West Ham are set to renew interest in AFC Bournemouth striker Dominic Solanke, as per Sunday People (19 November, page 60).
The Hammers were looking to sign a striker during the summer transfer window and tried to sign the former Liverpool forward.
David Moyes is a keen admirer of the striker and saw a £40million bid turned down in August.
The 26-year-old striker has been in brilliant form this season and has scored six goals in 12 appearances for Bournemouth.
Sunday People claims that the Hammers want to revive their interest in the striker but he won’t come cheap. Solanke has three years left on his deal and it will take a big-money bid to lure him away.
Moyes failed to replace Gianluca Scamacca during the summer transfer window. The Italian striker joined the Hammers on a big-money transfer last summer but he proved to be a major disappointment.
With Michail Antonio approaching the fag end of his career, it is time for Moyes to look for new options in the forward department.
Solanke would be a smart signing for the club. He has scored for fun in the Championship and has got Premier League experience as well.
He is a hard-working player and can adapt to multiple roles. In theory, he should fit in Moyes’ system at the club.
Bournemouth are 16th in the Premier League table at the moment and they will be fighting to avoid relegation. It won’t be easy to lure Solanke as the Cherries will need to him to avoid the drop.
However, if West Ham can come up with a big offer, then Bournemouth could be tempted to do business in January.
