Having already announced the signings of Issa Diop and Lukasz Fabianski, to go with the signing earlier this month of Ryan Fredericks, could the Hammers be set to add another striker to their squad?

According to the popular tabloid publication, the Sun, that could very well be the case.

Our referenced source is inferring that West Ham United are vying with Burnley for the signature of the Senegalese striker Moussa Konate.

Konate, 25-years-of-age, is currently on the books of the French Ligue 1 side Amiens, for whom he scored 14 goals last year.

Rated at just £8 million, Konate could be persuaded to come to the London Stadium by his national captain, Cheikhou Kouyate, he’d also be following in the footsteps of several other Senegalese players who have worn our familiar shirt – Diafra Sakho, Demba Ba, Mo Diame and Abdoulaye Faye.

Here at Vital West Ham, we reckon Konate could be a decent signing, especially at the price mentioned. Whether he’d be able to make an instant impact remains to be seen but surely, he’d prefer to make a move to our neck-of-the-woods as opposed to the north-west of the country.

As is the norm, we’ll keep a watchful eye open for any further developments relating to a possible transfer and report back as deemed necessary.
