According to claims by the French outlet Le10Sport, French giants Monaco are showing interest in signing West Ham United striker Sebastien Haller.
West Ham agreed a club-record £ 45 million contract to the 26-year-old striker from Eintracht Frankfurt last summer. The striker has failed to make a big impact in the Premier League, however. He scored 20 goals in 41 appearances during the 2018/19 Bundesliga campaign but has only managed to hit the target seven times this season. He has become a peripheral figure under David Moyes, and the Hammers could offload him during the summer.
Moyes, who will be keen to carve the squad to his taste, is likely to bring his player selection this summer. Haller doesn’t seem suited in his system.
Post-coronavirus finances would be tight for most teams in Europe and the Hammers would be no exception. Therefore, he may need to sell some of their players for transfer to raise their kitty.
The article says Monaco is planning a move for the striker. West Ham would claim £36 million for their talisman.
Wissam Ben Yedder will probably leave the club and Monaco has designated Haller as a potential replacement.
While Michail Antonio has done a good job when playing as a lone striker, Moyes will look forward to getting in top quality this summer.
