Weest Ham United have allegedly made enquiries about signing Empoli midfielder Kristjan Asllani in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report from Calciomercato.it who claim that the 20-year-old could be picked up for around €11 million (£9.3 million) this summer.
Signing a top-class central midfielder in the summer window will be absolutely pivotal for Hammers boss David Moyes.
Mark Noble has retired whilst Alex Kral will be sent back to Spartak Moscow after a disappointing loan spell at the London Stadium.
Declan Rice needs more quality slotted in alongside him so that Tomas Soucek can then be given the freedom to get forward more often and do what he did in the 2020/21 campaign.
It seems as though Moyes has his eye on a talented youngster for the role…
West Ham make Kristjan Asllani enquiries
Calciomercato.it reckon that the Albania international is firmly on the Hammers’ radar ahead of the summer transfer window.
In fact, the Hammers have allegedly made enquiries to sign Asllani and have been told that he will cost around £9.3 million.
The 20-year-old has made a huge impression in Serie A this season and was one of Empoli’s standout performers.
Asllani is a tough tackling and energetic defensive midfielder by trade. He is very strong in the challenge and quick along the ground.
On face value, the Empoli ace seems to possess all of the attributes needed to succeed in the Premier League. He is still very young though and is obviously unproven at the very highest level for a sustained period of time.
The £9.3 million bargain fee needed to sign him means that the Hammers’ risk will be limited, however.
And we think that Kristjan Asllani would be a very smart signing indeed for West Ham United this summer.
