Zaza zoom?

Numerous transfer rumours about West Ham, including the fact that we might be signing 99-year-old actress Zsa Zsa Gabor. Or perhaps striker Simone Zaza, whom the Guardian claims we want to sign from Juventus for £15 million. Sky Sports reports we're in negotiations to loan winger Gokhan Tore from Slaven Bilic's old club Besiktas. Talk Sport claims WHU are after FC Koln's French striker Anthony Modeste, presumably for a Modeste fee, while the Daily Express suggests West Ham have bid £31 million for Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette. There are also persistent rumours Diafra Sakho will be going and that various clubs are sniffing around Reece Oxford. How much of this is agent talk we just don't know but it's pretty clear we'll have an upgrade on Emenike to add to the squad next season. 

Meanwhile, as we've voted for Brexit, presumably West Ham will have to do their best to exit Europe after the two qualifying Europa League ties on July 28 and August 4. We've already had practice at doing this against FC Astra, of course. Onwards and upwards…
