BREAKING NEWS:West Ham has signed Napoli attacker  which has been Aston Villa long time target

West Ham could be the potential destination for Napoli ace Hirving Lozano this summer, according to the player’s former agent Alessandro Monfrecola.

According to the publication, Monfrecola believes either the Hammers or Aston Villa could make a move for the winger.

Monfrecola noted that Lozano failed to live up to the expectations of Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis this season, as his side finally lifted Serie A again.

“West Ham’s proposal for Lozano? I think if Lozano leaves Napoli he will do it for an English club,” Monfrecola said on Radio CRC, as quoted by SportItalia.

“The rumours that reach me from Mexico tell me that there are interests from English clubs. I think Aston Villa or West Ham will be the solution for Lozano.

“He had a year below his expectations, so such a substantial salary in view of De Laurentiis’ salaries is not good.”

Exciting prospect

Lozano was once of the most sought-after attackers in Europe not so long ago, with the Mexican banging in 40 goals in his 79 appearances for PSV, where he also chipped in with 23 assists.

And it was Serie A outfit Napoli who won the race for his signature back in the summer of 2019.

But the attacker really hasn’t hit the heights expected of him in the south of Italy, with the 27-year-old scoring just 30 goals from his 155 matches for the club so far.

The winger found himself in and out of the starting XI this season as Napoli clinched a memorable league title, with Lozano scoring just three goals from his 38 Serie A games.

It was a similar campaign for West Ham striker Scamacca in East London, with the Italian international enduring a really underwhelming debut season for the Hammers.

The future of both players is seemingly up in the air amid the beginning of the summer transfer window.
