West Ham are still trying to sign Hugo Ekitike from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

PSG hitman Hugo Ekitike is firmly on the West Ham radar in the summer transfer window, according to a report from RMC Sport.

Hammers boss David Moyes clearly needs to sign a new striker this summer after Gianluca Scamacca left to join Atalanta – preferably someone with real pace who will suit his counter-attacking setup.

Ekitike is absolutely perfect for us and he is someone who West Ham have tried to sign before.

And now the Hammers could be ready to strike…

West Ham line up stunning Hugo Ekitike signing

RMC Sport reckon that the Hammers are plotting a sensational move to bring the 21-year-old PSG forward to the London Stadium this summer.

What a truly unbelievable signing this would be for us.

Ekitike possesses blistering pace and has quite incredible movement. He is a defender’s nightmare. The PSG ace is a very good finisher as well.

He just didn’t play enough for PSG last season, nor the one before that. The young Frenchman is now at the stage of his career where he needs to be playing consistently if he is to fulfil his potential.

Get French Football News claim that he could be up for grabs for around €40 million (£34 million) this summer.

With his frightening speed and willingness to run in behind opposing defenders, he is perfectly suited to Moyes’s system.

And if West Ham sign Hugo Ekitike this summer, as well as a really fast left winger, we will be a fearsome outfit, there’s no doubt in my mind about that.
