West Ham ‘progressing’ on four transfer targets at London Stadium

West Ham United boss David Moyes looking very pleased

West Ham United ‘are progressing various deals’ at this moment in time after being linked to various players, according to journalist Dean Jones.

The Hammers have already brought in Alphonse Areola, Flynn Downes and Nayef Aguerd and could be set to add several more new signings over the coming weeks.

What is the latest news involving West Ham?

Sky Sports have reported that West Ham have made a £30 million bid for Chelsea striker Armando Broja, with £25m of that fee to be paid up front.

The 20-year-old enjoyed a successful loan spell at Southampton last season, scoring nine goals in 38 appearances and is now on the radar of multiple Premier League sides.

Meanwhile, the same source claims that the capital club have also offered LOSC Lille around £32.3m for defensive midfielder Amadou Onana after seeing their opening two bids rejected.

Onana only arrived at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy 12 months ago from Hamburger SV but clearly made a big impression with the Ligue 1 outfit.

And talkSPORT have now disclosed that Sassuolo forward Gianluca Scamacca is also on West Ham’s wish list after finding the back of the net on 16 occasions in 36 Serie A outings throughout 2020/21.

What has Jones said about West Ham?

90min have also stated that the east London outfit are continuing to monitor long-term target Jesse Lingard, and Jones has informed GiveMeSport that it is ‘a big few days ahead’ for the club.

He told GMS: It’s true they are progressing various deals at the moment and just waiting for one to show signs of a breakthrough.

“Onana is looking good, there’s promise over Scamacca, Broja is still up in the air, and they are waiting for Lingard to make his announcement. It’s a big few days ahead”

Who would be the biggest signing?

Arguably, Scamacca would be the biggest and most high-profile arrival of the aforementioned players due to his potential and the level of interest in his services.

The Guardian claim that Sassuolo could demand up to €50m (£42.5m) for the talented 24-year-old, who is also on the radar of Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

What nickname is given to West Ham United?

Scamacca established himself as one of the most exciting and promising young strikers in Serie A last season, finishing the campaign as the league’s sixth-top scorer for a side that finished in the bottom half.

Bringing him to the London Stadium would be a significant coup for West Ham and would dramatically improve David Moyes’ options in the final third of the pitch.
