According to a report by the Daily Express, West Ham United now want Ukraine striker Roman Yaremchuk and it is believed he will ‘push hard’ for his next move this summer.
The Lowdown: West Ham and the striker chase…
Manager David Moyes reportedly has three main priorities in this summer window, namely a permanent deal for 2020/2021 loan sensation Jesse Lingard, a star centre-back and the acquisition of a new striker (Claret & Hugh).
Of the strikers linked in recent months, many have been named, including the likes of Tammy Abraham, Youssef En-Nesyri, Ivan Toney and Adam Armstrong (ExWHUemployee).
Many others are now coming out of the woodwork as the transfer window opens, with Arsenal forward Eddie Nketiah most recently linked as well (Fabrizio Romano).
The Latest: West Ham now want Yaremchuk…
As per the Daily Express, West Ham are now eyeing a move for Euro 2020 star Yaremchuk with the 25-year-old now falling into consideration on Moyes’ striker shortlist.
It is believed he will ‘push hard’ for his next move this summer after having a stellar season with current club Gent.
Yaremchuk bagged 17 goals in the Belgian Pro League last season and stands at a towering 6 foot 3 – potentially marking him out as a good fit for the physicality of the Premier League.
The Verdict: Solid option…
The summer window is still young and West Ham will want to assess the best possible forward options before making any concrete swoops.
Yaremchuk emerges as a potentially fruitful name to enter the fray going by his stance on an exit this summer and fairly impressive tally in front of goal over 20/21 – having managed 23 strikes in all competitions (Transfermarkt).
