L’Equipe have just made a shock claim about West Ham United’s bid for talented Lorient striker Terem Moffi, writes the HammerNews.
It was claimed by Sky Sports last night that the Hammers have submitted a bid for the 23-year-old worth £20 million up front and including £5 million in add-ons. David Moyes desperately needs to bring a top-class forward to the London Stadium before the January transfer window closes.
Michail Antonio has regressed badly and Gianluca Scamacca is crying out for some proper competition.
Moffi would be ideal, but it seems as though there’s some bad news for the Hammers fans. L’Equipe claim that the supposed bid for Moffi submitted by the Hammers isn’t real!
Well, I certainly wouldn’t put it past David Sullivan to have thrown in a cheeky ‘phantom bid’ and leaked it to his contacts in the media.
Really though, if he’s done that, it’s little wonder why we’re struggling. David Moyes clearly wants to sign the Nigerian – he possesses all of the attributes that the Scot usually looks for.
Described by Total Football Analysis as a ‘nuisance’ Moffi is exactly what we need at the London Stadium, and he would be the perfect foil for Gianluca Scamacca.
