West Ham ready to sell out £50.8m on Serie A forward as Moyes aims for more firepower

West Ham are reportedly ready to sell out £13.8million to sign Salernitana forward Boulaye Dia during the January window as David Moyes looks to bolster his forward line.


It’s no secret that Moyes has been searching for a new No. 9 for some time, particularly in light of Danny Ings’ failure to seize his opportunity and Michail Antonio’s chronic injury problems at the London Stadium.

Il Mattino also claims that the 27-year-old Dia is open to joining the Hammers this month, despite the fact that Eintracht Frankfurt and Napoli are also interested in signing him.

According to reports, Danilo Iervolino, the CEO of Sampieri, has already asked Napoli for three players during the summer transfer window. In exchange, the chairman of the Italian powerhouse has asked for Senegal striker Dia.

Frankfurt and West Ham, on the other hand, are willing to pay a player’s estimated £13.8 million (€16 million) in cash.

In the absence of Antonio, Jarrod Bowen performs best when working from the right flank rather than the middle, and Moyes is eager to relieve some of the increasing pressure on him.

Despite scoring 16 goals the previous season, Dia has only managed to score four goals in 10 Serie A games thus far this season.

Although Moyes is enthusiastic about adding another forward player, it’s unknown at this point whether the player is open to a move during the season.

Another target for West Ham has been the attacker Akor Adams of Montpellier, but it has subsequently been revealed that a deal for him may be more difficult to complete.

Adams is a highly promising former Nigeria Under-20 player, therefore a move for him makes sense. He did, in fact, leave his impact in Lillestrom, a Norwegian team, scoring 28 goals in 50 games.

And so far this campaign, in 17 appearances for the French club, he has seven.

Nonetheless, it appears that La Paillade is eager to hold onto its finest players in case of a relegation struggle, given that they are now sitting just above the drop zone.

Football Insider reports that manager Michel Der Zakarian is unwilling to let the African go halfway through the season.

In the FA Cup third round, the Hammers will visit Bristol City on Sunday afternoon when they return to play.
