West Ham are reportedly keeping a close eye on many strikers across the Europe.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, West Ham will look to sign Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.
The 24-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The France international was signed by Lyon in August 2018 from Celtic for a fee of 22 million euros. The 24-year-old has a contract until 2023 with the club.
Dembele has played 103 times for Lyon since signing from Celtic, scoring 44 goals and creating 13 assists in that time.
The 24-year-old is considered to be one of the best strikers in France.
The France international is believed to be available for transfer, with David Moyes now keen to bring him to West Ham.
Moussa Dembele is widely regarded as a key transfer target for West Ham.
The France international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of striker Moyes wants to target in the winter transfer window.
The Hammers are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
Dembele provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. The 24-year-old would provide a good variety to West Ham’s attack. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.
According to the report, “West Ham United are eyeing Lyon striker Moussa Dembele. Dembele has struggled for form so far this season and France Football says Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas no longer sees him as untouchable. And watching developments closely is West Ham United. Aulas would prefer a loan arrangement in an effort for Dembele to rediscover his best form and recover his value. However, he isn’t ruling out selling the striker. A move to West Ham would represent a return to London for Dembele, having come through the youth system at Fulham.”
