West Ham should try one last time for Carlos Tevez as striker considers future after China disaster

Carlos Tevez - West Ham

West Ham United are desperate for a top striker this summer and it looks like Carlos Tevez could be on the move again.

The Hammers have made signing two top strikers a priority this summer after their failure to land a big name marquee forward last summer.

Slaven Bilic has been linked with moves for the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Kelechi Iheanacho, Michy Batshuayi, Onyekuru Henry and Olivier Giroud but it seems the club are no closer to adding to their solitary signing of Pablo Zabaleta so far this summer.

So should the club reignite a longstanding interest in bringing Hammers hero Carlos Tevez back to East London, and make the striker's wish come true at the same time.

Back in 2010, Tevez - then at Manchester City - told the Daily Mail: "Their (West Ham's) supporters feel football; they are passionate, these people invested great support in me.

"I wish to play again for West Ham before I finish my career. I have some unfinished business there."

A successful spell at Juventus followed before his long-awaited return to hometown club Boca Juniors, which was meant to be the place he would see out his playing days.

Then came the mega money offer from China which made the Argentine the highest paid player in world football.

But just six months into that deal the man who scored the goals which saw West Ham pull off the Great Escape in 2007 has admitted his future is up in the air.

Currently playing for Shanghai Shenhua, Tevez should be set for two lifetimes so money should not be an issue when he decides his next destination.

Since moving to China, the 33-year-old has scored just once in six Chinese Super League games with his side sitting four points above the relegation zone.

And Tevez admits he does not know what his next move will be, in an interview with TyC Sports.

"I left not to hurt Boca," Tevez said.

"Honestly, I do not know what I'm going to do at the end of the year.

"If I'm not hungry for glory, it's very difficult to stay in the club. I have to find myself to go back, I know I gave them everything."

Hammers co-owner David Sullivan revealed last year that he wanted to make Tevez the highest paid player in the club's history by offering the striker £150,000 per week to leave Boca and return for West Ham's Olympic Stadium adventure.

But Sullivan claimed the striker demanded £250,000 per week, a figure he felt was unreasonable, as reported by Sky Sports.

Instead West Ham ended up with Italian flop Simone Zaza on loan and the deal was cancelled less than halfway through so he could join Valencia.
