West Ham United transfer news: £35 million signing race Montpellier striker Elye Wahi is getting hot as Chelsea table their first bid.

According to RMC Sport journalist Fabrice Hawkins, West Ham United have joined Chelsea, Fulham, and German Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt in the hunt to acquire Montpellier attacker Elye Wahi.

According to the French journalist, who took to his personal Twitter account on 4 August, Chelsea have already submitted an initial offer of roughly £26 million plus add-ons, but Montpellier are reported to want over £35 million to sell the 19-goal forward.Eintracht Frankfurt has been attempting to persuade the “prolific” teenage forward in recent days, but West Ham, Fulham, and Chelsea remain in the hunt.

According to RMC Sport journalist Hawkins, “Chelsea, West Ham, Fulham, and Frankfurt are all interested in Elye Wahi.”In recent days, the Germans have been insisting on persuading the player.Chelsea made an initial offer of 30 million euros including bonuses.”Montpellier wants about €40m (£35m).”Following the £105 million sale of Declan Rice, the Hammers will almost probably undergo a substantial rebuild this summer to guarantee David Moyes’ team is ready to challenge from the start when the season begins in mid-August.While finding a successor for the England international is the club’s top priority right now, following conversations with several potential targets, signing a striker should be high on the list this summer as well.

Antonio isn’t the only striker who might leave the club; Italian forward Gianluca Scamacca is also expected to leave the London Stadium, with a move to Serie A side Atalanta on the cards (Fabrizio Romano, 4 August).Given the desperate market for strikers these days, West Ham United will need to move quickly to secure any potential target, and Wahi certainly fits the bill given his profile and stunning potential, but it’s clear the East Londoners face a stiff fight for his signature, and it’s a fight the Hammers must bring all the tools they need to compete for the Frenchman’s signature.

The Hammers should also make an aggressive bid if they want to capture this electrifying rising striker, who scored 19 goals and helped five others in 33 Ligue 1 outings last season, making him an attractive prospect for West Ham United fans.Frankfurt and Chelsea are both interested in him, so the club should keep an eye on him.
In other West Ham news, a wanted-again forward is nearing a move to an Italian club, with David Sullivan demanding roughly £10 million to sell.
