West Ham Hoping To Snare Barcelona Starlet?

Reports are suggesting that West Ham will make an audacious January bid with the intention of luring Barcelona into parting with one of their many burgeoning starlets, namely 20-year-old forward Bojan Krkic.

After a series of impressive cameos last season, Krkic has found first team football hard to come by this campaign after Barca added David Villa to their ranks over the summer and is thought to be assessing his options at the Camp Nou.

However, both Chelsea and Juventus are said to also be interested in acquiring the young Spaniard – so it would seem that the laudably ambitious Hammers will be facing some heavyweight opposition for his signature.

Can’t see it myself. Whereas you’ve got to admire the sheer impudence of their ridiculously high sights, surely Gold et Sullivan stand no chance in fending off the big boys should Bojan decide to move on?

    I never thought Ben Arfa would come to Newcastle in a million years. Likewise Juninho at boro, Tevez and Mascherano to W.Ham, Podolski to Koln. Jedward have an album.
    Stranger things have happened.

  5. Ben says:

    Why all the haters? Because West Ham Utd is now a hip-hop group, apparently.

  6. dc says:

    regardless of the situation at west ham, bojan is a culé and would only “move on” if there was a really big bid to help barca financially or if a high profile club were to take him on loan. living in barcelona, i can tell you that bojan would much rather stay here and be second string at his HOME, which also happens to be one of the best clubs in the world, than get first team football at a club like west ham, no offense. also, he’s playing just as much if not more than years past– he’s started a few games this season but just hasn’t been in with the goals.

  7. dc says:

    also pep wouldn’t let his only backup to david villa (who hasn’t been in form lately and could get injured, more red cards, whatever) leave for west ham

  8. casino says:

    I thank you for this source of information really interesting for me even on the internet.

  9. poker says:

    It is so hard to play in the first 11 competing against Villa, Messi, but the value is raised day by day.

    I think for this talented younger player, Krkic, a team where is always present on the pitch will boost his career.
