A player that Alan Curbishley has been chasing for a while just became a whole lot more likely!
WEST HAM are considering a £6million bid for Ghana skipper Stephen Appiah.
With Kieron Dyer injured again and Freddie Ljungberg off the payroll, the Hammers board are ready to sanction a move for the midfielder.
Former Juventus star Appiah, 27, is now with Fenerbahce but the Turks are ready to cash in.
Appiah was kept out of this year’s African Cup of Nations by a blood clot on the knee and would have to undergo a stringent medical before any move to Upton Park. (News of the World)
With Appiah’s Turkish club under new management in the form of Luis Aragones, it appears the Ghanaian is surplus to requirements. If West Ham can secure the strong midfielder for just £6m, then that would be an incredible bargain. Clearly he will have to prove his fitness and full recovery before becoming a Hammer but the former Juventus man is an awesome sight on his day.
The 27-year-old made a name for himself during his successful eight-year stint in Serie A and came to the attention of the world after his great displays at the 2006 World Cup. Such a signing could be the difference between a top-half finish and a UEFA Cup spot for the Upton Park outfit. Do Hammers like the idea of an Appiah signing?
