West Ham are eyeing a swoop for Sevilla hitman Luuk de Jong according to a report from 90min.
The 30-year-old joined Sevilla from PSV Eindhoven back in 2019 for around £12.8 million (Straits Times).
Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to add a top class centre-forward to his ranks before the transfer window slams shut.
The West Ham manager quite simply must bring in more competition and cover for Michail Antonio with so many games lying ahead of us this season.
West Ham eyeing Luuk de Jong swoop
Before joining Sevilla, the Holland international racked up an incredible 112 goals in 204 games for PSV (Transfermarkt).
Standing at 6ft 2in tall, De Jong is a great target man and has very impressive technique. He seems like an ideal option to serve as Antonio’s backup.
Word of warning though.
The 30-year-old failed to score a single goal during an ill-fated loan spell with Newcastle United back in 2014.
In fairness to De Jong though, he only played 12 games. He is a more mature, well-rounded player now.
And if he’s available for a decent fee, the Dutchman would not be a bad stop-gap signing at all for West Ham this summer.
