West Ham United are currently in positive discussions with Montpellier regarding the potential signing of forward Elye Wahi.

The Frenchman, who is valued at €35 million, has also attracted interest from London rivals Chelsea.

West Ham are eager to secure important signings before the transfer window closes, particularly in the attacking department.

The departure of Gianluca Scamacca has left a void in the centre-forward position that the club is looking to fill.

While Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun remains a target, his €60 million price tag may pose a challenge.

As a result, West Ham has been exploring other options, including Elye Wahi. Recent reports suggest that Wahi favors a move to West Ham over other clubs.

Chelsea, on the other hand, has been focused on securing midfield targets and may now turn their attention back to Wahi.

It is crucial for West Ham to finalize the deal quickly before other clubs make a move.

Montpellier has already rejected a bid from Chelsea and is demanding €35 million for the striker, who scored 19 goals last season.

West Ham has the necessary funds to complete the transfer, and negotiations are expected to progress rapidly in the coming days.

In addition to Wahi, West Ham manager David Moyes is also interested in bringing in Mohammed Kudus from Ajax to strengthen the forward line.
