Former Chelsea striker Eto’o offered to West Ham
Former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o has been offered to West Ham United, but the 33-year-old is asking for wages in the region of £100,000 per week, according to the Daily Mail.
Formerly a Champions League winner with Barcelona and Inter, Eto’o joined Chelsea last summer and over the course of last season became their first choice striker. He made 35 appearances and scored 12 goals, including a hat-trick at home to Manchester United, but was released by the club at the end of the season.
Now a free agent, the Cameroon star has been offered to the Hammers, who are now keen to sign another striker after Andy Carroll was struck down by an ankle injury which will see him miss up to four months. They have already brought in Mauro Zarate, but manager Sam Allardyce is eyeing other targets including Eto’o.
The 59-year-old is keen on a loan move for young Arsenal striker Joel Campbell, who is also the subject of interest from Milan. The club has also opened talks with Portugal international Hugo Almeida, who is also a free agent after leaving Turkish club Besiktas. The East London club face competition from Germany and Portugal for his signing.
