There comes a time in every club’s existence where a player of quality comes along where, regardless of the price, you’d be crazy not to make a offer. Now I’m not condoning throwing millions around for players you don’t really need (Are you listening Chelsea?), but sometimes it’s ok to meet another club’s asking price. For West Ham, this should be one of those times.
The East London and West Essex Guardian is reporting that current boss, Alan Curbishley, has his eye on making Reading striker Kevin Doyle his first signing of the summer.

In my opinion, Doyle would be a perfect fit up front with recently-paid striker, Dean Ashton. He’s done more than enough during his time at his current club, and with Reading’s relegation, this seems like the best chance for West Ham to grab the Irishman.
Would West Ham supporters welcome a move for Doyle? Do you think £7.5m is a fair valuation for a player of his quality?
