West Ham United have reportedly made an €8million (£6.8m) offer for Hatayspor forward Aaron Boupendza, according to Fanatik.
Boupendza made 38 appearances in all competitions for Hatayspor in the 2020/21 season, and chipped in with 22 goals and one assist, as they finished sixth in the Super Lig table.
It appears as though his strong performances in front of goal didn’t go unnoticed, with West Ham reportedly now keen on finalising a deal to sign the 24-year-old.
The Hammers finished sixth in the Premier League table last term, and are evidently keen to bolster their attacking options ahead of the new league campaign with European football to contend with as well – additional strength in depth is now a necessity for David Moyes.
Championship side Middlesbrough have also been credited with interest in signing Boupendza, although it remains to be as to which club is leading the race to land his signature at this stage.
Plenty of West Ham United supporters took to social media to react to the club’s rumoured interest in signing Boupendza this summer.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from the West Ham Transfers Twitter account, below….
“Joke of a club.”
“Would take Hugill at this point.”
“Let’s get an unknown cause they are cheaper.”
“Would rather go for Armstrong.”
“Doubt this is true. We’ve had seemingly 0 interest in signing a Striker since all these CB talks have taken priority.”
“Need a quality striker. Who is Boupendza?”
“Seems like we are down to our tier 3 striker options now.”
“He’ll reject us in favour of a move to Dagenham and Redbridge.”
