West Ham United should go all out to win the race to sign Lille defender Sven Botman, according to Get French Football News’ Adam White.
Botman was thrown into the limelight after playing a key role as Lille beat Paris Saint-Germain to last season’s Ligue One title.
The central defender made 47 appearances last term and is on the wishlist of numerous clubs thanks to his impressive form.
Should West Ham firm up their interest in Sven Botman?
West Ham – along with Premier League rivals Crystal Palace, Newcastle United and Norwich City – are keen to sign Botman before the transfer window slams shut. Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Italian side Atalanta are also showing an interest.
Hammers boss David Moyes is eager to add strength in depth after guiding the east Londoners into the Europa League thanks to registering a club-record Premier League points tally last season.
He told The Transfer Tavern: “Botman has so much potential and he is very much suited to the Premier League.
“Given the price tags that a lot of Ligue One players fetch, he could become a real bargain. If he settles in well and progresses as he should, he could be worth double or triple what they sign him for in a year or two.”
