West Ham could finally secure one of their long-term striker targets for an absolute bargain this Summer.

It feels like every single transfer window you could accurately predict that West Ham will be linked with the same 3 or 4 players. They’ve already weighed up a move for En-Nesyri, but now it’s time for them to consider one of their other go-to targets.

Jonathan David is someone that the Hammers were very keen on bringing in while David Moyes was still manager and it seems like this interest has carried on with Julen Lopetegui at the wheel, according to Florian Plettenberg.

Despite interest from Chelsea and Manchester United, the East London side could have a good chance of securing his signature due to his incredibly low price tag of £17 million.

The news has been met with reception by West Ham fans but it’s really not clear as to why. Since joining Lille in 2020, the Canadian has reached double digits in every single Ligue 1 season, scoring 19 in the last campaign alone. He possesses good pace, great linkup play and a keen eye for goal.

Realistically, the biggest question mark has to be around if he is really a Tim Steidten target. He’s someone that Sullivan has identified in the past and, while it could be coincidence, it seems strange that the German would also be just as keen on bringing him to the London Stadium. That said, the talent is clearly there for everyone to see so perhaps it’s not too much of a stretch to believe they both admire him.
