Hammers boss David Moyes will be desperate to bolster this centre-forward ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
After Sebastien Haller was sold to Ajax, West Ham were far too reliant on Michail Antonio.
Moyes needs to address that issue in the summer.
It appears as though the East London outfit could go shopping in Turkey this summer.
West Ham to battle West Brom for Cyle Larin?
TUM SPOR reckon that the Hammers and the Baggies are both chasing the 26-year-old hitman.
And he could be signed for just £9 million according to TUM SPOR.
Larin was in fine form this season, racking up 23 goals and six assists in 45 games for Besiktas (Transfermarkt).
We surely have a huge advantage over West Brom in the race for Larin’s signature.
West Ham can offer Premier League and Europa League football whilst the Black Country outfit will be plying their trade in the Championship next season.
Larin would be a smart addition for the Hammers – certainly for just £9 million.
As long as Moyes signs a marquee name in addition to the 33-capped Canada international, bringing him to East London would be a very wise move.
And if West Ham win the race for his signature, we would deal a big blow to West Brom in the process.
