Report: West Ham to rival Everton and Arsenal for Boulaye Dia

West Ham United have been scouting Arsenal and Everton linked striker Boulaye Dia ahead of the January transfer window, according to Eurosport.

The Reims talisman appears to be a wanted man after his nine-goal haul in Ligue 1 this season.

Le10 Sport have linked Everton and Arsenal with a move for the player who could be available for as little as £10 million.

West Ham have Sebastian Haller currently spearheading the attack and his scored a superb acrobatic effort in a midweek draw with Crystal Palace.

The Hammers have sent scouts to watch Dia this season and could look to strengthen their attacking arsenal.

Dia is a product of the youth academy and has scored 21 goals in 64 appearances for the French outfit.

He also has three caps for Senegal and his powerful presence could give West Ham something different in attack.

Reims are suffering near the bottom of Ligue 1 and they won’t want to offload their main goalscorer.


Nonetheless, money could talk and with three sizeable Premier League clubs interested, they could be powerless to prevent a departure.

TBR View – Signing Dia seems like a no-brainer for West Ham

The Hammers aren’t exactly flush with cash and David Moyes will need to remain shrewd with his spending.

With that in mind, signing Dia for a fee in the region of £10 million could prove sensible business.

The 24-year-old would perhaps be wise to choose the Hammers too.

With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Dominic Calvert-Lewin in place at Arsenal and Everton respectively, first-team football might be hard to come by.

Opportunities would be forthcoming more frequently at West Ham and the signing could prove a match made in heaven.
