West Ham United: GSB eyeing striker Daryl Dike - West Ham Transfer Rumours

According to a report by ‘transfer insider‘ Graeme Bailey, writing for TEAMtalk, West Ham United and GSB have been watching Championship forward Daryl Dike closely – who has impressed on loan at Barnsley from MLS side Orlando City.

The 20-year-old, having already earned an international cap for the USA national team, has turned plenty of heads since his arrival in England – scoring five goals so far after joining on loan in early February.

Barnsley also have an option-to-buy clause inserted into the temporary deal at £17 million with a 20% sell-on – but only promotion to the Premier League is likely to tempt the Yorkshire side into activating it.

It is understood by Bailey, writing for TEAMtalk, that Dike has attracted interest from half of the English top flight, with GSB and West Ham among the sides taking note of his exploits at Oakwell.

Transfer Tavern take

Dike has received plenty of plaudits through the media, plenty of which come from one of his former coaches in the United States, George Gelnovatch.

Indeed, Gelnovatch oversaw his development at College side Virginia Cavaliers and quickly noticed his sky high potential – branding him ‘relentless competitor’ and ‘ruthless guy’ (ScoreCiti.com).

Standing at an imposing 6 foot 2, Dike’s swift adaptation to life in England has prompted interest from West Ham – but only time will tell whether they take it a step further.
