Hammers boss David Moyes is still in search of a top-class striker.

The Scot desperately needs to bring more competition and cover for Michail Antonio to the London Stadium.

Sevilla ace De Jong is one name to have been linked with a move to West Ham recently (90min).

And it seems as though the Hammers are very keen to sign him.

Luuk de Jong has offer from West Ham on the table

Sport claims that the Sevilla man could be Hammers bound.

The East London outfit have allegedly offered terms to the Dutchman. Whether we can agree a fee with Sevilla remains to be seen, however.

 

The 30-year-old would be a decent acquisition for Moyes.

Before joining Sevilla, the Holland international racked up an incredible 112 goals in 204 games for PSV (Transfermarkt).

Standing at 6ft 2in tall, De Jong is a great target man and has very impressive technique. He seems like an ideal option to serve as Antonio’s backup.

De Jong did struggle during a short spell with Newcastle but he only played 12 games for the Magpies.

West Ham could certainly do a lot worse than the Dutchman. He would be a very decent stop-gap signing if Moyes fails to land his primary targets.
