligue 2 side ours for the 2008/09 season.


Martin Olsson


Newspaper reports have stated that West Ham have had a £2m bid for Swedish left-back Martin Olsson rejected by Blackburn Rovers and we are currently looking to increase the bid by the end of the week. The 28 year old defender has been linked with a number of clubs this window and the player is reportedly looking for a move away from the ‘managerless’ club before the end of the month.  


Maynor Figueroa

Newspapers are also linking Sam Allardyce with a move for the Wigan Athletic’s Honduras international left back should he fail with a second bid for Olsson. The 29 year old left back is on Sam’s radar but it has been reported that ne may be forced to wait until the summer to complete the deal.

Etienne Capoue


French newspapers are reporting that West Ham are interested in midfielder and long term Arsenal target Etienne Capoue. There have been rumours that this Capoue may be seen as a replacement for Mohamed Diame should the Senegalese should move before the end of the month.

Juan Agudelo & Graham Zusi


Chivas USA forward Juan Agudelo and Sporting Kansas City midfielder Graham Zusi are both set to spend some time at Chadwell Heath, though it is unclear whether the arrangement is by way of a trial or simply an agreement between the club and MLS to keep the players fit during the American close season. Reports are suggesting that Zusi is on an official trial.

The 19 year-old Agudelo had a similar arrangement with Celtic before Christmas and in the past has also spent training time with Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund and, like Zusi, is expected to join the US national squad training camp next week

David Beckham


With Sam Allardyce neither confirming nor denying the arrival of David Beckham following the FA Cup match at the weekend rumours have been rife that the Boleyn Ground might be the former England captain’s next destination. 12 clubs are said to be keen on the player and it remains to be seen whether West Ham are one of them.

Wellington Paulista


Reports in Brazil suggest that striker Wellington Paulista is close to signing a loan deal. The winger/ striker was reported to be due to undergo a medical at the weekend, though some reports, including the official Cruzeiro website, have suggested that the 28 year-old striker has already completed the move!

    Looks like a minor technicality hear lads so calm down. Lol.

    Heard that BFS is only looking at the LB slot at the moment so we’ll wait on other positions.

    • nathan smith says:

      Strikers are great, more concerning is rumours of tomkins going to Newcastle, he is one for now and long term would rather sell Collins tomkins is faster fitter and has many years left in him plus he works well with Reid big Sam if you read this please keep him at Upton park!!

  • Phil the iron says:

    Why the hell is happening? Why oh why is there even a chance we are even considering letting tomkins leave?! Surely just paper talk? As he must realise that every team needs at least 3 centre halfs these days? Also he is class, he is west ham and he is the future of the club! In fact his future is nearly as bright as the club! Olympic!
