West Ham United: David Moyes could land ‘bargain’ signing in Reims striker Boulaye Dia

West Ham United: David Moyes could land ‘bargain’ signing in Reims striker Boulaye Dia - West Ham Transfer Rumours

Speaking to Football Insider, Danny Mills has claimed that West Ham United could land a ‘bargain’ signing in Boulaye Dia – with multiple sources stating that GSB have commenced negotiations for the in-form forward. 

Eurosport journalist Dean Jones originally broke that the Hammers had opened contact to sign Dia, later claiming that GSB were ‘ready‘ to pay £15 million.

When those reports died down, journalist Ekrem Konur reignited the fire by stating that West Ham actually offered around £8.9m with Reims demanding closer to £15m – but his desire to play in the Premier League could ‘strengthen’ GSB’s hand (Twitter).

Mills tips bargain for West Ham amid serious interest

Regardless of these conflicting claims, it’s safe to say that West Ham do hold a serious interest – with reliable club insider ExWHUemployee sharing that he is their ‘number one’ target (Patreon).

As these heavy links to Dia emerge and continue, regular BBC pundit Mills has tipped him to be a ‘bargain’ signing for the Irons as this potentially ‘brilliant news’ comes to light.

When asked by Football Insider whether they should pursue the Frenchman and if the touted £15m figure could be good value, he said:

“I think we all know that it’s very hard to find those rough diamonds outside of the superstars.

“Everyone is looking for that bargain, that player that is slightly unknown that you can turn into an absolute superstar.

“If West Ham can work that out, then it would be brilliant news.”

Transfer Tavern take

Scoring an impressive 12 goals in 17 Ligue 1 starts this season (WhoScored), it’s safe to say Dia has turned many heads with his outstanding contributions.

West Ham need a prolific presence up front to ease the burden off Michail Antonio’s shoulders, with the Englishman still being re-introduced cautiously, despite scoring the winning goal against Burnley on Saturday.

The sale of Sebastien Haller requires GSB to take immediate action, and Mills could be correct that Dia may well become a bargain if the club can agree a fee for him soon.
