West Ham must walk away now as club reportedly demand £25 million for 26-year-old striker in the summer transfer window.
First order of business will be beating Fiorentina in the Europa Conference League final in six day’s time. However, once that’s out the way, Moyes’s attention will undoubtedly turn to transfers.
However, this now seems like a deal that the Hammers need to walk way from…
West Ham must walk away from 26-year-old striker deal in summer transfer window
According to Corriere dello Sport (print edition May 31st, page 22), Salernitana are looking to activate their purchase option on Boulaye Dia, before selling him on for a huge profit.
The Italian side are said to be looking for around €30 million (£25 million) for the 26-year-old.
Now, the Senegalese hitman is a decent striker. He’s similar to Michail Antonio in the way that he plays. He is powerful, has decent pace and is a pretty good finisher.
However, Dia is worth nowhere near £25 million in my book, especially considering the fact that he is a totally unproven commodity in the Premier League.
West Ham could and should be aiming for a lot better than Boulaye Dia in the summer transfer window in my opinion.
Listen, I actually wouldn’t mind if we signed him for somewhere in the region of £12-15 million, but £25 million is just too much money.
Moyes would be better served in trying to get the best out of Scamacca and setting up his team in a way that would see the Italian flourish.
