This is interesting. Matthew Upson had made noises during the close season about wanting to pursue a career at a top four level club so that he could further cement himself in the England international set up.
The likes of Man City has been sniffing around the 30 year old centre back and there were rumours that Upson’s former club Arsenal and Liverpool were interested. Now that a bid has reportedly come in for the Hammers man it will be interesting to see what happens next.
West Ham are in financial hardship at the moment and they may be forced to consider bids and the fact that the Serie A side managed to get past Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League qualifiers may well stand them in good stead with Matthew who could well be keen on pitting his wits against Liverpool and Lyon who are both in the Italian sides Champions League group.
