RMC Sport reckon that the Hammers could try to beat the Blues to the signing of the young French forward this summer.

Described by Transfermarkt as ‘incredible’, Wahi has absolutely everything needed to go on and become a huge star in the game.

On his day, he really is a frightening forward to defend against, and he would offer the Hammers a completely different threat through the middle.

If West Ham manage to beat Chelsea to the signing of Elye Wahi this summer it would be a major statement from the club.
