Redknapp believes that only themselves, rivals Arsenal and big spenders Liverpool are the teams leading the race for the signing of Parker.
“Well, he’s a good player, a top player, Footballer of the Year this year.” Redknapp said.
“I’m sure people are going to be interested in Scott. I know a couple of other clubs are interested, big clubs, but we’ll wait and see.
“Which clubs? Arsenal, Liverpool. I think they’re big clubs in for him. That’s the rumours anyway, that’s what I hear, so it will be hard.”
Redknapp also confirmed his intent to sign Eden Hazard from Lille and, of the twenty year old, said “
Yeah, I like him.
“I watched him this week. He is a good player, but it’s difficult because there are some good players in this country that I like.
“There’s a few lads over here I would like to go for if we can make some openings. we need to make openings first.”
West Ham captain Parker has been at Upton Park since 2007.
