According to Goal, via West Ham Central, the Hammers are interested in Red Bull Salzburg striker Patson Daka – with many supporters erupting as GSB allegedly eye the ‘perfect signing’.
Daka has attracted much attention for his exploits in Austria, drawing comparisons with Premier League legend Thierry Henry, and it’s not hard to see why judging by his phenomenal goal record over the 2020/2021 season.
Indeed, the Zambian star bagged a truly head-turning 34 goals and 12 assists in 42 appearances in all competitions for Salzburg (Transfermarkt) – with West Ham now apparently one of the clubs interested.
Not much is mentioned in regards to a price tag or any formal enquiry, but Goal claim that the Irons are certainly taking note of the 22-year-old.
Given his brilliant campaign, it’s little wonder supporters are excited at this link – with one Hammers fan calling Daka the ‘perfect signing’ if they can get a deal done.

West Ham fans erupt as GSB allegedly eye Daka
“Please…don’t play with my heart again!
I think he’s levels above Toney, Armstrong & Abraham ability-wise & suitability for West Ham!
Unbelievable pace & work rate, good with both feet, strong, good in the air, excellent link-up play & his agent is Kanoute!
Get it done!!!”
“This is a dream for me.”
“I’m on my knees”
“Now this I can really get behind!! Make it happen Moyesy”
“Yes please. Perfect signing but probably too expensive for us.”
“Thought he was going to Leipzig but if he’s available for £25m, he’d be perfect. Fast, young, good on the ball and prolific admittedly not in the best league but he has had experience in Europa.”
“This is THE signing we have to make this summer!!”
