Does Roy Hodgson know something we don’t? After all, if the Daily Mail are correct with reports that he wants to sign Bobby Zamora for the princely sum of £6.5million, surely this would be a gamble and a half on a striker who’s not exactly cut the mustard at Premier League level.
Fulham are close to agreeing a staggering £6.5million fee for West Ham striker Bobby Zamora as replacement for departed skipper Brian McBride.
Zamora, 27, will tie up the move subject to a medical and personal terms being agreed in a deal which is also likely to include full back John Pantsil, who has long been surplus to requirements.
The Hammers aren’t known for their expertise in the transfer market – dishing out massive salaries to crocks like Dyer and Parker – although this would surely be a smart piece of business, offloading someone who is no more than a squad player.
Fulham fans, surely you’ll have another relegation scrap on your hands if Zamora is your main striker?
