West Ham make decision as forward to jet into UK to complete deal today

West Ham will not be signing AC Milan forward Divock Origi during this transfer window, according to Sean Whetstone.

On September 1, the 6foot2editor tweeted that the Belgian international is anticipated to arrive in the UK on Friday but that the Hammers are not interested in signing him to a contract.

The 28-year-old has been closely associated with the Irons throughout the summer, but on September 1, Sky Sports said that he is in negotiations with moves to Burnley and Nottingham Forest.

No surprise

It doesn’t come as much of a surprise to learn that West Ham are no longer interested in landing a deal to sign Origi with the transfer deadline rapidly approaching.

There had been talk of the Irons looking to bring him in on loan at the start of August, but his wages in Milan were believed to be an issue.

The club have been linked with a host of forwards this summer since they allowed Gianluca Scamacca to make the move to Atalanta.

Although the Belgian would have probably suited David Moyes’ style of play, the Hammers boss has apparently been quite adamant that he didn’t want to bring in a striker just to fill a place in his squad.

The more time goes on and the deadline gets closer, it appears as though there won’t be too much action going on at the club as they seem to be quite content with the business we have already concluded during this window.

In other West Ham news, the club may be forced to sell one player to avoid breaching Premier League rules.

Report: “Quality” player has agreed to join West Ham, he really wants the move

Hugo Ekitike’s potential transfer to West Ham United is progressing as a report brings some encouraging information.

Who will West Ham acquire before the deadline?

The English top flight is in the midst of deadline day as prominent clubs scramble to complete deals before tonight’s deadline of 11 p.m.

Manager David Moyes has so far observed players signing contracts to transfer to the London Stadium, including Edson Alvarez, James Ward-Prowse, Konstantions Mavropanos, and Mohammed Kudus.

Kudus, who starred for Ajax last season and for Ghana at the international level, is perhaps West Ham’s biggest acquisition of the transfer window. Moyes expressed his excitement over the star’s signing.

The manager expressed his happiness at being able to bring Mohammed to West Ham United.

He is a fantastic young talent who, at the age of 23, has already made well over 150 professional games for Ajax and shone at the greatest level in the Champions League. As a result, it was not surprising to see so many prestigious clubs vying for his signature this summer.

The fact that we were able to entice a player of his undeniable caliber to London Stadium demonstrates the influence West Ham currently has. The Board and Tim deserve enormous credit for bringing this one to a successful conclusion.

Even if the Hammers made some excellent acquisitions in the past week, rumors indicate that they are still in the running for Juventus winger Filip Kostic.

Gianluca Scamacca’s early window transfer to Atalanta left Moyes with fewer choices in the striker positions, which is why they were interested in signing Ekitike from PSG on the final day of the transfer window.

The Bundesliga team Eintracht Frankfurt is also interested in signing the Frenchman, but a report from Sports Zone today claims that he is set on a move to the London Stadium.

Indeed, it appears that Ekitike and West Ham are “in agreement,” and despite the striker’s agents urging him to join Eintracht, nothing has changed.

The 21-year-old genuinely wants to work under Moyes, and today, if given the chance, he “will join” West Ham.

How good is Hugo Ekitike?

Before joining Paris in the summer of last year, Ekitike scored 11 goals for his previous club across all competitions, earning the praise of Football Talent Scout Jacek Kulig for his “superb flair.”

Despite recently struggling to force his way onto the PSG lineup, the young attacker has tremendous potential considering his age and opportunity for growth.

Previous managers have complimented Ekitike, including Oscar Garcia, the previous manager of Reims, who once told BeIN Sports’ Ligue 1 show via Chronicle Live that he is a “quality” attacker.

“There is something very special about him,” Garcia stated.

“He’s young, and he has the quality to become a very good player. He’s a young man with a lot of quality but also a lot to improve on, but he works hard in training.”
