West Ham have been handed a huge boost with Vincent Kompany suggesting that Burnley will have to prepare for life without Maxwel Cornet.
Moyes needs to bolster his left-back ranks and the wide attacking department at West Ham this summer.
So it’s little wonder why the Scot might be interested in signing Cornet considering the fact that he can play in both the left-back and the left and right wing positions. He can even be deployed as a central striker if needs must!
We’d love Cornet at West Ham. He’s allegedly available for just £18 million (Fabrizio Romano) and it seems as though we could have every chance to sign him in the summer transfer window…
Maxwel Cornet could be up for grabs this summer
Highly respected Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Burnley will sell Cornet if his €21 million (£18 million) release clause is met this summer.
Clarets boss Vincent Kompany has suggested that he may have to prepare for life without the 25-year-old:
After that update from Romano, West Ham cannot afford to hesitate.
Cornet joined Burnley from Lyon in the summer of 2021 for around £13 million (BBC).
He has been a huge hit at Turf Moor, bagging nine goals and two assists in 29 games for the Clarets (Transfermarkt).
We believe that the Burnley speed demon would be a sensational signing for West Ham.
He’s one of the quickest forwards in the Premier League and can operate on either wing or at left-back.
Cornet can even play as a striker if need be!
The Ivorian is aggressive, direct and loves running at opposing defenders.
West Ham have struggled without any real pace in our team over the past year or so. Michail Antonio has definitely lost half a yard.
The Premier League is built on power and pace nowadays.
Burnley star Maxwel Cornet possesses both of those attributes in abundance. And signing him for just £18 million should be an absolute no-brainer for West Ham.
