A journalist’s three-word claim about the next West Ham transfer target in an exciting Mohammed Kudus update will have fans dreaming.

As far as transfer speculation goes, it’s fair to say it’s been an exciting week for West Ham fans.

But Hammers supporters are too long in the tooth to get carried away given the club’s conversion rate on deals.

Nevertheless West Ham are very much active right now according to widespread reports with brilliant Ajax star Mohammed Kudus reportedly edging ever closer to joining the club.

And it has also been claimed that Jesse Lingard has impressed David Moyes enough during his spell of training to earn a short-term deal.

Journalist’s three-word claim about next West Ham transfer target in exciting Mohammed Kudus update will have fans dreaming

Yesterday an angry Kudus hit out at claims his demands are holding up a move to West Ham.

Overnight there has been a hugely positive development according to French reporter Santi Aouna.

And the journalist’s three-word claim about the next West Ham transfer target in an exciting Kudus update will have fans dreaming.

The Foot Mercato journalist has exclusively claimed that West Ham are close to a full agreement with Ajax over a £35m deal for Kudus. He says personal terms are already agreed with the player.

‘West Ham have already agreed terms with the player’

But it was the last three words of his update which will have fans dreaming of one of the most talented frontlines in their modern history.

Because the Hammers are genuinely going after Belgian sensation Jeremy Doku next claims Aouna.

“West Ham a close to a full agreement agreement with Ajax for Kudus. Deal is £35m,” Aouna said.

“West Ham have already agreed personal terms with Ajax player.

“As revealed today, Tim Steidten is in Amsterdam to seal the deal.

“Next target: Doku.”

‘Next target Doku’ as Hammers work on dream frontline

Carlsberg don’t do transfer windows but if they did…

West Ham fans will – understandably – be very sceptical about talk of a move for Doku.

With Manchester City said to be seriously interested in the ridiculously talented 21-year-old Rennes winger – any Hammers hopes of signing him look seriously limited.

But stranger things have happened.

One thing is for sure, it certainly isn’t boring being a West Ham fan right now.

A front three of Kudus and Doku either side of Jarrod Bowen is a mouthwatering prospect.
