West Ham United is actively seeking to bolster its attacking lineup this month and has set its sights on Feyenoord sensation, Santiago Gimenez, sources reveal.
Gimenez has become a sought-after forward in European football this season, notably bagging 21 goals with an impressive goal-per-game average in the Eredivisie. His stellar performance has attracted interest from various clubs, including Tottenham and Arsenal. Feyenoord, however, has set a substantial asking price of £60 million for the talented striker.
The latest reports indicate that West Ham is now contemplating a move to secure the services of Gimenez. The Daily Mail’s transfer confidential letter highlights Gimenez as one of the key targets for West Ham in the ongoing transfer window.
Despite the enthusiasm among West Ham supporters, the likelihood of Gimenez donning the claret and blue appears uncertain at the moment. According to the report, Feyenoord is standing firm on their valuation, demanding a minimum of £35 million for the transfer to be considered. This potential price tag poses a significant financial commitment for West Ham, potentially pushing the deal beyond their financial reach.
West Ham’s manager, David Moyes, is keen on reinforcing the attacking options, especially in the wake of Jarrod Bowen’s recent departure. The uncertainties surrounding Michail Antonio’s future also add to the urgency for West Ham to secure a prolific striker in this transfer window.
As negotiations unfold, West Ham United remains hopeful but faces stiff competition and financial considerations in their pursuit of Santiago Gimenez. Fans await further developments as the transfer window progresses.
