West Ham to Buy Benayoun?
The Daily Mail and Daily Telegraph are the first of the mainstream newspapers to bite at a rumour that has been floating around for a couple of days. They claim that West Ham have enquired about the availability and price of Yossi Benayoun.
Considering the competition for places down the right hand side at West Ham this rumour seems highly unlikely. The Mail claim Liverpool are desperate for cash, after splashing out for Keane, and still wish to buy Barry. While Curbishley is keen to appease disgruntled Hammers fans by making Benayoun a returning hero.
Again to me that sounds dubious. Curbishley is unlikely to buy a player just to please the fans.
