Hammers boss David Moyes will be desperate to bolster his centre-forward ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

Having sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax in January, the West Ham boss now has Michail Antonio as his only senior centre-forward option.

The Hammers have been linked with a plethora of forward players since the Ivory Coast international left the club nearly three months ago.

One of those names is Ivan Toney.

Eurosport recently claimed that Moyes is very keen to bring the prolific 25-year-old striker to the London Stadium this summer.

And what a signing Toney would be for West Ham.

 

The pacy striker has racked up 28 goals and nine assists in 36 league games so far (Transfermarkt). He has unquestionably been the Championship’s standout player.

West Ham rocked by Ivan Toney price

The Bees ace won’t come cheap this summer.

If the Hammers want to prise him away from the west London outfit, David Moyes might have to part with as much as £33 million according to a report from Football.London.

That might just be a little bit too steep for West Ham, especially considering the fact that the 25-year-old striker is completely unproven in the Premier League.

Perhaps £25 million odd would be a fairer price. It will depend on what Brentford’s situation is, however.

Toney is under contract with the Bees until the summer of 2025. So the Championship club clearly hold all the cards.
