West Ham United are said to be ‘on the spot’ to complete a dream transfer window by signing midfield powerhouse Seko Fofana.

Despite a barnstorming transfer window which saw West Ham break their transfer record over the weekend, it seems there may be more to come for David Moyes before Thursday’s deadline.

Lucas Paqueta’s arrival at the London Stadium now means West Ham have a France goalkeeper, starting German international centre-back, England’s starting midfielder, Brazil’s starting playmaker and Italy’s starting striker through the spine of their team.

And Moyes is reportedly looking to continue his spending spree by adding a midfield monster who shone against them in pre-season – Seko Fofana.

West Ham have been linked with strikers, midfielders, central defenders and right-backs before the window shuts.

Moyes has admitted he may well do more business in the next 48 hours or so with the possibility that some current West Ham players – such as Harrison Ashby and Craig Dawson – may leave.

West Ham fans feel one missing piece is a powerful, all-action central midfielder to complement Declan Rice and new boy Paqueta.

Fofana has been linked with West Ham in recent weeks having shone against Moyes’ boys in a pre-season draw with Lens.

The Ivory Coast teammate of West Ham summer signing Maxwel Cornet has been the standout star at the start of the Ligue 1 season so far, driving Lens to the top of the table.

Fofana spoke out about his future at the weekend amid the strong links to West Ham.

The 27-year-old, speaking to Canal+ – as transcribed by GFFN – admitted that there are offers in for him and that ‘everything is possible’.

And it seems the Hammers are serious about signing him.

Because West Ham are ‘on the spot’ to complete a dream transfer window by signing midfield powerhouse Fofana.

That’s according to a report from Ouest-France.

The report says West Ham are waiting to pounce as Fofana had – at the time of publication – ‘five days to think’ about his next move.

PSG and Marseille are also credited with an interest in the alleged Hammers target, who scored a stunning goal in a 2-1 win over Rennes at the weekend.

A midfield of Fofana, Rice and Paqueta is a mouthwatering prospect for West Ham fans.

And if the Hammers pull that off then this has to go down as a 10/10 window for the Hammers.


Fans have noticed something Rice does to the Holte End every time.

Chelsea want to snub Moyes and give Lampard two West Ham targets.

Moyes had scout Brown watch target one last time before big decision.
