We can only imagine how Zlatan would respond to hearing Sullivan’s words…
West Ham United co-chairman David Sullivan has admitted his interest in bringing Swedish footballing legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the Hammers.
Zlatan will be out of contract at the end of this season after four years – and four Ligue 1 titles – with Paris Saint-Germain.
Speculation regarding Zlatan’s future if rife. Bookmakers Unibet make Manchester United – at 7/2 – the favourites to sign the 34-year-old this summer, with Chelsea (8/1), Arsenal (10/1), Liverpool (15/1) and Los Angeles Galaxy (17/1) also among his more likely destinations.
But Sullivan is ambitious and in the market for a new striker.
“We have a list of about ten 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.”
He added: “I know he’s 34 but 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.”
