According to a report from Marca, Real Madrid are prepared to sell Luka Jovic and Mariano Diaz this summer as their European Super League plans kick into action in what could be a potential double boost for West Ham United.
Los Blancos are clearly trying to get their squad in shape ahead of the proposed new European Super League.
David Moyes should be looking to sign at least two centre-forwards this summer.
We can’t rely on Michail Antonio to feature regularly next season with his fragile hamstrings.
Jovic, 23, and Diaz, 27, would be two very decent options for West Ham.
West Ham handed double boost as Real Madrid begin European Super League plans?
Both players have struggled for regular game-time over the past 12 months or so. That doesn’t mean that they don’t still have a lot to offer at the very highest level, however.
Jovic is technically brilliant. He has impressive control in tight areas and is a really good finisher when presented with a goalscoring opportunity.
Mariano, meanwhile, is accomplished at playing the lone striker role. The 27-year-old is a willing runner and a tireless worker. He would provide great competition and cover for Michail Antonio.
A combined fee of just £48 million for the two strikers would be excellent business for West Ham.
Considering the fact that we sold Sebastien Haller for around £20 million, that would be a net spend of under £30 million for two very good centre-forwards.
And the key is that both Madrid players would compliment each others’ styles.
West Ham boss David Moyes should not hesitate to sign Jovic and Diaz with Madrid allegedly keen to sell the duo. In fact, it really should be a no-brainer for the Hammers.
