As per Calciomercato, it appears that yet another player is now keen to join West Ham United as news emerges on Lille star Jonathan David.
The Lowdown: Targets eye Irons move?
According to numerous claims, it seems that a fair few transfer targets are quite keen on the idea of joining the Hammers and are open to a move to east London.
Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard has apparently ‘made it clear’ to West Ham that he wants to join, as per a recent update by reliable club insider ExWHUemployee.
Meanwhile, another reliable source in Evening Standard reporter Jack Rosser revealed earlier this month that Burnley defender James Tarkowski would also be interested.
Which attacker should West Ham sign?
Eurosport journalist Dean Jones lifted the lid on Manchester City defender Nathan Ake’s stance as well, claiming that the Netherlands international is ‘keen on the prospect’ of joining the Irons if his club will allow it.
As per a claim from Italy, yet another player is open to a London Stadium move.
The Latest: David’s stance is clear…
According to Calciomercato, in-form Lille striker David ‘likes’ the idea of joining either West Ham or Barcelona as the January transfer window looms.
The Canada international has been in fine form, scoring 14 goals in all competitions already this season, including three in the Champions League (Transfermarkt).
The Verdict: Tremendous coup?
David is one of the hottest forward prospects in Europe right now and has also been dazzling on the international stage, with a very impressive 18 goals in 24 caps.
His national team coach, John Herdman, even described the starlet as ‘fearless’ – with the praise hardly ending there.
Writing for The Guardian, French football expert Adam White raved over the 21-year-old’s exploits in a detailed piece and explained how he is transforming into an ‘elite striker’ in Ligue 1, even likening his style to Luis Suarez and Wissam Ben Yedder.
For this reason, while David would undoubtedly be a phenomenal signing for West Ham, we believe this could be far too difficult to pull off.
