West Ham United now know the asking price for Brazilian attacker Tete and it’s an absolute bargain.
Most West Ham fans will be familiar with Tete after he played against the Hammers with Lyon in the Europa League last season.
The fact the exciting playmaker was allowed to face West Ham was somewhat controversial.
Lyon used a FIFA loophole transfer window to sign Tete on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk in war-torn Ukraine just before West Ham faced Lyon in the Europa League quarter-finals.
Moyes questioned whether that was fair at the time and admitted he really liked Tete as a player (Football.London).
He made an instant impact for Lyon and kept the tie very much alive for the French side when he came on and beat Ben Johnson to set up an equaliser in the 1-1 first leg draw at the London Stadium.
West Ham cruised to a 3-0 win in France as they took home some amazing memories from Lyon.
And that is not all Moyes wants to take from Lyon according to a recent report from Le 10 Sport who claim that West Ham want 22-year-old Tete at the London Stadium after his impressive showings during the last two months of the season.
Moyes needs to perform a big rebuild at West Ham this summer around talented young players with six or seven quality signings needed in a host of areas.
Le 10 Sport claim that the Brazilian ace is firmly on the Hammers’s radar.
Well West Ham now know the asking price for Brazilian attacker Tete and it’s an absolute bargain.
That would be an absolute steal for a player of Tete’s ability and age.
And better still for West Ham, L’Équipe and Get French Football News claim that price will likely see Lyon look elsewhere after they committed much of their available finances to securing the return of Alexandre Lacazette.
Tete’s pedigree is clear and he is said to be knocking on the door of the Brazil squad.
He scored two goals and laid on six assists in 10 games for Lyon during his brief spell. That was to add to the nine goals in 17 league games and a host of assists for Donetsk before the Ukrainian league was suspended due to the Russian invasion.
