West Ham are set to make an opening €10m (£8.9m) bid for 24-year-old Senegalese attacker Boulaye Dia from Reims according to French TV channel Telefoot La Chain Du Foot.
Last week the agent of Boulaye Dia has confirmed that West Ham have made an approach to sign the Reims striker. He also reveals he is unsure if Dia will move in this window, as he believes his client could be able to attract more clubs in the summer.
The 24-year-old has scored 10 Ligue 1 goals and assisted once in 16 appearances this term making him one of the highest scorers in the French top-flight league.
Dia scored 10 league goals in 42 games across the last two seasons and is proving to be a real quality finisher in Europe.
Dia’s Stade Reims contract runs until 2022 and it is claimed he is David Moyes number one striker target.
However, the Hammers could face competition for Dia’s signature. Arsenal, Marseille and Lyon are all thought to be big fans of the young striker.
