Lookman too expensive?

West Ham United could be set for a busy summer transfer window, with uncertainty surrounding Lucas Paqueta potentially forcing them into the market for attacking reinforcements.

The potential suspension of Paqueta has cast a shadow over West Ham’s attacking options. With only Michail Antonio and Danny Ings, functioning as central strikers, the loss of Paqueta would leave a significant void outside the centre-forward position. Jarrod Bowen and Mohammed Kudus would be the only remaining reliable attacking options for manager Julen Lopetegui.

New manager Lopetegui, has identified the need for attacking reinforcements. The potential Paqueta absence only strengthens this need, making the summer transfer window a crucial period for the Hammers.

Ademola Lookman’s dazzling performance in Atalanta’s Europa League final victory has reportedly caught the eye of West Ham. His impressive 10 goals and 6 assists in Serie A, combined with his experience in the Premier League, make him a potentially valuable addition to Lopetegui’s attacking setup.

However, West Ham may face a challenge in securing Lookman’s signature. His recent success is likely to have inflated his price tag, now reported to be north of £30 million, potentially exceeding the Hammers’ current transfer budget.

West Ham’s transfer strategy for the attacking line hinges on the ongoing saga surrounding Lucas Paqueta. The possibility of his absence, coupled with Lopetegui’s desire for reinforcements, creates a sense of urgency in the transfer market. While Ademola Lookman appears as a potential solution, acquiring him might prove a financial hurdle for the Hammers.

    I’m sorry, but even though he bagged a hat trick against an unbeaten Leverkusen last week and has an impressive record this season… As soon as I hear the name ‘Lookman’ my mind instantly springs to the botched Panenka penalty he took against us… and I just can’t overlook that 😂

    Bloke ain’t that good. Just looks good in an average side. Money would be better spent elsewhere

  • Pongo says:

    He was crap when we last saw him
    this side of the water his value is between 5 and 10 million top whack and we need someone far better than him.
