West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini clearly wants a new striker this summer, and Espanyol hitman Borja Iglesias could be just the man for the job.
The Hammers have been linked with numerous front-men this summer.
Talks for Maxi Gomez appear to be ongoing. Whilst Salomon Rondon, Moussa Marega and Aleksandar Mitrovic are all allegedly on West Ham’s radar.
In spite of all those links, however, Pellegrini should consider moving for Iglesias instead.
The Spaniard, 26, was in fine form for Espanyol last season. He racked up 20 goals in 43 appearances, and he would be a great addition for the Hammers.
He is wanted by Everton, according to Spanish media outlet El Desmarque, with £24 million thought to be enough to prise him away from Espanyol.
West Ham should challenge the Merseyside outfit for his signature, however.
The former Real Zaragoza man possesses exceptional technique, and he has a real eye for goal.
He has the ability to link up the play between midfield and attack – something that the Hammers desperately need in the final third, what with so many creative midfielders at the club.
The Spaniard also seems to possess the physical attributes required to be a success in the English game.
£24 million for a player with Iglesias’s quality would represent a real bargain in today’s market.
And West Ham must do all that they can to bring the Spaniard to the London Stadium this summer.
