Report claims West Ham move in to sign £24 million striker

West Ham United have allegedly made a move to sign Everton owned striker Moise Kean, who’s currently on loan with Juventus.

That’s according to a report from Corriere dello Sport (print edition June18th, page 7) who claim that Juve are keen to sign the 22-year-old permanently but then want to immediately sell him on.

The Turin giants have an obligation to buy the Italy international at the end of next season for €28 million (£24 million) according to Tuttosport.

And it seems as though the Hammers are sniffing around the Italy international…

West Ham move to sign Everton-owned striker

Corriere dello Sport (print edition June18th, page 7) reckon that the East London outfit want to bring Moise Kean to the club in the summer transfer window.

It will all depend on whether Juventus activate their buyout option on the 22-year-old first, however.

Kean could end up being an excellent addition for the Hammers.

The Italian is an absolute powerhouse of a striker. Sure, he struggled at Everton but his quality is undeniable.

Kean seems to be the kind of player who just needs an arm round him. And there is no better manager than David Moyes when it comes to getting a tune out of a misfiring striker.

If West Ham have the chance to sign the forward for a reasonable fee, let’s say around £20-25 million, then we think bringing him to the London Stadium would be worth the punt. He is obviously a precociously talented young player. He just needs everything to click.

Some may look at this and think it’s just not worth the risk signing him.

In spite of that, we think that West Ham making a move to sign the 22-year-old striker makes total sense.

However, whether the Hammers are able to pick him up for a reasonable fee remains to be seen.
