West Ham boss David Moyes will undoubtedly be keen to bolster his attacking ranks this summer in order to provide more support for Sebastien Haller.

Marca claims that Aboubakar could be available for just £6 million.

And that might just represent the Hammers with a real opportunity to secure themselves a summer bargain.

 

Stats

The 63-capped Cameroon international has struggled over the past two seasons, scoring just six goals in 19 appearances in all competitions for Porto (Transfermarkt).

He was in prolific form in the seven years before those two seasons, however. The hitman banged in 103 goals in 262 games for Valenciennes, Lorient and Porto (Transfermarkt).

Aboubakar possesses blistering pace, and loves to play off the shoulder of the last defender, according to football statistics website Soccer Souls.

And that is exactly the type of striker West Ham need. The Cameroonian could be the perfect foil for Haller. And the duo could forge a very potent partnership

Sure, he might find it difficult to adjust to the frenetic pace of the Premier League. But for just £6 million, signing the 28-year-old would be well worth the risk for the Hammers.
