West Ham Super Fans do not want club to sign Alexis Sanchez

West Ham have reportedly shown interest in signing former Manchester United flop Alexis Sanchez.
According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the Hammers are keen on bringing the Chile international back to the Premier League in January.
Currently plying his trade at defending Serie A champions Inter Milan, the player is not understood to be rated highly by the club hierarchy who are keen on offloading the 32-year-old.
Given his failed stints at his last two clubs, in addition to his high wages and age, many Irons fans have not taken too well to this transfer report.
Here’s what they said:
Let’s rule this one out
The only attacking position the Hammers need to strengthen is up top, a proper centre forward.
While Sanchez can play there, he prefers to operate from the left and then drift inside.
The Irons have players in that position who are younger, on significantly lower wages and certainly in better form than Sanchez.
A return to London may tempt the Chile international, but the Hammers should not be the club signing him as they do not need him.
If they have the free space needed to get Sanchez on their payroll, we would recommend going for Andrea Belotti, who is available for free at the end of the season.
Hopefully, the reported interest in Sanchez fizzles out and the Hammers start looking elsewhere.
The January window is not too far away and the club must narrow in on one particular striker and do everything they can to secure his services before the end of the month.
