Hammers Struggle to Attract Championship Star

West Ham United‘s bid to sign Leeds United winger Crysencio Summerville faces a significant hurdle, according to The Sun.

The 22-year-old Dutchman, crowned Championship Player of the Season after a stellar campaign with 19 league goals, has attracted interest from several Premier League clubs. West Ham finds itself in a five-way battle for his signature, but the frontrunners appear to be Chelsea and Liverpool.

The Hammers, along with Bournemouth and Crystal Palace, need to convince Summerville that a move to the London Stadium is preferable to the allure of Anfield or Stamford Bridge.

Despite Leeds’ failure to win promotion, Summerville’s performances haven’t gone unnoticed. His impressive goal tally makes him a highly sought-after winger.

With the uncertain future of Lucas Paqueta and a limited attacking pool beyond Jarrod Bowen and Mohammed Kudus, West Ham desperately needs reinforcements. New manager Julen Lopetegui may choose to utilise forgotten man Maxwel Cornet, but acquiring dynamic wingers remains a priority.

Summerville’s impressive Championship season and Leeds’ failure to return to the Premier League make him a natural target for top-flight clubs seeking to capitalise on the situation.

While the prospect of European football offered by Chelsea and Liverpool is undeniably attractive, West Ham might present a clearer path to regular first-team action for Summerville.

Summerville’s £40 million price tag presents a financial obstacle for West Ham. However, their successful acquisition of Mohammed Kudus last summer, despite competing offers, suggests that a deal is not entirely out of the question.

However, West Ham faces an uphill battle to secure Summerville’s signature. The financial muscle and European aspirations of Chelsea and Liverpool pose a significant challenge. However, West Ham’s potential for consistent playing time and their recent transfer success under Tim Steidten could still hold some weight in the race for the coveted winger.

      In which case let Liverpool or Chelsea have him. It’s not as if WH can compete.

  • B says:

    If that’s the price for Summerville, let him go to any of the circus’ with more ££’s than sense.

  • Deathblow says:

    Good. He’s another Benrahma. Looks like the real deal one minute and utterly average the next. Bottled the play-off final just like Benny bottled Brentford’s play-off semi-final 2nd leg in 2020. When we bought him after that I was astonished and said Ollie Watkins, not this guy.
