West Ham United are looking eastward in their pursuit of attacking reinforcements, with a reported bid for Ludogorets forward Ruan Seko.

The 23-year-old Brazilian has caught the eye of manager Julen Lopetegui with his performances in the Bulgarian league. Seko bagged an impressive 19 goals in 50 appearances for Ludogorets across all competitions last season, establishing himself as a focal point of their attack.

According to Tema Sport, West Ham have tabled a £7.6 million offer to secure Seko’s services. This price tag reflects both Seko’s potential and the relative risk involved in the transfer.

While Seko has thrived in Bulgaria, the Premier League presents a much stiffer challenge. The physicality and intensity of the English top flight could expose any weaknesses in his game. Adapting to this new environment could take time, requiring patience from both the club and the fans.

Despite the inherent gamble, Seko possesses qualities that could bolster West Ham’s attacking options and at a young age, Seko has the potential to refine his skills further under the guidance of Lopetegui.

The potential signing of Seko hinges on West Ham’s willingness to take a calculated risk. While his talent is undeniable, his ability to translate his Bulgarian success to the Premier League remains to be seen.
