West Ham enter fight to sign 22-year-old attacker

Hoffenheim attacker Joelinton is now one of the goal-scorers who are being linked with a move to the Premier League to join West Ham in the summer.

The 22-year-old striker has done well to rack up seven goals for his team this campaign and that has seen him catch the eye of foreign clubs.

A report by Calciomercato claims the Hammers have entered the fight to sign the Brazilian youngster to fill the void left in their striking department.

Joelinton is a striker who is capable of playing through the middle as the main number 9 or out wide as one of the wingers in attack.

Due to the fact that the South American star’s contract does not expire until 2022, Hoffenheim are likely to demand a considerable amount to sell him to any suitors.

West Ham may find it to be a necessary move to invest some of the profits gained from remaining in the Premier League in a potent striker this summer.
