After deciding not to invest on a new No.9 in the winter market, despite looking seriously at several options, West Ham United will look to strengthen the same position in the summer transfer window.
According to Calciomercato, the Hammers have set their sights on Cagliari’s Giovanni Simeone.
The report’s title states ‘there is an offer’ for the 25-year-old, which has come from the Premier League side.
Within the report, it’s explained David Moyes’ side want to sign the five-time Argentina international, who managed six goals and two assists in Serie A last season.
West Ham have offered to take the son of Diego Simeone on a temporary deal, by paying €1m in loan fee, with a ‘right of redemption’.
The figure to make the deal permanent isn’t mentioned in the report, and that becomes immaterial because the English club’s proposal ‘does not convince’ Cagliari.
If Moyes wants to have the South American at his disposal next season, West Ham will need to make an offer that can convince the Italian club to sanction his transfer this summer.
