West Ham transfer boost as target reveals desire to play abroad

West Ham transfer target Alassane Plea has revealed that he would be open to a move abroad, boosting the Hammers chances of landing the forward, according to HITC.

The striker – who signed for Nice in 2014 – has been in fine form so far this season, netting on 15 occasions, to make him a serious target for a number of European clubs.

Plea is predominantly renowned as the type of player who plays in the centre of attack, but has also been known to feature on either wing – as the Hammers look to stregthen their attacking force.

The current Ligue 1 campaign has been Plea’s most prolific, and with the West London side failing to sign a quality striker in January, he could be the answer to their woes.

David Moyes’ side were given the boost when the forward admitted he would be open to a move abroad, during a recent interview.

“I have always said that going abroad would be something that would please me.

“One day, I hope to go, see another country, another football culture, learn another language and other things… That would make me enormously happy.

“Now, I have stages to reach. This is my fourth season at Nice.”
