United Face More Ibrahimovic Competition; West Ham Confirm Interest



West Ham United co-owner David Sullivan has revealed the club want to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

“We have a list of strikers all over Europe and most of our money will go into signing a striker,” Sullivan told talkSPORT. “That is the plan for next season.

“I’d love Ibrahimovic from PSG but whether he’d come to us I don’t know. I know he’s 34 and he’s a fantastic player.

“There are a number of top Premier League players we may be bidding for, top goalscorers, but I can’t name them. I can’t comment on players from other teams.

“The squad we have at West Ham now is the best we’ve had in six years, by a long, long way. We will be adding to that squad in the summer and hopefully we’ll be a bit better next year.”


Manchester United were considered the front-runners in the race to acquire the services of Ibra, but then it was revealed that the mercurial Swede could be prioritizing the chance to live in London. Arsenal have also been talked about as one of the favorites to acquire Ibrahimovic, and you also have now throw Chelsea into the mix.

And of course today you throw West Ham into the mix; that’s an interesting possible destination.
