Hammers eye French forward

Filed: Monday, 16th April 2018

West Ham are one of several Premier League clubs taking a close look at Nice forward Alassane Plea, say reports.

The 25-year-old, who began his career with Lyon has scored 19 goals in 41 appearances for the OGC this season and, as such, has seen his list of admirers grow rapidly - with the Hammers just one party said to be keeping tabs on his situation.

And his form of late has been especially strong, having scored eight goals in his last five outings - including a four-ghoal haul in a 5-2 win at Guingamp last month.

Yet to represent the full national side, Plea - who is contracted to Nice until 2021 and is said to have a 50million release clause - has represented France at all levels from Under 18 to Under 21 - a total of 26 appearances between 2010 and 2014.

Leicester and Bournemouth are said to have already made enquiries into signing Plea, who would cost in the region of 25million to prise from Nice's hands. La Liga side Atletico Madrid have also expressed an interest, as have the Bundersliga's Borussia Monchengladbach.
