Striker tipped to become a Hammer

South American striker Taty Castellanos could become a Hammer if a Brazilian journalist is to be believed.

Earlier this week it was reported by the Daily Mirror that West Ham will meet the $16 million (£12.7m)  asking price for New York City FC MLS striker Taty Castellanos.

 The 23-year-old Argentine won the Golden Boot last season and continues to be one of the best strikers in MLS this year with seven goals in ten league games, and 11 goals in 13 competitive matches.

West Ham was first linked to Castellanos during the January transfer window, and fresh reports resurfaced last week detailing the Hammer’s renewed interest in Castellanos.

Brazilian journalist Paco Belmonte yesterday claimed on social media that West Ham has reached an agreement and Castellanos will become a Hammer on 1st July.

There is no doubt that West Ham’s head of recruitment will have known and scouted Castellanos while at Manchester City and reports suggest the Hammers have scouted him again since.

The player certainly matches what David Moyes is looking for, a young hungry striker happy to play understudy to Michail Antonio and not a marque striker.

We will attempt to find out whether this report has any legs, but in the meantime here is his video reel below.

  1. The guy would be lucky to score 10 in the Championship. Half of his goals are on the back of dodgy MLS defenders and the other half are pens.

  2. Really , maybe I’m to optimistic it the MLS is not anywhere as competitive as PL . The guy might score 10- 11 inPL we need better !

  3. As moyes is getting in nunez or David then his a good back up striker as was at city and not a bad champions of Premier league to be in and still young . Won’t be the price to open a Scottish wallet slowly either.

  4. Sorry but that’s not good enough and is anyone else concerned about this back up to Antonio thing , the man who has scored 5 goals in 28 games in 2022 and is now 32 , we should be aiming for much bigger and better
