Tim Steidten will love what PSG director and manager have told West Ham striker target Hugo Ekitike after official talks over a deal.
Fast forward a month and frosty relations with manager David Moyes have thawed.
Proof of that has come in the fact two of West Ham’s three signings so far have been Steidten targets in the shape of Edson Alvarez and Konstantinos Mavropanos.
Tim Steidten will love what PSG’s director and manager have told West Ham striker target Hugo Ekitike after official talks over deal
And, as reported earlier today, the German was in Paris overnight for a high level meeting with PSG over striker Hugo Ekitike.
RMC Sport claimed yesterday that Ekitike was back on West Ham’s radar after a failed bid to sign him before he joined the Ligue 1 champions from Lorient.
They were right as Steidten headed across The Channel to discuss potentially bringing the jet-heeled striker to the London Stadium.
West Ham fans are too long in the tooth to get carried away until they see Ekitike in the claret and blue. And that’s understandable given how dismal the club’s transfer conversion rate been this summer transfer window.
It was reported that while in the meeting, Steidten presented Ekitike’s representatives with how West Ham planned to play with him in the side and they were impressed.
So Steidten will love what PSG’s director and manager have told West Ham striker target Ekitike after official talks over a deal.
That’s despite the player being on the bench for PSG’s first two games of the season – draws with Lorient and Toulouse.
Now it looks like it will come down to whether the player wants to come to east London and the Premier League because West Ham’s talks with PSG were reportedly positive.
