According to a report from 90 Min, West Ham and Newcastle are interested in signing Real Madrid hitman Luka Jovic this summer. And some Hammers fans took to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.

David Moyes will surely be keen to bolster his attacking ranks this summer.
Albian Ajeti will more than likely be moved on after his struggles this season.
And one of West Ham’s main priorities must be to get the best out of Sebastien Haller next season.
Re-uniting Jovic and Haller would be an absolute dream for the Hammers.
But in truth, it is surely nothing more than a dream.
The Serbia international joined Madrid from Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer of 2019 for around £55 million (AS).
And despite the 22-year-old’s struggles at the Santiago Bernabeu, he will surely still be out of West Ham’s price range.
The Serbia international has scored just two goals in 24 games for the Spanish giants so far this season (Transfermarkt).
In truth, he hasn’t really been given enough chances to shine, with just eight of those appearances having been starts.
It would be no surprise to see Jovic go on and become a world class striker.
And some West Ham fans seem to have taken the links with the Serb with a pinch of salt, suggesting that he is bound to join Newcastle…
Thought we had no money?

Why would we sign Jovic if we off load Haller? 🤦 You’d want those two together again.

A £62m player? David Sullivan will offer them £6.2m, a box of dildos, a curly wurly and Roberto, and then say “we tried” when he goes to Newcastle.
