Report: Hammers linked with Villarreal attacker

West Ham has been linked to Villarreal attacker Karl Toko Ekambi. The Frenchman joined the Spanish side from French side Angers in the 2018 summer transfer window.

According toΒ Le 10Sport, several teams including West Ham are interested in signing the 27-year-old with Lyon and Newcastle United tracking the player.

The Spanish side have put a value of €25 million (Β£21.5m) on the Cameroon international but none of his admirers appears to be prepared to pay that kind of money.

Karl Toko-Ekambi has two and a half years remaining on his current contract. The Cameroonian has scored 24 goals and provided 10 assists in 62 games for Villarreal in the one and a half seasons at the Spanish club.

Karl Toko Ekambi is primarily a striker but has previously played as a winger for a large part of his career. The 27-year-old is a pacey attacker who likes to play on the shoulder of defenders, while his strong dribbling skills also allows him to drop deep to collect the ball and run at defences. He is a potent weapon in counter-attacking situations, while also being a wily striker in andΒ in and around the penalty area.

  4. West Ham and strikers is like a poisoned chalice.Sakho,Zaza,Callieri all drifting from club to club.We just cannot get a Danny Ings type to save our lives.Its 20 years since we had a player break the 20 goal barrier in John Hartson.

  5. Another ‘we tried to sign’ (but was never going to spend that much money really) player
