Three reasons West Ham must hijack Everton’s bid to sign Martin Terrier

According to The Guardian sport’s deputy news editor Ed Aarons via his official Twitter account, Everton are one of the clubs interested in signing young Lille forward Martin Terrier before the January transfer window slams shut, with a fee for the 20-year-old likely to be around £13m.

Aarons says that the Toffees, along with Premier League rivals Bournemouth and Ligue 1 outfit Lyon, are all keen on the France U21 international, who is currently catching the eye of many teams with his performances on loan at Strasbourg and for his country.

The Merseyside outfit have already completed a £27m deal to sign Cenk Tosun from Besiktas and are closing in on the £20m addition of Theo Walcott from Arsenal, but it appears as though Sam Allardyce isn’t finished there as he is linked with yet another attacking player.

Meanwhile, West Ham United’s revival under David Moyes continued as they beat Huddersfield Town 4-1 at the John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday, but the impressive result won’t see the Scot get complacent with his side just five points above the relegation zone.

The former Manchester United and Toffees boss will still be looking to strengthen his squad before January 31, and bringing Terrier to the London Stadium could prove to be a shrewd move.
