West Ham could sign David Moyes target Charles De Ketelaere on the cheap in January according to a report from Calciomercato.
The Club Brugge attacker is on the Hammers’ radar according to a report from Calciomercato.
Moyes will be desperate to bolster his centre-forward ranks in the January transfer window.
The Scot needs to bring in more quality competition and cover for Michail Antonio as a matter of urgency.
And it seems as though the Hammers may well have a great chance to do just that.
West Ham could sign Charles De Ketelaere on the cheap in January
Calciomercato reckon that the young Belgian could be available for a knock-down fee next month.
Voetbal Krant noted in November that the 20-year-old forward would cost around £35 million. Calciomercato now suggest that Club Brugge will now demand just £21 million for him, however, after their elimination from the Champions League.
That would be truly sensational value for the Hammers.
The Belgian ace is comfortable playing anywhere along the front-line. He has exceptional technique and is very quick along the ground.
The youngster was described as an attacker with ‘fantastic trickery’ by Eurosport.
The two-capped Belgium international has been in decent form for Club Brugge so far this season, bagging seven goals and six assists in 25 games (Transfermarkt).
The only red flag for West Ham is that De Ketelaere is not an out-and-out striker. He is more of an attacking midfielder/winger who can also operate through the middle.
We all know how much Moyes likes to convert attacking midfielders or wingers into strikers though! You need look no further than Marko Arnautovic and Michail Antonio.
The 20-year-old Belgian really is a truly brilliant young talent.
And if Moyes manages to sign him for just £21 million it would be a real coup for West Ham.
