West Ham Plot to Sign Ex-Arsenal Striker Akpom

Published

on

West Ham United are close to signing ex-Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom from Paok Salonika having failed to land him in the summer.

The Hammers ended an eight game winless run with a surprise 1-0 win at Chelsea on Saturday.

But the London club are still keen to add some firepower up front following poor forms of summer signings Sebastien Haller and Albian Ajeti.

West Ham splashed out a club record £45million for Haller in the summer. Although the Frenchman started on a positive note, scoring four goals from his first seven league games, he has drawn a blank in his last six games.

Ajeti was brought in from Basel but has made next to no impact on the few occasions he has been involved.

And according to the Athletic, West Ham have enquired about Akpom, 24, who has fallen out of favour at Greek side PAOK Salonika.

Akpom joined the Gunners at the age of six. And aside from several loan spells – stayed with the club until his Greek move in 2018.

Despite leading the line for PAOK last season – who remained unbeaten in all domestic matches – Akpom has started just three league games so far this campaign which has given West Ham hope of securing his service.
