Foot Mercato claim that the Hammers DOF has spoke directly with the PSG hitman about a potential move to the London Stadium this summer.

I think that Moyes should be going all out to sign Ekitike this summer.

Former Reims manager Oscar Garcia described the young forward as a ‘very special’ player (Ligue 1’s official website), and he’s absolutely spot on.

Hugo Ekitike’s talent and potential is frightening, and he’d be an exceptional addition for West Ham. He possesses blistering pace, has great movement as is a very good finisher indeed.

Get French Football News claim that he could be up for grabs for around €40 million (£34 million) this summer. For that kind of money, signing him will be a no-brainer for the Hammers.

And Hopefully Steidten has worked his magic with the young Frenchman.
