West Ham: Irons have offer on the table for Maxwel Cornet -West Ham News

West Ham United have put an offer on the table for Burnley winger Maxwel Cornet, according to journalist Fraser Fletcher.

The Lowdown: Cornet’s absence

The 25-year-old was not involved in Vincent Kompany’s squad for the Clarets’ opening Championship game of the season against Huddersfield Town on Friday.

The Belgian manager revealed that the Ivory Coast international was not at the ‘right physical level’ for the game, meaning he sat out for the 1-0 victory at The John Smith’s Stadium.

Cornet has been the subject of heavy transfer speculation since Burnley were relegated from the Premier League last season.

According to The Athletic, the winger has a £17.5m relegation release clause in his deal at Turf Moor.

The Latest: Fletcher’s news

Fletcher has shared an update on the transfer speculation surrounding Cornet.

Taking to Twitter, the journalist claimed:

“Maxwel Cornet future getting closer. Newcastle pushing for deal while Burnley and West Ham have offer on table now as winger looks set to leave as expected.”

Can you name all of these forgotten West Ham flops...who is this Allardyce signing?

The Verdict: Great signing

For the low fee involved, West Ham would be getting a proven Premier League goal-scorer in return if they signed Cornet.

The forward bagged nine goals in 26 top-flight appearances last season, scoring over a quarter of the Clarets’ campaign goals on his own.

After arriving at Turf Moor, journalist Andy Jones described Cornet’s debut for the club as ‘electric’, with the player having made a fantastic start to life adjusting to English football.

Should West Ham sign Cornet?

Yes

No

If David Moyes’ side are secure the Ivorian’s signature this summer, they will have to fend off competition from the likes of Newcastle, Everton and Nottingham Forest, making this a difficult signing for the East London club to pull off.
