Report from France has suggested that Nigeria’s Super Eagles player Terem Moffi is no longer playing for Lorient, a French Ligue 1 side.
Rather the striker is now a West Ham player.
Though Heritage Times HT couldn’t authenticate the report, French publication Mercato Plein claimed that Moffi has now joined West Ham from Lorient for €24 million (£21 million).
Recently, Hammers boss, David Moyes, has been on the trail of Moffi.
But, there has always been a discrepancy on the fee between he Ligue 1 and Premier League clubs.
It now seems as though a deal has been struck between Lorient and West Ham, with Moffi closing in on a move to England from France.
The powerful and pacy front man has been really impressing in Ligue 1 with Lorient this season, and his performances have drawn attention from various clubs.
Again, Mercato Plein claimed that the Nigeria international striker has signed a deal with the Hammers until 2026.
And West Ham has allegedly paid £21 million to Lorient for his service.
Moffi has banged 12 goals in 18 games for Lorient in the current season.
With Michail Antonio having regressed badly and potentially heading out the door, Moyes has already acted by signing Danny Ings.
