However, according to The Athletic, the striker only scored two goals in his last 19 league games.

Premier League dream

Dia has spoken about his desire to play in the Premier League before.

The striker told Progress in February 2021, as translated by HITC Sport at the time: “The Premier League attracts me – but it attracts everyone. 

“It is a championship I would like to discover, one of the best in the world. If I have the opportunity to play there, it will be a reward for me.”

West Ham transfer this summer?

David Moyes’s West Ham need to sign a new striker this summer.

Sebastien Haller has to be replaced by the Hammers.

West Ham simply cannot rely on just Michail Antonio, who is not a natural striker.

Moreover, West Ham will play in the Europa League next season as well.
