West Ham have so far made a trio of signings during this transfer window, but what does the rest of the summer have in store for them? Today’s Hammers transfer roundup is comprised of a bid for an Italian star, the pursuit of a World Cup finalist and an update on a French forward.
According to TuttoMercatoWeb, West Ham have lodged a bid for Torino’s Andrea Belotti. The Hammers have offered €50m (£45m) plus Pedro Obiang for the 25-year-old Italy international. However, Il Toro have rejected the approach.
West Ham are interested in signing Juventus’ Gonzalo Higuain according to Gianluca Di Marzio. The Irons would like to take the former Napoli attacker on loan initially with a potential obligation to buy. The Old Lady, however, are looking for €40m (£35.9m) for the 31-year-old Argentine who has scored 325 goals for club and country during an illustrious career.
Reliable West Ham insider ExWHUemployee has said on The West Ham Way podcast (10/07) that the London Stadium club have their eyes on Sevilla’s Wissam Ben Yedder. The 28-year-old scored 30 goals in 54 appearances last season.
