West Ham manager David Moyes hasn’t given up on signing Benfica striker Darwin Nunez in the summer transfer window.

That’s according to a report from The Express who claim that Moyes is not giving up on the Uruguay international without a fight.

That’s in spite of Portuguese media outlet Record reporting that Arsenal have held talks to try and convince Nunez to move to The Emirates before the start of next season.

The Gunners clearly have far greater spending power than the Hammers and as things stand they are in a better position to secure Champions League football next season. That could all change if we win the Europa League off course.

Another problem that West Ham could face though is the reported interest in Nunez’s signature from Paris Saint-Germain (The Athletic).

Signing the Benfica ace should be the utmost priority for David Moyes this summer. The 22-year-old really is a top-class centre-forward.

And it seems as though Moyes will not give up on the South America just yet, in spite of strong competition from some huge clubs.

West Ham still eyeing Darwin Nunez transfer

Nunez has now scored an incredible 25 goals in 26 league games for Benfica this season and has 33 in 39 appearances in total (Transfermarkt).

The 22-year-old’s playing style is quintessentially South American. He is a tenacious presser, plays with proper physicality and has real technical ability. The 22-year-old seems to be ideally suited for the Premier League what with its intense and robust nature.

Darwin Nunez is absolutely perfect for West Ham so it’s little wonder why Moyes is so desperate to secure his signature in the summer transfer window.

Nunez could be up for grabs for around £50 million at the end of the season according to a report from A Bola. That seems like very good value to us. Whether West Ham will be able to win the race to sign the Benfica star, however, remains to be seen.
