According to a report from The Sun, West Ham will make a £30m move for Lyon striker, Moussa Dembele, as David Moyes looks to strengthen the ranks.
The Hammers are looking for a new striker it seems with Sebastien Haller still failing to get going in claret and blue. And with Michail Antonio still out, Moyes’ men limped to a 1-0 win against Fulham last night.
Dembele, then, appears to be the striker the Hammers are targeting. The Lyon man is currently frustrated at a lack of game time in France and is said to be open to a move away during January.
Manchester United are also said to have been interested in Dembele for some time. David Moyes, then, would no doubt love to pinch a signing ahead of his former club if he can.
Dembele has rattled in over 100 career goals in spells with Fulham, Celtic, and Lyon. Still only 24, the speedy striker has plenty to give and could well be looking to prove himself back in England after leaving as a teenager.
Just what West Ham need – TBR View
Haller just looks like he isn’t going to cut the mustard so signing someone of proven quality like Dembele would be a smart move.
Goals, speed, and potential to get even better, £30m doesn’t seem like too big a fee to pay for such a good forward.
West Ham need that other option for when Antonio isn’t around. Signing Dembele, would instantly solve that issue.
