Three reasons West Ham must sign Anthony Modeste this summer

According to @ExWHUemployee on Twitter, West Ham United have launched an offer for FC Koln striker Anthony Modeste.

Irons manager Slaven Bilic is keen to bring in two new strikers this summer with continued fitness doubts over both Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho, with the duo once again struggling with injuries and spending the majority of this season on the sidelines.

The Croatian has already been linked with a whole host of names, including Manchester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho, Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi and in demand KAS Eupen star Henry Onyekuru.

However, now it appears as though there is a fourth name in the frame in Modeste, who has enjoyed his second successive impressive season for the German outfit following a move from Hoffenheim in 2015.

If he does complete a move to the London Stadium, it also won’t be the first time he has played in the Premier League following a brief spell with Blackburn Rovers in 2012. Modeste is valued at £14.45m by transfermarkt.com.
