West Ham Send ‘Begging Letters’ To Premier League Top Six Asking For Players

West Ham have reportedly sent ‘begging letters’ to the Premier League’s top clubs ahead of the January transfer window, according to The Telegraph.
It is believed that West Ham are in the market for a striker and two defenders. Although, with the recent news of Diafra Sakho’s injury, another striker could be targeted.
Despite recent wins against Burnley and Hull, there is no doubt that the Hammers season has not gone as planned. In order to make sure they continue their run, Billic is looking to bring good quality players into his side during the January transfer window.
To ensure that the players they bring in are quality, the Telegraph have reported that the club has sent begging letters to the Premier League’s elite. Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United have all been sent these begging letters in hope that they pity the underachieving side.
Slaven Bilic is said to be keen on forwards Michy Batshuayi (Chelsea), Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool), Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial (Manchester United). The Croatian is also keen on Sunderland defender Lamine Kone as he looks to bolster his defence. The Ivorian is thought to have a release clause of £25 million.
