Report: West Ham now seriously considering signing player knocked out by England at Euro 2020
West Ham United are now giving serious consideration to going after Roman Yaremchuk after his stellar Euro 2020 tournament, EuroSport report.
Yaremchuk led the line excellently for Ukraine at the tournament before they were beaten by England at the quarter-final stage last weekend.
The striker scored two goals in five matches, and West Ham are now said to be keen to make a move for him.
Yaremchuk currently plays at Gent, so he is unlikely to be the most expensive of strike targets.
An ideal fit
But with David Moyes side on the hunt for a new number nine, he appears to tick a lot of boxes in what they would want.
Yaremchuk possesses good size, but he is also a hard worker, and proved that he has enough pace to run in behind teams.
All those attributes are key for Moyes, who typically likes strikers to hold up the play.
West Ham’s only real other striking option is Michail Antonio, and with European football on offer signing a goalscorer will surely be one of the club’s top priorities this summer.
Yaremchuk notched 20 goals in the league last season, which proves he knows the way to goal.
And if West Ham were to make an approach he would have to be considered an exciting target, after his excellent European Championships.
