According to a report from Area Napoli, West Ham and Everton are keen on signing Sassuolo ace Jeremie Boga this month.

The 23-year-old winger, formerly of Chelsea, is enjoying a decent campaign in Serie A, with four goals and two assists to his name in 17 outings thus far.

Area Napoli claims that the Hammers and the Toffees are keen on signing the Ivorian, but the Premier League clubs will face competition from Napoli for his signature.

The Italian publication also claims that West Ham and Everton will have to pay between £21 million and £25.5 million, if they want to sign Boga this month.

 

Do the Hammers need him?

The obvious answer to the question is no. David Moyes has so many other positions that he will surely be looking to strengthen. Another winger really shouldn’t be a priority for the east London outfit.

£21-25.5 million is a lot of money for Boga too. He has hardly been the most prolific since joining Sassuolo, with just seven goals and three assists to his name in 45 appearances for the Serie A outfit.

Boga was never good enough to make the jump up to the next level at Chelsea, and in truth, he even struggled to make much of an impact in the Championship whilst on loan with Birmingham.

This is one that West Ham should avoid.
