West Ham fans have been reacting to the reports emerging from TEAMtalk this week which have suggested that the Hammers are seriously interested in a move for Argentina forward Cristian Pavon this summer.
Manuel Pellegrini has already overseen one signing since taking over at the London Stadium, with Ryan Fredericks set to arrive when his Fulham contract expires. And he appears to have his eye on a marquee name for his second acquisition.
TEAMtalk adds that Boca Juniors would prefer to only consider selling the 22-year-old after the World Cup in the hope that his performances in Russia may drive his value up, but West Ham are hoping that Lanzini may be able to help tempt him towards the Irons during the coming months.
The news of West Ham's interest has gone down extremely well amongst the Hammers fans on social media. Many feel that Pavon is an extremely exciting talent and would be a fantastic signing for the club - even if a couple of supporters have only heard of him due to Football Manager.
Pavon is a highly-rated attacker and the fans believe that signing him would be a stunning statement regarding the direction that the club hope to go in under Pellegrini.
Here is some of the reaction to the reports...

Honestly if we are going for him we really need to get excited. I’m not sure how realistic it is though— Dave Lambourne (@Lambo1966) June 7, 2018
