West Ham offered the chance to sign Arsenal transfer target

Posted by

West Ham could be in the market for a striker this summer, with Michail Antonio reaching the latter stages of his career.

The Jamaican international has struggled with injuries during the last few years and is West Ham’s only recognised striker. Andriy Yarmolenko was often utilised as an out-of-position forward due to West Ham’s lack of numbers, and they’ve now been offered the chance to sign the son of Diego Simeone to bolster their front line.

According to The Times, West Ham now have the opportunity to sign Cagliari striker Giovanni Simeone. The Argentine forward scored 17 times in the Serie A on loan at Hellas Verona, and could be a useful addition to David Moyes’ side.

Arsenal and Juventus are also reportedly interested, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Game time may be difficult to come by at the two European giants, so West Ham may hold the advantage in securing his signature.

However, Arsenal have just lost Alexandre Lacazette, departing the Emirates upon the expiration of his contract, but it appears The Gunners are going all out for Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus, Fabrizio Romano confirmed to CaughtOffside.

  1. West Ham need to take the next step by signing a more game-ready player. If Simeone cannot get minutes at Cagliari he is not good enough to play for West Ham. There are a number of quality strikers available this summer, with one or two looking like a good fit for Moyes.

    Eddie Nketiah might fit the bill. The Arsenal youngster has never really been given a chance to shine in meaningcful games until the end of this season. He did well.

    Richarlison might work as well. He is not as prolific as most starting XI center forwards, but with the Brazilian is flexible, just as Michael Antonio can be. Antonio in the middle, Richarlison out wide. Antonio gets a break, Richarlison plays up the middle. He would add goals and assists, which are always welcome, but Everton are asking big money and there are better striking values out there.

    Donyell Malen is a player who was an Arsenal youngster, starred at PSV, and is now at Borussia Dortmund. He is not scoring a lot, but he does provide goals and might develop.

    Timo Wrner is a player Chelsea want to dump, he has scored big goals for the Blues, and to be fair to him, he has never really gotten the time to prove he can lead the line. If the salary issues can be resolved, Werner might be the answer to West Ham’s prayers.
