Alan Curbishley, manager of the Iceland-owned England-based football (soccer) club West Ham, is reportedly interested in having Iceland’s star footballer, Eidur Smári Gudjohnsen, join his team next season.
Gudjohnsen currently plays for Barcelona.
Curbishley will meet with West Ham CEO Eggert Magnússon tomorrow and discuss the club’s future, ruv.is reports.
According to the Times, Curbishley will receive GBP 30 million (USD 59 million, EUR 44 million) for investing in new players for the team.
West Ham’s manger is allegedly also interested in recruiting Craig Bellamy from Liverpool and Scott Parker from Newcastle. About ten players are expected to leave West Ham before next season.
West Ham was in grave danger of being relegated from the Premier League, but managed to stay afloat with a 1-0 victory over Manchester United last weekend.
