Report: Hammers to rival Everton for 19 goal striker

West Ham have shown interest in Canada strike Cyle Larin according to a report by Sports Witness 

The 26-year-old plays for Besiktas in the Turkish Super Lig this season, scoring 19 goals in 39 appearances across all competitions.

The latest claim follows a report from Turkish publication¬†FotoMac that Besiktas could be looking to cash in on Larin, who will be entering the final year of his current deal next season, and they could be convinced to sell with a “good offer.”

The 15-time Turkish champions reportedly paid just under ¬£2 million for Larin’s transfer from Orlando City in 2018.

Sport Witness says that Everton holds an interest also. If Larin were to head to England, he would become only the 11th Canadian to play in the Premier League. The last Canadian to suit up in the Premier League was midfielder Scott Arfield who spent 2016 to 2018 with Burnley.

The Hammers last Candanian player was goalkeeper Craig Forrest.
