West Ham have confirmed the signing of German under 19 international Savio Nsereko. He is a player well known to Hammers technical director Nani, who was with him at Brescia.
A fee of £7.5 million is a hell of a lot to pay for a player who has only 20 first team appearances behind him and scored a mere three goals. However, he was player of the tournament at the Euro Under 19s last year.
He’s only 5′ 9, so very much in the Craig Bellamy mould, but as well as playing up front, he is also at home playing on the wings.
I suspect he will be introduced to the team gradually, until he gets used to the style of playing. It’s important we don’t expect too much of him from the get-go.
UPDATE: Juventus have rubbished the Cole rumour.
