Soccer – Bilic rules out Lacazette move

Slaven Bilic says he will definitely not be bringing Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette to West Ham United before the transfer window closes. However, although Bilic will not be signing the 25-year-old France international, he is on the verge of sealing the capture of Jonathan Calleri from Deportivo Maldonado. Argentinian striker Calleri is set to move to the Hammers when his participation in the Rio Olympics comes to an end. "One hundred per cent we will not go for Lacazette," Bilic said. "We will sign Calleri and he will be with us pretty soon, depending on the work permit. "He is a top striker and we have a good balance in the squad." West Ham are 18/1 with bet365 to beat Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford Bridge on Monday in their first Premier League game of the season, while Andre Ayew is 3/1 to be their top scorer in 2016/17.
