West Ham Target Silvestre
The Manchester Evening News say that West Ham are keen to sign Mikael Silvestre. Apparently Roma and Club America of Mexico are also interested in the French defender.
The paper say that Silvestre is looking for wages of around £60,000 a week. As Curbishley has been ordered to cut the wage bill at West Ham this could be a huge sticking point to any possible deal.
Silvestre also qualifies for a testimonial next year at Man Utd which may also encourage the player to stay put.
The News of the World as usual are on another planet. They say West Ham are set to pay £9m for Lazio right-back Valon Behrami of Switzerland.
