So it’s little wonder why Hammers boss David Moyes wants to sign him.

West Ham have been keeping an eye on the 29-year-old Montpellier hitman according to ExWHUemployee.

The Algerian hitman is perfectly suited to West Ham. He would provide stringent competition for Michail Antonio at the London Stadium.

Delort was on fire in France last season, racking up 19 goals and 10 assists in 34 games for Montpellier last season (Transfermarkt).

The hard-working striker is capable of leading the line on his own.

West Ham target Delort is rapid

According to Ligue 1’s official website, the 29-year-old was the fastest player in the French top flight last season.

He clocked a top speed of 36.8 km/h during one of his sprints.

That kind of pace in our front-line would be absolutely fascinating to see.

He could be available for around £14 million this summer (The Sun). That would represent very good value for the Hammers.

His lightning speed is clearly one of the main attractions for David Moyes.
