According to a claim by Eurosport journalist Dean Jones, West Ham ‘contact has been made’ for the signing of Reims striker Boulaye Dia – with a fee just needing to be negotiated as talks begin for the ‘bargain‘ Ligue 1 forward, as listed in The Athletic.
Writing on Twitter, the journalist delivered a promising update on GSB’s hunt for a new striker this January – going on to claim that talks have been initiated by West Ham over a ‘potential deal‘, confirming that ‘contact has been made‘.
GSB in contact for Dia
ExWHUemployee, backing up this claim via West Ham News, recently stated that Dia is the club’s number one transfer target and they are looking to step up their pursuit of the 24-year-old.
Now, Jones has written on social media that contact has been made over signing the star attacker – who has been in red hot form for Reims this campaign.
Transfer Tavern take
This also comes after a source close to Claret & Hugh revealed that GSB’s interest is ‘real’, with this development emerging that talks are underway and contact being made.
However, a fee still needs to be negotiated, and it remains to be seen what price the club end up agreeing on for the attacking ace, if at all.
