West Ham have been offered Marseille winger Florian Thauvin this summer, according to Sky Sports.

And what an incredible signing the Frenchman could be for the Hammers.

The 26-year-old has been in scintillating form for Marseille over the past three seasons. He has racked up 59 goals and 37 assists in 134 appearances in all competitions.

And despite the fact that West Ham have plenty of options in the wide attacking department, Thauvin would take them to another level entirely.

The France international is a left winger predominantly, but he can really play anywhere along the front-line.

He could even be used as an auxiliary striker.

Thauvin possesses blistering pace, and he has wonderful technique. The Frenchman has the ability to turn a game on its head. And he is the kind of talent that would undoubtedly thrive at a club like West Ham.

 

One red flag for the Hammers will be the 26-year-old’s struggles during his time with Newcastle United.

Maybe he can’t hack the intensity of the Premier League?

That could be true, but his performances over the last three years signify that he has evolved and matured as a footballer.

And he will be in a far better place now to achieve success in England than he was four years ago.

Thauvin is an incredible talent, and West Ham must not pass up the opportunity to bring him to the London Stadium.

He could be a real star in east London.
