West Ham have reportedly reignited their interest in a former striker target, but will face competition from 4 of the ‘big 6’.

Despite two sensational performances in the past week, there is little doubt that West Ham need a replacement for Michail Antonio. Everyone is aware of the poor luck they’ve had when it comes to finding a potential suitor, but it seems like they may attempt to sign one of their long-term targets this Summer.

According to a report from journalist Graeme Bailey, the Hammers have once again shown interest in Lille’s Jonathan David. The Canadian has been in fine form this season, scoring 21 goals across all competitions and 10 in his last 11 games. 

David is one of those players that gets linked with a big move every year, but nothing ever comes to fruition. This year is no different as, alongside the Irons, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham are all monitoring his situation.

Given that he will only have a year remaining on his contract by the Summer, this could be the French side’s last chance to cash in on their most valuable asset before potentially losing him on a free transfer. Considering that they are in with a real chance of securing Champions League football though, they may even be able to convince him to sign a new deal.

If he is the striker that Steidten and the team want to replace Antonio, then they should do everything in their power to convince him to join. Tempting him over the other four may prove difficult, but the lure of Premier League and European football along with a better chance of breaking into the starting XI may just be enough.
