West Ham United are reportedly looking to re-sign controversial Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez, according to the Daily Express.
A move back to Upton Park for Tevez would presumably be on loan, similar to the deal the Hammers were attempting to thrash out for Liverpool striker Andy Carroll this week and which was seemingly accepted by the Anfield club only for the England striker to shun the move.
West Ham’s owners would likely have to come up with a fee of around £25m if they want to secure Tevez, and though to many it might seem like an unlikely prospect, Tevez’s original move to West Ham was itself considered a shock transfer at the time.
In his previous tenure with the club, Tevez proved an invaluable asset, scoring seven goals in his last ten games, before leaving for Manchester United, and then making the move to Man City. At City, he has racked up an impressive 57 goals from 101 appearances. However, the club’s manager Roberto Mancini may see him as not worth the trouble, after he refused to come on as a sub during a match against Bayern Munich last season, and infamously flew to Buenos Aires without club permission last year.
Though he has proven a reliable asset, his unpredictable personality may cause City to cut him loose. However, this provides little guarantee that Sam Allardyce will be the one to scoop him up if so.
