West Ham United have reportedly offered to sign Gonzalo Higuain on loan

Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain endured a hard season last term, that's for sure.

The Hammers would prefer to sign two new strikers, given Javier Hernandez is now their only senior forward.

Despite making an approach for Maxi Gomez at Celta Vigo, West Ham failed to snare him away from under the noses of Valencia, who have won the race for the striker.

"I think it would be a flawless fit".

Gonzalo Higuaín who now plays for Italian giants Juventus has emerged as a target for Premier League side West Ham United who want him to lead their attack next season.

Costa is now with Spanish side Atletico Madrid and is serving an 8-match ban for verbally abusing a referee.

Costa, 30, is on the way out of Atletico this summer, following the breakdown of his relationship with the club he rejoined from Chelsea in 2017.

According to Sky Sports Italia, West Ham United have made contact with Juventus over the possibility of them to sign Gonzalo Higuain.

Diego Costa is a controversial figure and is often the pantomime villain hated by opposition fans but loved by his own fans.

Costa has 52 Premier League goals to his name (Transfermarkt) and used to bully English defences with his physical, no-nonsense style.

West Ham would be a great place for Costa to move to, as the vocal fanbase would welcome him with open arms while he is sure to score plenty of goals.

A number of Premier League teams have looked at the player over the last few months, though have shared similar concerns over the player's ability without Jovic. Their bid has been accepted and they will now discuss personal terms with the player, who was initially reluctant to join in hope he could move to a Champions League club.
