West Ham Linked With - Everyone
The Independent has covered just about all bases today, linking West Ham with Gudjohnsen, Mark Bresciano, Giles Barnes, Nickey Shorey, Kieron Dyer, Nicolas Anelka and Yakubu. However the paper does say West Ham have dropped their interest in the last three and that the Barnes deal is not likely to happen.
They quote Eggert Magnusson as saying,
"There is no secret that we are interested in Giles Barnes. We also know that Derby don't want to sell at the moment."
The Independent repeat the news that Gudjohnson is keen to stay at Barcelona for another year and say that although West Ham have not given up hope of him arriving this summer he is a long term target for the club.
A rumour that I haven't heard before is that West Ham are now trying to buy the Australian midfielder Mark Bresciano whose £4m move to City has stalled. The Independent believes that West Ham have turned their interest to the Palermo player now that the Dyer deal has collapsed.
