West Ham keen on former Premier League forward


Roque Santa CruzWest Ham are looking at the possibility of bringing Roque Santa Cruz back to the Premier League, reports Sports Direct News.

Following the collapse of Lacina Traore’s loan deal, the Hammers are in a race against the clock to bring in some much-needed reinforcements upfront, and it appears the Malaga striker could be the answer.

The 32-year-old only has four La Liga goals this campaign but has proved himself in the Premier League, notching 19 goals in his debut season for Blackburn Rovers.

At nearly 6 foot 3 inches, the Paraguayan will fit into Sam Allardyce’s style of play with ease.

    Your right Roy Pinky & Perky have very deep pockets and won’t give Sam the backing he needs. There hoping for a miracle to keep us up, we just don’t have enough quality to get the results we need. Do us true supports a favour Pinky & Perky pay up or down we go down, then maybe we will get a new owner who really cares about this club COYI

    News Flash West Ham interested in Ronaldo, Robin Van Persie and Luis Suarez. I am sure we are interested but who will come? Big Sam spotted walking the marshes on a Sunday morning.

  • pete says:

    We need strikers of proven PL quality and quick; if it is Cruz and Kuyt then good, we need to survive this season and give Sam 50+ mill in the summer. We also need a goalkeeper, Ceasar at QPR might be worth a punt.

    I felt let down in August and I am getting the same feeling now. Names names names but no signings anywhere.Dont want panic buys just a bit of hope!
