Dharmesh Sheth has claimed that the Hammers are currently in dialogue with PSG about bringing the young Frenchman to the London Stadium.

The Sky Sports reporter tweeted:

Hugo Ekitike really would be the dream signing for West Ham this summer.

The PSG forward possesses absolutely blistering pace and has incredible movement. He’s a very good finisher indeed as well.

Ekitike would be perfect for Moyes’s counter-attacking setup at the London Stadium.

And I’ll be a very happy man if he joins West Ham this summer, whether that be on loan or a permanent deal.
