West Ham Argentine forward Jonathan Calleri has opened up on his desire to be te next Carlos Tevez. The on-loan striker knows it may take time but eventually he wishes to tow the path of the Argentina fooball legend.

Calleri had an impressive run in his native country but has failed to make as much impact when he moved from Deportivo Maldonado. The 23-year old believes it is just a matter of time before he gets his acts right.

“I would love to follow in the footsteps of Carlos Tevez. He is a unique player and in Aregentina people still speak about what he achieved at West Ham and in England. When he was at Manchester City it was almost impossible for fans to get tickets - I only managed to see him because of! We all remember how he saved West Ham from relegation and I hope I can achieve just a quarter of what he achieved here,” Calleri told the club’s website.

The young player admitted that he has not been in his best form, and offered to do more.

“The fans have not seen the best of me just yet and I know I can give a lot more. The style of play here is very different and it can take a few months to settle in. I remember it took a while for Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano to settle in and then they did realy well. I am hoping that I can leave my mark at the club,” Calleri added, speaking genuinely of his wish to make impact in England.

He added that he loved the city of London, the sights and all despite the difficulty with the language and style of play. He said that he knows that when he is fully settled, he would be able to make the West Ham fans happy. With Andy Carroll, Diafra Sakho and Andre Ayew sidelined due to injury, the fans will be hoping that Calleri comes around sooner.
