As per TEAMtalk and journalist Graeme Bailey, West Ham United have set their sights on Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette as a pretty promising transfer update comes to light.
The Lowdown: Hammers in striker chase…
The Hammers have been chasing a new striker since club record signing Sebastien Haller left the club for Ajax in January 2021.
David Moyes has been linked with moves for forwards since then as the summer window lingers.
TEAMtalk journalist Bailey, sharing some news, has a pretty big development.
The Latest: Bailey shares big Lacazette update…
According to the reporter, West Ham are ‘ready to offer’ Gunners forward Lacazette a deal ahead of the summer window.
The Frenchman’s contract is set to expire in June as things stand with GSB and recruitment chief Rob Newman allegedly looking to take full advantage.
As well as this, Bailey claims the Irons are ‘looking at a multi-year offer’ for Lacazette which ‘puts them in the driving seat for his signature’.
The Verdict: Promising claim…
After a slow start to the 2021/2022 season, Arsenal’s frontman has improved since then, being directly involved in ten goals since mid-November (Transfermarkt).
When asked how important Lacazette has been for the Gunners, teammate and defender Kieran Tierney claimed he is ‘absolutely massive‘ – potentially backing why West Ham are so keen.
Scoring 54 and assisting 30 English top flight goals overall, the 30-year-old could be an astute option for Moyes on a free given he is already proven in the Premier League.
