According to a report from Area Napoli, alleged West Ham target Adam Ounas will certainly leave Napoli this summer.
Calcio Mercato reported two days ago that Hammers boss David Moyes has been offered the chance to sign the 23-year-old winger.
West Ham have limited funds to spend this summer.
And any cash we raise from Grady Diangana’s imminent sale will most likely be put towards strengthening our defence.
But if there is any money left over, Adam Ounas would be a great option for the Hammers.
The 23-year-old Algerian winger spent last season on loan in Ligue 1 with Nice.
And Ounas impressed in France, racking up four goals and four assists in 19 appearances in all competitions (Transfermarkt).
In 16 league outings for Nice, he averaged 1.3 shots, 1.6 key passes and 2.8 dribbles per game. The nine-capped Algeria international also made 26.4 passes on average with an impressive completion rate of 82% (Who Scored).
Ounas is clearly a very good player. And Area Napoli claim that he could be picked up for just £10.5 million this summer.
In the current market, that would be great value for West Ham.
We all know that we need to sign defenders more than anything else, however.
So signing Ounas may not be Moyes’s priority at the moment.
