West Ham-linked forward Jonas Wind available for £11m - report
West Ham United have learnt the price tag of transfer target Jonas Wind, according to Ekstra Bladet.
The FC Copenhagen striker was linked with a move to the London Stadium [via Jeunes Footeux] last month and was said to be valued at around £16.9million.
However, this new report in Danish media on Monday claims that this figure has now gone down, suggesting that Wind will be available for between £10m and £11m.
It adds that only Premier League clubs are likely to pay that figure in the January transfer window, claiming that there is more chance of a deal being done next summer instead.
A good deal
Wind’s price tag is certainly one that West Ham will be able to afford and this seems like it would be a good deal for the East London side.
The striker has scored 10 goals and registered six assists in 25 games in all competitions this season and at just 22 years old has plenty of potential.
He featured for Denmark at Euro 2020 in the summer and has been tipped to be a key man for the national team over the next decade.
At 6ft 3in, Wind is able to play a targetman role, holding up balls and bringing others into play, but he also possesses strong technical ability.
As the season goes on, West Ham will need greater squad depth – particularly upfront where there are currently very few options behind top scorer Michail Antonio.
The Jamaican international struggled with a hamstring injury last season and with the Hammers set to progress in the Europa League, the games will come thick and fast in the new year.
