West Ham United will reportedly have to pay at least £30 million for Everton owned striker Moise Kean in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report from Calcio Mercato who claim that Juventus are prepared to sell Kean once they make his loan move from Everton permanent.
Hammers boss David Moyes obviously needs to bring a top-class centre-forward to the London Stadium before the start of next season.
Michail Antonio is currently our only option through the middle and that quite simply has to change if we are to achieve any kind of success next season.
Tuttosport claimed earlier this week that Moyes could have the chance to sign Moise Kean in the summer.
Kean is midway through a two-year loan deal with Juventus.
The Turin giants have an obligation to buy the Italy international at the end of next season for €28 million (£24 million) according to Tuttosport.
However, Juventus are allegedly ready to trigger that obligation one year early and sign him permanently this summer before moving him on once again, having decided that he is not a part of their future plans.
West Ham told to pay £30 million for Juventus striker Moise Kean in the summer
Calcio Mercato reckon that the Hammers can sign Kean but we will have to pay at least £30 million to get a deal done for the 22-year-old.
That sounds like an awful lot of money to spend on someone who failed to make much of an impression in the Premier League with Everton.
We still believe that the Italian ace could end up being a very good signing for West Ham though.
Kean possesses real pace and seems to be tailor made for this West Ham team.
He has been described as a sensational talent by talkSPORT.
Kean seems to be the kind of player who just needs an arm round him. And there is no better manager than David Moyes when it comes to getting a tune out of a misfiring striker.
It will all come down to whether or not the West Ham board and Moyes think that paying £30 million for the striker is worth the risk.
Moise Kean is a great talent. But does he have what it takes to succeed in the Premier League? Only time will tell if we ever get an answer to that question.
