West Ham United are reviving their interest in French forward Elye Wahi, a target they missed out on last year due to transfer market complications.

West Ham had been tracking Wahi during his time at Montpellier, and the young forward was reportedly keen on a move to the London club but failed to agree terms. Wahi ended up joining Lens for £30 million. While Lens failed to replicate their prior season’s success, Wahi showcased his talent, scoring 12 goals and contributing 4 assists.

Reports from L’Equipe suggest Wahi is on his way out of Lens this summer, prompting West Ham to reignite their interest. French journalists claim the Hammers are “positioning themselves” for a renewed attempt to sign the 21-year-old. Get French Football News (GFFN) corroborates Wahi’s likely departure and mentions interest from other Premier League clubs.

West Ham face competition for Wahi’s signature, but his previous interest in joining the club and his impressive performances in Ligue 1 could be tipping points in their favour. Whether they can secure his signing this time around remains to be seen, but West Ham’s pursuit of Wahi adds another layer to their summer transfer activity
