The immediate future of West Ham United striker Ashley Fletcher is in doubt after he failed to feature in many games last year.
Fletcher stayed at West Ham rather than heading out on loan but Slaven Bilic tended to prefer loan flop Jonathan Calleri up front towards the end of the season, while Fletcher was limited to a few substitute cameos.
According to The Mirror’s Live Transfer Blog [Saturday 17th June, 22:43 GMT], Huddersfield Town are ready to make a £5m bid for Ashley Fletcher.
Huddersfield Town, who were recently promoted to the Premier League via the play-offs, are in the market for a new striker who can score the goals to keep them afloat in the top division next year.
After giving up their pursuit of Leeds United striker Chris Wood, the Terriers have diverted their attention to West Ham’s young striker Ashley Fletcher.
The 21-year-old is a physical presence up front, offering pace and strength and abundance.
After graduating through the Manchester United academy and enjoying a profitable loan spell at Barnsley, the former England under-20 international’s career has come to a bit of a standstill and he might fancy a move away from the London Stadium.
Huddersfield could offer him a lifeline with a £5m deal but it remains to be seen whether West Ham are willing to let the starlet go permanently.
