West Ham are highly likely to be in the market for a prolific striker in the summer transfer window ahead of next season as David Moyes looks to add competition for Michail Antonio in leading the Hammers’ line.
The Salzburg source indicates it would be unlikely that Daka would still be leading the line for Jesse Marsch’s Austrian Bundesliga champions next season, given both his impressive form and the interest in his services.
“During the summer transfer period, there will be a lot of inquiries from clubs in the top European leagues. Players will also leave us,” sporting director Christoph Freund confessed in the report.
The African marksman has enjoyed a productive spell in Austria this season, with 25 goals in 28 games in all competitions this season, including 18 in 16 domestic league matches.
Consequentially, his form has not gone unnoticed.
Salzburg have a rich tradition as something of a talent factory for attackers. Erling Haaland is a prime example of a world-class striker formerly leading the line in Salzburg.
