West Ham United are looking to improve their attacking options in the summer and they are thought to be keen on the Besiktas striker Cyle Larin.
The 26-year-old scored 23 goals in all competitions this past season and his performances have attracted the attention of the London club.
According to Fanatik (via Sportwitness), the Premier League side are in constant contact with the Turkish outfit and the representatives of the striker.
It will be interesting to see if they come forward with an official bid in the coming weeks.
According to the report, the player is valued at around €20 million.
The Hammers sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax during the January transfer window and they are yet to replace him. The Londoners should be able to afford the asking price for Larin thanks to the proceeds from Haller’s sale.
David Moyes has been overly reliant on Michail Antonio for goals this past season and the Hammers will have to improve on him if they want to do well in the Premier League and the Europa League next season.
Larin is at the peak of his powers right now and he could prove to be a useful addition to the West Ham attack.
Furthermore, the reported asking price seems quite reasonable for a player of his quality. He is a reliable goalscorer but it remains to be seen whether the player can adapt to English football if the move goes through.
