A shock report has claimed that Yuri Alberto will become one of the highest paid players at West Ham United, if he does indeed move to the London Stadium this summer.

According to TeamTalk, West Ham are prepared to offer Yuri Alberto a bumper contract in order to tempt him into joining us in the summer transfer window.

The East London outfit will apparently have to pay £21 million for the 22-year-old, and include a 40% sell-on clause into the deal if we want to sign him this summer.

Hammers boss David Moyes is clearly desperate to bring a new centre-forward into the club, having sold Gianluca Scamacca earlier on in the window.

And it seems as though Alberto will be the man for the job…but the deal will be an expensive one all in…

Shock claim made about West Ham United’s move to sign Yuri Alberto

The Brazilian hitman will instantly become one of the Hammers’ highest earning players if he makes the move to the London Stadium this summer.

That in addition to the £21 million fee needed to sign him and a 40% sell-on clause makes this deal for Alberto a very expensive one indeed.

Yuri Alberto is a very hard worker as well and is always willing to make tireless runs into the channels. It’s little wonder why Moyes might be interested in bringing him to the London Stadium!

However, he doesn’t possess a very impressive goalscoring record and has averaged a goal every 3.3 games in his career to date.

I do feel like Moyes could do a lot better in his search for a new striker, and maybe should be setting his sights a little higher.

However, if Yuri Alberto is the man who Moyes wants at West Ham this summer, then who am I to second guess him?
