Hammers looking to ditch Calleri, Sun say

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic wants to get rid of Jonathan Calleri, according to The Sun.

The Argentinean striker is currently out with a hamstring injury and could be unavailable for up to six weeks.

West Ham have been tipped to offload the likes of Simone Zaza, Gokhan Tore and Alvaro Arbeloa after they failed to impress since moving to east London.

And The Sun say Calleri, 23, is another player the club will be looking to move on when the transfer window reopens in January.

He has not scored or started a league match since being brought in on loan from Deportivo Maldonado in the summer.

‘A Hammers insider’ is quoted as saying: “Calleri is another player that could be outward bound this winter.

“The club have not fully made up their minds, but it is not looking good for him. He has just not settled.

“He has flopped in all honesty but came here under a lot of hype with claims he was the greatest thing to come from Argentina in years.”

Meanwhile, the Guardian say West Ham are planning a move for Callum Wilson and would be willing to pay up to £25m for the Bournemouth striker.
