West Ham United boss Julen Lopetegui is actively seeking attacking reinforcements ahead of the new season. While Luis Guilherme’s arrival bolsters their frontline, the Hammers remain on the hunt for more options.

One player heavily linked with a move to the London Stadium is Sunderland winger Jack Clarke. West Ham reportedly now lead the race for the 23-year-old’s signature

Previously, Southampton presented competition for Clarke. However,  iNews reports that the Saints have withdrawn their interest due to Sunderland’s £18 million asking price

This news could be a positive development for West Ham. While the £18 million price tag might seem steep, the diminishing competition strengthens their position. The Irons might now be able to secure Clarke without a bidding war.

With Said Benrahma’s permanent transfer to Lyon confirmed and Barcelona entering the race for Jaden Philogene, West Ham urgently need wide reinforcements. While Guilherme is a welcome addition, he alone cannot address the need for depth.

    I think he would be a wise purchase and looks a decent player.
    Being British as well, that’s important.

    • Harry Cole says:

      When you look at the inflated cost of of Premier League academy products, Jack Clarke represents far better value for money and is worth the risk at £18 million.
