West Ham eyeing player who “impressed” Guardiola?

Cornet is an exciting player who was reportedly on the radar of Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola back in 2018.

“I was very impressed by the talent of Maxwel Cornet,” Guardiola said after the player scored a brace in a 2-2 draw in November 2018.

However, Cornet’s place in the Lyon team is now under threat.
