Although the transfer window doesn’t open until the summer, speculation in the media this morning infers that the Hammers could be set to re-jig their strike-force.
According to the good folk of the popular news source, the Sun, the Hammers are interested in bringing Allasane Plea to the club.
Plea, 25-years-of-age, is a former France U21 international who is currently on the boos of the La Ligue club, Nice.
However, our source indicates that Nice are in no rush to sell and any pursuit of the player could cost the Hammers as much as £25 million.
Continuing on a striker theme, the same source, the Sun is implying that the Hammers career of our January transfer window signing, Jordan Hugill, could be a short one.
The striker, signed for £9 million from Preston North End, has failed to make the desired impact at the London Stadium and could be either loaned out this summer or moved on in a permanent move.
Here at Vital West Ham we’ll keep a watchful eye out for any further developments on the above subject matter and report back as deemed necessary.
