West Ham keen on Coventry striker Viktor Gyokeres

West Ham United are keeping tabs on Coventry City striker Viktor Gyokeres ahead of a possible move this summer, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Coventry star Gyokeres was instrumental in his side’s run to the Championship Playoff final and enjoyed a hugely successful season with the Sky Blues. The 25-year-old Sweden international scored 21 goals and laid 12 assists in 49 appearances for Coventry as they lost the Playoff final to Luton Town on penalties.

Gyokeres has caught the eye with his consistent performance for the Sky Blues and many clubs all over Europe are interested in signing him, including UEFA Europa Conference League champions West Ham.

The former Swansea and Brighton striker has only one year left on his contract with the club and is keen to leave this summer, and his club’s owner wishes to sell him for a pricey sum.

The Hammers are looking to sign a new striker this summer as they face the possibility of losing Gianluca Scamacca to AS Roma next season, and Gyokeres is one of the names on their list.

Gyokeres will be keen to move to a Premier League club despite interest from Sporting Lisbon as he failed to make much of an impact in his first spell in the competition. He failed to make a single league appearance in his time as a Brighton player.

A move to West Ham makes sense for the Swede as he has adapted to the English game and has a well-rounded skillset that will make him a better fit than Scamacca for David Moyes’ team next season.
