Former Watford and Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu is “apparently keen” on a move to West Ham United amid reported interest from the club.
Calciomercato revealed at the start of the month that the Hammers had made a ‘concrete’ approach for the Udinese player and now @ExWHUemployee has confirmed that the 28-year-old could see himself in claret and blue next season.
What’s the latest?
Speaking on the West Ham Way podcast, the reliable insider revealed:
“He’s also supposedly good friends with Fornals. He’s keen on him coming.
“He could also play up front as well so he could be another winger that Moyes converts into a striker.
“Apparently Deulofeu is keen on a move as well.”
The four-capped Spain international made 127 Premier League appearances during his time in England scoring 20 goals and providing 24 assists.
With issues at centre-forward, the two-time u19 European champion could be just what manager David Moyes is looking for.
His versatility could be pivotal as West Ham look to bolster their attacking options in the summer.
