West Ham eyeing surprise move for £9m-rated wonderkid


West Ham are lining up a move for Lyon striker Nabil Fekir, according to The Sun.

It is well known that the Hammers are in the market for a marquee signing to kick-start the club’s first season in the Olympic Stadium.

So far there has been no joy in trying to secure a star name, but The Sun claim Slaven Bilic is turning his attention to the France international.

The 22-year-old has been impressive for Lyon in recent seasons, but was forced to miss much of last term after suffering a knee ligament injury.

But he still managed to net four goals in nine Ligue 1 appearances.

Fekir is a product of Lyon’s youth academy and has netted 18 goals in 52 Ligue 1 appearances since making his debut in 2013.

Transfermarkt.com value the youngster at just £9m but The Sun believe Lyon would demand a fee of around £20m.
