Some fans of West Ham United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed a report claiming that the Hammers are leading the race for the January signing of Stade Reims striker, Boulaye Dia.
According to 90min, West Ham are among a number of Premier League sides keeping tabs on the £7.2 million-rated 24-year-old, who has already scored nine goals in 14 Ligue 1 appearances so far this season.
However, despite reported interest from teams such as Arsenal, Everton, West Bromwich Albion, Sheffield United and Newcastle United, 90min claim that David Moyes’ side are in ‘pole position’ to land the Senegal international.
And, after this report was relayed on Twitter by West Ham News, fans of the club flocked to have their say on the club’s link with Dia, with many claiming that the forward reminds them of Michail Antonio in terms of his playing style, while others simply stated their belief that the club should do all they can to land the striker.
Do you think Boulaye Dia would be a good signing for West Ham?
So, what exactly did these West Ham United fans have to say in reaction to their club’s link with Boulaye Dia?
Seen him a few times for Reims. Can finish with both feet and has mad acceleration which catches a lot of defenders by surprise. Somehow seemed to get lucky quite a lot because of how powerful a runner he is. Would fit out style well imo pic.twitter.com/Xetg8alUwy

Yeah I do really like the look of him.
He’s fast, physical , bit similar to Antonio but think he’s better.
He’s a big handful.
I would be pleased think he will do well.

He looks like Antonio. Sign him! https://t.co/8oEZag7r4n

Good player. Very quick and powerful, likes to run in behind similarly to Antonio. Can finish with both feet and has good vision.
Perfect option to have and would adapt very quickly to the PL. Get it done https://t.co/fYE1bCBsHj

Senegalese Striker from the French League? Diafra Sakho 2.0 Sign Him Up https://t.co/RGVqIGq07b

Very similar to Antonio and better than both him and King, hope there’s some actual truth in this one. Potentially a great buy
