Tottenham could soon make a move to sign West Ham target Elye Wahi from Montpellier, if Harry Kane joins Bayern Munich.

According to a report from Midi Libre, Tottenham are ready to make an offer for Elye Wahi whilst West Ham continue to do nothing.

Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to add more pace to his front-line – something that Wahi possesses in droves.

It seems like the Scot could have his work cut-out with Spurs lurking around though…

Spurs allegedly view the Montpellier attacker as a replacement for Harry Kane. And that’s obviously bad news for the Hammers.

He is a centre-forward by trade but can play out on the wing as well if need be.

The 21-year-old possesses absolutely blistering pace, and is a clinical finisher when presented with a goalscoring opportunity.

Described by Transfermarkt as ‘incredible’, Wahi has absolutely everything needed to go on and become a huge star in the game.

Last season, he bagged 19 goals and six assists in 33 Ligue 1 games for Montpellier (Transfermarkt).

The thought of the young striker operating in between Carlos Borges and Jarrod Bowen next season is a really exciting one.

However, it appears as though Tottenham could be the first side to make an offer for Elye Wahi and West Ham cannot allow that to happen.

If the Hammers owners and Moyes are serious, they need to make an official offer for the Montpellier forward before Harry Kane is potentially moved on to Bayern Munich.

RMC Sport claim that the Frenchman is available for around €32 million (£27 million) this summer. That sounds like incredible value to me, considering his outstanding potential.

He’d be a signing that would undoubtedly take us to another level in my opinion.
