West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan has told Claret and Hugh that he is not forcing David Moyes to sign Liverpool striker Divock Origi.
Sullivan has now responded to the claims, insisting they are far from the truth.
The Irons chief told C and H: “This is simply not true.
“I’m appalled by misinformation being given as fact.”
Sullivan admitted on talkSPORT in September 2020 that he “bullied” former manager Manuel Pellegrini into signing Issa Diop and Lukasz Fabianski, and while Rob Newman has since been brought in as Head of Recruitment, it appears the Hammers chief still has eyes on a player he wants.
It will be interesting to see which striker West Ham end up signing, but whether Origi can provide Michail Antonio with the type of quality cover and competition the Jamaican hitman needs remains to be seen.
They need to get that particular decision right as the choice of who they end up with could make or mar their top-four chances, and Sullivan and the other board members need to back Moyes once he submits his winter transfer targets.
