West Ham United FC in talks to sign Valeri Bojinov

It might seem ludicrous but West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce already finds his job as manager of the club under threat following the Hammers’ dramatic 1-0 loss at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur on the opening day of the 2014/15 Premier League campaign.

Allardyce certainly does not share the best of relationships with the Hammers faithful and the fans are certainly not hesitant to express their displeasure at the presence of ‘Big Sam’ as their manager at the first sight of things not going according to plan.

While the criticism labeled at Allardyce’s direction certainly seems very harsh, there is little the 59-year old can do about it and the only way he can silence his doubters is through producing good results on the pitch allied with an attractive brand of football.

In order to implement a more fluent style at the Boleyn Ground, Allardyce has already made a splash in the transfer market this summer to recruit the services of Enner Valencia and Mauro Zarate but to add more flair in his side, it has now emerged that the Hammers are now looking to sign former Manchester City striker Valeri Bojinov.

Bojinov had only joined Levski Sofia in January this year but has a get out clause present in his contract with the club and the Bulgarian side’s director Georgi Ivanov has now confirmed that the striker has traveled to England in order to discuss a move with West Ham.

Ivanov was speaking to Bulgarian national radio and said, “We had to let him go because we have an agreement. I allowed him to travel to England because I am contractually required to do so. But he remains a Levski player until he signs with another team.”

Bojinov was regarded as one of the finest young players in Europe during his teens after bursting into the scene with Italian side Leece at the tender age of 15 – even drawing comparisons with his contemporary Wayne Rooney at the time.

However, after a very promising start, the striker was never able to fulfill his immense potential despite playing for the likes of Fiorentina, Juventus and Manchester City among others.

Still only 28, Bojinov certainly has a couple of good years left in him and the potential move to West Ham United could be the opportunity for the Bulgarian star to prove his worth at the highest level.
