The Hammers are reported to be interested in a number of Arsenal players, but their president, David Gold, seems very clear when he says that Jack Wilshere is not one of those.
We are interested in all good players but we have to face the facts here. We have got a good defence, we have got good midfielders, we have got good wingers. We need strikers and that is the key to everything for this season, so we are focused first and foremost on bringing in two strikers
the West Ham United boss said, explaining why the 25-year-old is not on their wish list.
It’s clear to most fans that we are desperate for centre-forwards. Andy Carroll is injury-prone as we know, we have had an injury problem with [Diafra] Sakho and we have just got to bring in centre-forwards. We have got to find the money
Gold insisted, avoided mentioning West Ham’s targets though.
[Co-chairman] David Sullivan is working day and night in an effort to solve this problem. Last season we actually flirted for some time with relegation because we couldn’t score goals
the West Ham president said. According to reports, the Hammers are interested in two other Arsenal players, Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott.
