Sky Sports reported on Tuesday that West Ham United have been offered Edin Dzeko - and some fans are loving it.

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini managed the Roma marksman at Manchester City once upon a time.

And the 33-year-old, who won two Premier League titles at Eastlands, might be on his way back to England, if the Hammers accepted the reported offer to sign him.

The Irons only have a handful of striking options but, apart from Marko Arnautovic, none are overwhelming, with Javier Hernandez and Andy Carroll there.

 

But some West Ham fans on Twitter would love to see the Bosnia & Herzegovina marksman in East London as their competition next term.

Here's how they reacted:

Dzeko, who is contracted to the Italian giants until 2020, has netted only eight goals in 27 Serie A outings this season.

He might be winding down a little, but few would argue that he isn't still a better striker than Carroll and Hernandez.
