Potential consequences of West Ham signing Dolberg

Potential consequences of West Ham signing Dolberg

West Ham United managed to get the better of London rivals Fulham last night in the Premier League, which has put them back in contention for a European place. 

The Hammers showed plenty of promise last night and they’ll be extremely pleased to have Manuel Lanzini back in their ranks, as he could play a big part from here on in until the end of the season.

Interestingly, it appears as if the London club are eyeing a possible summer swoop, as according to Calciomercato (via HITC), West Ham United are interested in signing Ajax’s Kasper Dolberg.

Of course, securing the services of Kasper Dolberg would be great for a club like West Ham United, so here are the potential consequences of signing the forward…

DAVID GOLD AND DAVID SULLIVAN BOLSTER ATTACK

David Gold and David Sullivan managed to pull off a number of incredible transfer moves back in the summer transfer window as the club secured the likes of Issa Diop, Felipe Anderson and Lukasz Fabianski.

So, the pair could make another great purchase by moving in for Dolberg, but they may have to splash the cash once again as the Denmark international is valued at £15.3 million (by Transfermarkt).

He would provide more quality at the pinnacle of the attack, which is desperately needed at this moment in time, despite last night’s victory. The 21-year-old has plenty of potential and all the attributes to succeed in the Premier League, and he could definitely provide the finishing touch that has gone missing for the Hammers as he currently has 10 goals to his name.

JAVIER HERNANDEZ LEAVES

Javier Hernandez managed to get himself on the scoresheet last night against the Cottagers at the London Stadium, but it’s safe to say that he’s still leaning towards a summer exit and football.london reported that he could be on the chopping block at the end of the current campaign.

Indeed, he’s been inconsistent to say the least as he’s failed to provide support for Marko Arnautovic at times, as well as squandering vital opportunities, so bringing in another striker in the form of Dolberg would surely force the club into selling him as he would fall even further down the pecking order.
