West Ham Make Enquiry About Signing £21m Rated Congolese Marksman

West Ham have enquired about signing Beijing Guoan striker Cedric Bakambu, according to reports in the French media.

The Congolese international has been a big success in the Chinese Super League, having scored 29 in 39 appearances since his €40m move to the Far East in January 2018.

However, it appears Bakambu is keen on a move back to Europe, with his club prepared to sell the player for around €25m (£21m).



Whether such a fee would attract the Hammers, it remains to be seen. The London club are said to be looking at loan deals this month but signing a striker is one of their main priorities.

Sebastien Haller has not had a great deal of support up front this season, with Albian Ajeti having failed to hit his straps since his arrival from Basel in the summer.

At 28 years of age, Bakambu is in the prime of his career. With an impressive goal record as well, he could just be what they are looking for.
