“We want him to be an enormous half, we wanted someone to give you the products. We appeared for giant components of the sport we had been huffing and puffing however did not seem like we might get something.

‘Haller not the fitting match for West Ham’
Analysis from SSN’s Kaveh Solhekol:
“Haller is very close to joining Ajax. A £20m fee has been agreed, which is less than half the club-record £45m they paid for him 18 months ago.
“So why are they prepared to promote him? The quick reply is, he’s not the fitting participant for David Moyes and West Ham. Moyes needs a striker who can play up entrance on his personal, someone who will bust his intestine for the membership for 95 minutes each single sport. And Haller shouldn’t be that kind of participant.
“He had that incredible season at Frankfurt where he scored a lot of goals, but he was playing up front with Luka Jovic and Ante Rebic and he needs other forwards around him.
“That shouldn’t be the way in which Moyes performs, so it’s a good transfer for West Ham and Haller. Moyes thinks he can do higher and take that cash they’re getting for promoting Haller – though will probably be paid in instalments – and herald a striker who is best suited to the way in which he needs to play and who can present help for Michail Antonio.”
