West Ham in hunt to sign Giannis Konstantelias

West Ham will be looking to end the season on a high and secure a European spot next season. 

Irrespective of whether David Moyes stays or leaves, the Hammers should look to sign a new striker and at least two midfielders. Kalvin Phillips was signed on loan from Manchester City but he has proved to be a disaster, and West Ham should not look to sign him permanently.

The Hammers should also look to bring in an attacking midfielder. According to a report from the Sunday Mirror (14 April, page 71), West Ham are tracking PAOK’s Giannis Konstantelias in the summer transfer window.

West Ham scouts have watched the 21-year-old closely and have made frequent checks on the playmaker. He is a versatile playmaker who can operate out wide and has enjoyed another “eye-catching” campaign in the Greek Super League.

Premier League rivals Aston Villa, Bournemouth, Brighton, and Brentford have also sent their scouts to watch him closely. Last weekend, the Hammers observed Konstantelias who is valued at just under £10m.

He has previously attracted interest from Turkish giants Galatasaray and has won six caps for the Greece senior side.

Giannis Konstantelias would be terrific for West Ham

The exciting young playmaker has been outstanding this season for PAOK. He has managed seven goals and three assists in 25 league games. He has also scored in the domestic cup competitions and in the Europa Conference League.

He was named the Greek Super League’s Young Player of the Season in 2023, and he seems to be one of the most in-demand players in Europe at the moment.

With so many Premier League clubs vying for his signature, West Ham may have to submit a tempting offer to lure him away. He can score goals from midfield and play on the flanks, and his price tag makes him a bargain signing if the Hammers can pull off the deal.

In other West Ham news, the Hammers are in the hunt to sign £15m attacker.
