West Ham have been offered Borussia Monchengladbach forward Alassane Plea for just £15 million according to ExWHUemployee.
The Hammers insider claims that that offer has been turned down by the East London outfit, however.
David Moyes’s frantic search to bring a top-class forward to the London Stadium continues to rumble on.
After West Ham sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax in January, we have been linked with at least 40 strikers.
Plea is one of the names to have been continually linked with a move to the Hammers over the past three years.
West Ham offered bargain Allasane Plea deal
ExWHUemployee took to his West Ham Way Patreon and claimed that the 28-year-old Gladbach hitman has been offered to the Hammers for just £15m.
We have allegedly turned the chance to sign the Frenchman for that price, however.
Plea is far from prolific. He can play anywhere along the front-line, however, and he is a very hard-working attacker.
The former Nice ace seems to be the ideal back-up for Michail Antonio.
The Frenchman is energetic, dynamic, has plenty of pace and is also strong when playing with his back to goal.
£15 million for the 28-year-old actually would have represented decent value for West Ham.
Whether we try to get a deal done for him for a cheaper price remains to be seen.
Plea would be a very strong addition to Moyes’s ranks. Passing up on the chance to sign him for £15m really does seem like a strange move from West Ham.
