West Ham: Irons still interested in Terem Moffi transfer
West Ham United are still interested in signing Terem Moffi, and they remain in contact with his agent, according to a report from Football Insider.
The Lowdown: Missed out in January
West Ham were linked with a move for Moffi throughout the January transfer window, at one stage having an offer on the table for over a week, however they did not manage to get the deal over the line.
The striker agreed to join Nice on an initial loan with an obligation to buy deal, with the Hammers instead bringing in Danny Ings, however the Englishman injured his knee on his debut, and faces several weeks out.
The Latest: Interest remains…
As per a report from Football Insider, the Irons will remain in contact with the Nigerian’s agent in the coming months, despite the fact he is due to sign permanently for Nice in the summer.
It is detailed that West Ham were in pole position to sign the forward at one stage back in January, and it now appears as though they could get another opportunity to do so at the end of the season.
The Verdict: Get it done?
It’s bizarre that the 23-year-old continues to be linked with a move to the London Stadium, considering he has already put pen to paper on a deal with a different club, but if he is available come the summer, then it is a move West Ham should definitely pursue.
The Calabar-born marksman has 12 goals in 20 Ligue 1 games this season, managing to score against the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and AS Monaco, highlighting that he would be able to perform against some of the top teams in the Premier League.
Hailed as ‘explosive’ by members of the media, Moffi is at the right age to be a long-term success at the London Stadium, as opposed to Ings, who is now 30-years-old, and David Moyes should continue to monitor his availability for the rest of the season.
