Hammers boss David Moyes is expected to be a busy man in the transfer market this summer.

The Scot’s need for another centre-forward has been well-documented since Sebastien Haller left for Ajax in January.

One of the names banded about as a potential signing for the Hammers this summer is Arsenal ace Eddie Nketiah.

The Gunners striker is unlikely to sign a new deal at the Emirates according to The Athletic, with the youngster keen to play regular first-team football next season.

Fabrizio Romano has suggested that the Hammers are one of four teams keeping a very close eye on the 22-year-old:

The Sun recently claimed that the 22-year-old could be available for around £20 million this summer.

That asking price will surely drop if he doesn’t sign a new contract with the Gunners as the months continue to drag on.

If West Ham could pick Nketiah up for around £10 million it may well be a very good deal for us.

Considering the fact that the Gunners starlet is still yet to prove himself at the highest level, however, any more than that and the Hammers should avoid him.
