West Ham linked with move for Chris Wood

  West Ham linked with move for Chris Wood West Ham are reportedly interested in signing Leeds United striker Chris Wood. According to a report from the Mirror, the Hammers are one of three Premier League teams keen on adding the New Zealand international to their squad ahead of the coming season, and they may look to make a summer move for him. Wood has been in superb form for Leeds this season under Garry Monk and is attracting a lot of interest, having enjoyed a highly impressive campaign in the Championship. The powerful centre forward has just two years remaining on his current deal at Elland Road and he’ll surely be looking to challenge himself in the top flight in the near future given his success with Leeds this season. Southampton and Stoke are also claimed to have shown an interest in Wood, who is reportedly valued at a fairly sizable £15 million. Wood notched a quite staggering 30 goals for Leeds this season in all competitions.

Swansea City have been linked with a summer move for Leeds United striker Chris Wood, according to the Mirror.

Wood netted 30 goals in all competitions at Elland Road in 2016/17 and subsequently will be a highly sought after man in the summer transfer window.

The 25-year-old has been under the guidance of former Swansea captain and manager Garry Monk at Leeds, as they missed out on a play-off spot very late in the campaign.

Leeds snapped Wood up in 2015 and he’s been a hit for the Yorkshire club, bagging 40 goals in 80 games – an average of a goal every two games.

After a fine season with Leeds, a host of Premier League clubs are battling for the striker – although he’ll reportedly cost around £15-£20 million.
