Hammers boss David Moyes will be desperate to sign a top class striker this summer.

West Ham currently have Michail Antonio as the only recognised senior striker at the club.

According to a report from the Mirror (Friday January 8th, Page 61), Slavia Prague striker Abdallah Sima is the Hammers’ number one centre-forward target.

West Ham learn Abdallah Sima price-tag

The 19-year-old forward is certainly rough around the edges but boy does he have a lot of potential.

Claret and Hugh claims that West Ham have been told they will have to pay €40 million (£34.7 million) if they want to sign Abdallah Sima this summer.

The 19-year-old has been in fine form for Slavia Prague this season.

He has scored 19 goals in 28 games this term (Transfermarkt). The Senegalese teenager is still very raw and has to work on his technique. His talent and potential is undeniable, however.

Sima would be an exceptional and very exciting addition for the Hammers.

£34.7 million does seem to be a lot of money for someone who is totally unproven in the Premier League, however.

Perhaps £20-25 million would be a fairer price for West Ham to pay.
