During the January transfer window, West Ham were linked with every conceivable striker on the market, and some who very much weren’t on the market.

Right at the end of the market, there was a link with Jean-Kévin Augustin.

To be frank, there didn’t seem to be great deal in the claims of Hammers interest in the RB Leipzig forward.

Now there’s something which may be more interesting.

Friday’s edition of L’Equipe looks at a group of players who have left PSG as youngsters.

For Augustin they say he’s not playing as much this season for Leipzig as he did in the last campaign, and say there was interest from England in January, with West Ham being the club named.

A summer transfer is ‘not excluded’ for the 21 year old, who was also linked with Everton in December of last year.

He’s started just three Bundesliga games this season, with a further 13 appearances as a substitute and six starts across the Europa League and DFB Pokal.

He has six goals to his name.

That return doesn’t seem so bad when it’s considered that despite all those appearances, he’s played for less than 1000 minutes in total.
