West Ham told to pay £25m to bring powerful 24-year-old striker back to the Premier League in the summer transfer window

West Ham United allegedly will have to pay £25 million if we want to sign Union Berlin striker Taiwo Awoniyi in the summer transfer window.

That’s according to a report from German newspaper Bild who claims that Hammers boss David Moyes wants to bring the 24-year-old to the London Stadium.

Southampton and Newcastle want to sign Taiwo Awoniyi as well according to Bild. So we will have our work cut-out if we are to sign the striker who left Liverpool for Union Berlin back in the summer of 2021.

Michail Antonio is currently Moyes’s only centre-forward option at the London Stadium. That obviously needs to change in the summer transfer window.

And it seems as though we could sign one of the Scot’s key targets for a fairly reasonable price…

West Ham could sign Union Berlin striker in the summer transfer window

Taiwo Awoniyi is on the Hammers’ radar according to Bild and we will have to pay £25 million if we are to acquire the forward’s signature in the summer.

We think that the 24-year-old ex-Liverpool hitman would be a sensational addition for West Ham.

He is a real powerhouse and would be the perfect long-term replacement for Michail Antonio.

Awoniyi has bagged an impressive 17 goals and four assists in 36 games for Union Berlin so far this season (Transfermarkt).

The Nigerian is a total menace for opposing defenders. The 24-year-old is absolutely rapid and is built the like a proverbial outhouse.

Awoniyi is a willing and tireless runner. His physical attributes help him occupy more than one defender at a time and that in turn creates space for his teammates.

For just £25 million, West Ham signing the 24-year-old in the summer transfer window seems like an absolute no-brainer.

We would be absolutely delighted if David Moyes ends up bringing Awoniyi to the London Stadium in the summer.
