Report: Qatari outfit ready to rival Everton and West Ham for Claudio Beauvue

France Football

The Guingamp striker is one of the most wanted strikers in Europe after a great season.

Everton and West Ham have both been linked with moves for French striker Claudio Beauvue this summer. The Guardian reported in April that the two teams were leading the way for the player, who has had a great season in Ligue 1 with En Avant Guingamp.

The striker, who has confirmed he wants to leave the club, had an excellent 2014-15 - scoring 23 goals in 47 appearances for the French outfit. So there is no wonder the likes of West Ham and Everton are keen.

Although, they are not alone, with a team willing to spend a lot of money also keen. L'Equipe are reporting that Qatari side El Jaish are interested in signing the player.

They report that the Middle East offer would be his best financially, although it is not known whether he would fancy a switch out of Europe.

West Ham and Everton are both in need of a striker this summer. The Hammers have long term concerns over the fitness of Andy Carroll whilst Enner Valencia tailed off toward the end of last term. Everton are over reliant on Romelu Lukaku up top and in support they only have Arouna Kone, who has not impressed in an Everton shirt.
