The Irons are gearing up for a potentially chaotic summer transfer window, with striker Fotis Ioannidis of Panathinaikos firmly on their radar, according to Greek journalist Giannis Chorianopoulos.

West Ham scouts have been busy tracking the 24-year-old Greek international, having watched him play on multiple occasions this season. Ioannidis has been on fire, bagging an impressive 23 goals, which has unsurprisingly attracted attention.

The Hammers aren’t the only ones interested in Ioannidis. Over 10 clubs are reportedly vying for his signature, but no official offers have been made yet.

With David Moyes expected to leave and talks with reported target Ruben Amorim in limbo, West Ham’s managerial situation remains unsettled. However, this hasn’t stopped the club’s recruitment team from identifying potential transfer targets.

Regardless of who the new manager is, a new striker is a top priority for West Ham. Ioannidis could be the answer.

Dubbed a “Greek goal God” by journalist Alan Nixon, Ioannidis seems to possess all the qualities the Hammers are looking for. He’s big, strong, has a knack for finding the net, and can link up well with midfielders.

Ioannidis’ age is another plus point. At 24, he still has room for improvement and could potentially hold a good resale value in the future.

It comes as no surprise that the Hammers aren’t alone in their pursuit of Ioannidis. The striker’s impressive form has attracted a lot of interest, and West Ham will need to act fast if they want to secure his signature.
