West Ham boss David Moyes wants to bring Saint-Etienne winger Denis Bouanga to the London Stadium, according to a report from Buzzsport.
The Hammers manager will be looking to add more quality and depth to his attacking ranks this summer, with the club’s owners allegedly keen to move on Felipe Anderson, Andriy Yarmolenko, Albian Ajeti, Sebastien Haller and Manuel Lanzini this summer (ExWHUemployee).
And Buzzsport claims that Saint-Etienne winger Denis Bouanga could be an option for West Ham.
The 25-year-old is allegedly available for just £13.5 million this summer.
The Gabon international racked up 12 goals and five assists in 36 games for the Ligue 1 outfit this season (Transfermarkt).
In 26 Ligue 1 outings, Bouanga has averaged three shots, 0.7 key passes and 2.2 dribbles per game. He has also been fouled 1.3 times per match on average (Who Scored).
According to Saint-Etienne’s official website, the 25-year-old is a hard-hitting and fast forward. So it sounds like he is ideally suited to the Premier League.
It has been widely reported that West Ham boss David Moyes will have limited funds to play with this summer.
So the Scot will have to be thrifty in his player recruitment. And signing Bouanga for just £13.5 million would surely constitute a bargain for the Hammers.
