West Ham United haven’t made contact with Benfica over a summer season transfer for striker Darwin Nunez, in response to studies by Claret & Hugh.

The attacking dynamo has had a superb 2021/22 season – bagging 38 objectives throughout all competitions for the Liga Portugal outfit.

David Moyes is reluctant to spend a big chunk of his transfer price range solely on a striker. Nevertheless, he “unquestionably” would have finished if the Irons had a sensible likelihood of bringing the Uruguayan to east London. 

The Scot thought he had efficiently couped the 22-year-old after the Hammers positioned their £60million bid on the final day of the January window. 

Regardless of being on the highest of their listing of signings, the probabilities of bringing him to the London Stadium have been slashed to zero. 


If these studies are true, it’s a big disappointment, particularly if you happen to think about the character during which they missed out on Nunez. 

Fabrizio Romano advised the Wondergoal podcast [May 11] that the Hammers may have signed the teenager had they elevated their bid by £8.5million

In January, everyone knew concerning the striker however the curiosity is nowhere close to as heavy because it at present is. 

With the deal seemingly off the desk – Moyes shall be kicking himself that he didn’t spend the additional bit of cash that would not only assist the Irons sooner or later however may have utterly modified their 2021/22 marketing campaign as they simply fell brief on all fronts.

The Hammers must flip their consideration elsewhere – in the event that they haven’t already – to bolster their placing ranks as a result of even when they do now make contact, it is vitally unlikely to see him coming to east London.
