Hammers striker target in demand

West Ham’s January striker target Boulaye Dia is attracting plenty of interest.

The Hammers were heavily linked with a potential swoop for the Stade Reims striker, along with a number of other forwards.

Dia has been in excellent form for his club this season and has scored 12 goals in 23 games.

Sport Witness, who carry a new report of interest in the forward, claim that the Hammers did not want to spend a big fee on a player with a lack of general top-flight experience.

Le10Sport now claims that there is a steady queue of clubs looking to sign Dia in the summer.

Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt are the latest in the race, while Italian clubs Napoli and AC Milan have both expressed an interest, as have French side Marseille.

Reims are aware Dia has a contract until next summer so this could be their last chance to get a decent fee.

It remains to be seen if the Hammers will reignite their interest.
