According to Calciomercato, West Ham United are interested in bringing Hoffenheim striker Andrej Kramaric back to the Premier League this summer.

The Hammers are expected to be back in the market for strikers this summer, with doubts lingering over the futures of Marko Arnautovic, Andy Carroll, Javier Hernandez and Lucas Perez.

Manuel Pellegrini and co will have their sights on a number of strikers around the world, and en ex-Premier League flop appears to be on the radar.

 

Calciomercato report that West Ham want to land Hoffenheim hitman Kramaric, who has been enjoying a stunning season with the German side.

Kramaric, 27, has smashed 20 goals in just 32 games this season, whilst picking up four assists as he has totally rebuilt his reputation following his famed spell at Leicester City.

Leicester signed Kramaric for £9million (BBC) from Rijeka in January 2015, but scored just four times in 20 games before being loaned out to Hoffenheim, and then sold permanently.

Now a regular Croatian international, Kramaric is showing just how good he can be, and his record for Hoffenheim stands at 56 goals in 124 games.

Technically gifted with great versatility to play out wide or as a number, Kramaric could be a superb signing for West Ham if they're convinced he can succeed in the Premier League second time around – but may be wary of over-spending on a forward about to turn 28.
