tennis player

West Ham has received disappointing news as Newcastle has reportedly agreed on a rapid £60m deal for AC Milan’s midfield star, Sandro Tonali. This development has a domino effect on West Ham’s transfer plans, particularly concerning their pursuit of a successor for Declan Rice.

Newcastle’s unexpected blow to West Ham with Tonali deal

Newcastle’s acquisition of Tonali has a direct impact on West Ham’s transfer strategy. With the funds received from Tonali’s sale, AC Milan now seeks to replace him with Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. Meanwhile, Savic is a long-standing target for West Ham. West Ham considered the Lazio and Serbian midfielder to be the ideal replacement for Rice.

Newcastle’s interference with West Ham’s transfer plans does not end there. The Magpies were even linked with a move for West Ham’s Lucas Paqueta, adding another layer of uncertainty. This was a strategic move to force AC Milan to offload Tonali, as per some reports. But anyways West Ham have some worries dealing with Newcastle.

Hammers’ need to pursue alternative targets

The news of Newcastle’s deal for Tonali forces West Ham to reassess their midfield rebuild plans. While the club has been linked with various others, none possess the skill set and all-around attributes of Rice and Milinkovic-Savic.

Players like Palhinha and Edson Alvarez excel defensively but lack the offensive prowess and ability to drive the team forward. West Ham manager David Moyes is carefully assessing alternative midfield targets. The setback caused by Newcastle’s move means that Moyes must identify players who can replicate Rice’s impact and possess similar qualities to Milinkovic-Savic, allowing the team to maintain their style of play and progression on the pitch.

Domino effect working wonders in football and West Ham are at prey this time around. The club now faces the task of identifying alternative targets who can replicate Rice. Fans eagerly await the outcome of this situation, while they enjoy their recent UEFA Conference league success.
