In recent comments made on Twitter, ExWHUemployee claimed that West Ham United are interested in a summer move for 19-year-old centre-forward, Abdallah Sima.
Following a question from a West Ham fan asking whether David Moyes’ side could be interested in a move for Sima at the end of the season, ExWHUemployee confirmed that the there is ‘definitely interest‘ in a swoop for the £7.2 million-rated Slavia Prague striker.
The Hammers insider also mentioned that Sima – who has bagged an awe-inspiring 17 goals and four assists across 24 appearances in all competitions for Slavia Prague so far this season, a remarkable return for a teenager – could be ‘on the list‘ of West Ham’s summer targets.
However, after questioning ‘who knows what the next six months will bring’, it would appear that Ex believes any move for the 19-year-old may be very much dependant on a number of external factors that could occur over the remainder of the season, meaning that a move is not set in stone for the striker.
Would Sima be a good signing?
Transfer Tavern Take
Having sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax towards the beginning of the January transfer window, and, subsequently, not bringing in a replacement for the Frenchman, it would indeed appear that a centre-forward will be a priority for the Hammers this summer, as, at present, Michail Antonio is David Moyes’ only out and out striker.
And, considering how well both Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal have performed since joining West Ham from Slavia Prague, it would seem as if there is a well-trodden path that could help guide Sima to east London.
