Hammers boss David Moyes has been searching far and wide for a new striker since January.

There must have been at least 30 or 40 centre-forwards linked with a move to the London Stadium over the past few months.

Gent hitman Roman Yaremchuk is one of the latest names to have been linked with West Ham.

The 25-year-old striker has been on fire at EURO 2020 for Ukraine with two goals and one assist in two games so far.

West Ham ready to pay big fee for Yaremchuk

Calciomercato.it claims that Hammers boss David Moyes is ready to splash the cash on the Ukraine international.

West Ham are allegedly ready to pay at least €25 million (£21 million) and as much as €30 million (£25.5 million) for the 25-year-old.

Yaremchuk enjoyed a stellar campaign with Gent last season, racking up 23 goals and eight assists in 43 games (Transfermarkt).

The 25-year-old is a strong centre-forward. He possesses impressive movement and is a real team player. In short, he is exactly the kind of striker David Moyes likes.

He is international teammates with current West Ham winger Andriy Yarmolenko. So perhaps the 31-year-old will be in his ear begging him to move to the London Stadium.

We think that Yaremchuk would be a very useful addition for the Hammers. And £21 million would represent decent business for the 25-year-old.
