West Ham United has joined the battle for Chelsea striker David Datro Fofana, according to AfricaFoot. This move comes amidst concerns at the London Stadium that the club is desperately short of attacking options.

New West Ham boss Julen Lopetegui is clearly keen to address the team’s shortcomings upfront. Chelsea, looking to raise funds through player sales, views Fofana as expendable.

West Ham has apparently already submitted a bid for the 21-year-old Ivorian striker. Fofana’s record of six goals in 32 appearances last season for Union Berlin and Burnley might raise eyebrows, but West Ham seems to believe in his potential.

West Ham’s pursuit of Fofana demonstrates their proactive approach in the transfer market. They have also been linked to established strikers like Callum Wilson and Youssef En-Nesyri.

The Hammers aren’t alone in their pursuit of Fofana. Everton is also reportedly in talks with the player’s representatives. West Ham must not only convince Chelsea to accept their offer but also persuade Fofana that their project aligns with his ambitions.

With the season approaching, West Ham needs a quick resolution to their striking woes. Whether Fofana is the answer remains to be seen, but one thing is certain: West Ham is leaving no stone unturned in their search for a new attacking spearhead.
