West Ham Suddenly in the Money
Sky claim that West Ham have had a £12 million bid turned down for 18 year old Brazilian striker Neymar. According to The Mail Neymar scored an incredible 27 goals in 30 games for Santos last season.
Santos sporting director Luiz Nunes Pedro Conceicao has confirmed that the club have turned down a £12 million offer for Neymar. Sky now say West Ham are preparing to return with an offer of £20 million.
Both Sky and The Mail also seem to be hinting that West Ham have some kind of dodgy deal with Chelsea that if they sign the player he would move to Chelsea after a season at West Ham.
It is very hard to see how West Ham can afford to spend £20 million on one player.
Sky also claim that West Ham are once again trying to sign West Brom midfielder Graham Dorrans. They say West Ham had a £4 million bid turned down in April and have now upped their offer to £4.5.
