Will this be the transfer window in which West Ham United will finally replace Sébastien Haller?

Over the past year or so, the Hammers have been linked with many, many goalscorers, and tried to sign a few in the process, to no avail.

This left David Moyes short up front, having to rely a lot on Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen for goals during the recently finished campaign.

Well, with more European football secured for next season, there might be some money to spend, and this is where someone like Giovanni Simeone could come in.

The Argentine came fourth in the Serie A top goalscorer ranking this year, finding the back of the net 17 times for Hellas Verona, who will make his loan from Cagliari permanent this summer.

What happens after that, however, isn’t clear, as there is interest in Diego Simeone’s son, as Corriere di Verona point out on Wednesday.

The local newspaper explain that the ‘more concrete hypothesis leads to his departure’ once the loan is made permanent, where ‘Newcastle and West Ham follow him in England’, while Villarreal and Sevilla keep an eye on him in Spain.

Making the move permanent would cost Verona around €10.5m, meaning they’ll want to make a profit on that going forward, perhaps even double it, which should give you an idea of how much the Hammers will need to spend going forward.
