West Ham ‘on track’ to sign 26-year-old French hit-man for free

Posted by

Although they’re not out of the woods in terms of relegation from the Premier League at this point, West Ham could almost certainly see themselves safe with another win from their final four games.

Those teams below them in the English top-flight would need to win three of their four games to overtake David Moyes’ Hammers side if the east Londoners could bag another three points.

A mini-revival where they’d drawn with Arsenal and beaten Fulham and Bournemouth is already a distant memory after three consecutive defeats against Liverpool, Crystal Palace and Manchester City.

Man United, Brentford, Leeds United and Leicester City are their final league assignments for the 2022/23 campaign so there is still work to do.

Regardless of what division they’ll start next season in, the club will be scouting players that will either get them straight back up or push them on in the Premier League in 2023/24.

One player that they are apparently ‘on track’ to sign is Lyon’s Moussa Dembele.

According to French journalist, Ignazio Genuardi, via his Twitter account, the Hammers, Aston Villa and Leeds United are three Premier League clubs that have shown an interest.

It’s fair to say that the 26-year-old hasn’t had the best of campaigns in Ligue Un mind.

According to WhoScored, the striker has managed just three goals all season, in 25 appearances, albeit 17 of those were as a substitute.

In total, he’s only been used for a total of 853 minutes in 2022/23 so a move away is probably best for all parties.
