West Ham United are reportedly keen to sign Hugo Ekitike from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

According to French publication RMC Sport, PSG hitman Hugo Ekitike is firmly on the radar of West Ham in the summer transfer window.

West Ham were actually trying really hard to sign Ekitike in the summer of 2021, before he joined PSG for around £30 million (RMC Sport).

And now Moyes may have a second bite at the cherry…

Shock Hugo Ekitike claim emerges as West Ham line up move to sign Paris Saint-Germain star

RMC Sport reckon that the Hammers are one of a few clubs interested in prising the 21-year-old striker away from the French capital this summer.

I think that Ekitike would be a sensational signing for West Ham, and he is exactly the kind of forward Moyes should be looking to bring into the club.

The Scot has to bring in an elite goalscorer who possesses blistering pace. Ideally, the Hammers’ next striker signing will be under the age of 24 as well.

Ekitike possesses blistering pace and has quite incredible movement. He is a defender’s nightmare. The Reims ace is a very good finisher as well.

He just didn’t play enough for PSG last season, and the one before that either. The young Frenchman is now at the stage of his career where he needs to be playing consistently if he is to fulfil his potential.

If West Ham manage to sign Hugo Ekitike this summer, I think he’ll be great for the club, what with his speed, movement, finishing ability and outstanding potential.
