According to sources, four more names have emerged as possible candidates to succeed Sebastien Haller at West Ham.
The selling of Haller to Ajax for £20.2m was confirmed by West Ham. This means they are making a huge loss on the striker for whom they paid more than £ 40 million in 2019.
After making the club-record transfer, Haller struggled to live up to his price tag. He only scored 10 goals in the Premier League throughout one and a half seasons.
Therefore, in the January transfer window, West Ham agreed to cut down their losses on him. Now, their emphasis must turn to seek an acceptable replacement.
The Hammers are keen on the Chelsea striker, according to Eurosport, who is considering his future.
At the end of the season, Giroud is out of contract and wants to find regular match time until the European Championships in the summer.
It is said that it will be “trying” for the French international to remain in London. Therefore, West Ham is trying to figure out how much it will cost them to make the offer.
Eurosport also confirms that, like Reims ‘Boulaye Dia, the Sparta Prague youngster Adam Hlozek is a choice.
The Sun also says, as an alternative, that Graziano Pelle is a backup option. The striker has just left Shandong Luneng, the Chinese team, and after a spell with Southampton a few years ago, he might return to the Premier League.
