West Ham interested in signing Everton striker Moise Kean – report
West Ham United are interested in making a move for Everton striker Moise Kean in the summer, according to Tuttosport.
The Hammers are in the market to bolster their attacking department ahead of the next campaign.
As per the new reports, the London-based club have made enquiries about Kean who is currently spending a two-year loan with the Italian club Juventus.
The news comes at a time when Serie A giants are trying to figure out the possibility of selling the Italian striker at a sufficient price.
It is believed that the Turin-based club are now searching for a generous club to move the striker in the upcoming transfer window.

Before making the move for Kean, West Ham must take into account the striker’s track record in the Premier League where he has only notched up two goals and as many assists in 32 appearances.
The Hammers have heavily relied on goals from Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio this season with the former attracting interest from other English clubs ahead of the next campaign.
If Bowen does leave, West Ham will need a reliable goal-scorer to replace him and Kean’s record in the English top-flight doesn’t inspire much confidence.
Kean rejoined Juventus on a two-year loan deal during the last summer transfer window as a replacement for the outgoing Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 22-year-old has scored five goals along with providing three assists in 31 appearances for the Old Lady in the ongoing campaign.
In total, the Italy international has scored 39 times in senior club football in 159 matches for four different sides — Juventus, PSG, Everton and Hellas Verona.
