Djaniny Semedo might not be a name that many in the football world know about, however, that has not stopped West Ham United from taking note.
According to Portuguese media outlet A Bola, the Hammers are thought to be keen on the Al-Ahli Jeddah striker this summer after impressing for the Saudi Arabian outfit.
The 28-year-old, who is a Cape Verde international, has been in prolific form for his club this season, having managed to score 23 goals and providing eight assists in his 29 appearances.
West Ham need a striker that knows how to find the back of the net this summer. Although there might be doubts about what Semedo could actually bring to the London Stadium, it might actually be worth them taking the risk and trying to sign him.
Take Manuel Lanzini for example.
The Argentine was a relatively unknown quantity when he first arrived at the club, however, he turned out to become an influential figure for the side and has since become a favourite with the Claret and Blue faithful.
He was snapped up from a club playing in the Middle-East.
Obviously, it is difficult to say that Semedo could prove to be a success and turn out like Lanzini has, however, the Cape Verdean has every chance of being able to do so.
He has shown he can find the back of the net on a regular basis and if clubs like Wolves and Everton are also sniffing around, he must clearly have something about him to suggest that he will be successful in England.
West Ham fans, what do you think the club should do? Do you think Semedo could have the same success as Lanzini? Let us know below!
