West Ham United allegedly can sign Ludovic Blas from Nantes in the summer transfer window for just €20 million (£17 million).
That’s according to a report from L’Equipe who claim that Nantes are offering the 24-year-old attacking midfielder to interested clubs for the bargain fee.
Hammers manager David Moyes has a lot of work to do in the transfer market this summer.
In order for West Ham to be able to compete on all fronts next season, Moyes needs to sign a top-class striker, a centre-back, a left-back, two central midfielders and an attacking midfielder who can also operate out wide at the very least.
Jesse Lingard is one of the Scot’s main transfer targets according to The Guardian.
In my opinion though, the 29-year-old isn’t sold on a move to the London Stadium. If he was, he would have joined us by now. And with that in mind, Moyes should just move on from his obsession with Jesse Lingard.
And there is someone out there who would be an even better addition for us than Jesse…
West Ham told fee needed for Ludovic Blas
The Hammers have been offered the chance to sign the Nantes ace for just £17 million this summer according to a report from L’Equipe.
We think that represents sensational value for West Ham.
Blas is a left-footed attacking midfielder who is most comfortable when playing in the number 10 position, although he can play out wide as well.
The 24-year-old possesses exceptional technique and has impressive pace and energy. The Frenchman is pretty strong as well – something that bodes well for his chances of adapting to the physicality of the Premier League.
He has been described as ‘incredible’ by former Liverpool ace Pedro Chirivella who suggested that he is better than any other player he has played alongside (Daily Star).
Blas bagged 15 goals and five assists in 41 games for Nantes last term. He’s not just a flash in the pan either. The season before, he racked up 11 goals and five assists in 39 games (Transfermarkt).
The 24-year-old would be a truly sensational addition for West Ham in the summer and we think he would actually be a better signing for us than Jesse Lingard.
Bringing him to the London Stadium for just £17 million in the summer seems like an absolute no-brainer for David Moyes.
And if West Ham do end up signing Ludovic Blas, we strongly believe that he will absolutely light up the Premier League.
