Back in 2016, the Hammers reportedly wanted the Borussia Monchengladbach hitman (Le10Sport).

West Ham were again linked with Plea in the summer 2018 when Manuel Pellegrini took over (The Sun).

The Hammers bid £27m (Sky Sports) but the striker opted for a move to Borussia Monchengladbach instead.

Plea now attracting interest from Premier League giants

It seems as though the 27-year-old could be set for a big move to the Premier League this summer. But it probably won’t be to West Ham. And that will be a big blow for David Moyes.

Bild claims that Manchester United, Tottenham and Arsenal all want to sign Plea. And it is suggested that the striker could cost as much as €40 million (£35 million).


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Jose Mourinho and Mikel Arteta will all be keen to sign a new striker this summer.

And Plea could be just the man for the job.


The 27-year-old has racked up 24 goals and 12 assists in 64 games for Gladbach (Transfermarkt).

This season, has chalked up nine goals and seven assists in 23 league games. Plea has averaged 2.9 shots and made 1.4 key passes per game during those outings (Who Scored).

The Frenchman is well renowned for having bundles of pace.

And he might just be a useful addition for Manchester United, Tottenham or Arsenal. Unfortunately for David Moyes, however, it seems as though West Ham could miss out on Plea once again.
