Newcastle United battle West Ham for 23-goal African striker

Newcastle United are set to enter the race for Union Saint-Gilloise attacker Mohamed Amoura, with West Ham United also interested.


According to L’Equipe, Newcastle United are ready to compete with West Ham United for Mohamed Amoura this summer. The Union Saint-Gilloise attacker has been prolific since moving to Belgium last summer, and many other European clubs are vying for his signature.

Newcastle United and West Ham United chasing Mohamed Amoura

Mohamed Amoura, who had a spectacular season with Union Saint-Gilloise, could be one of the biggest names to leave Belgian football this summer. This season, the striker has 23 goals and six assists in all competitions and has already begun to interest some prominent names ahead of the summer transfer window.

West Ham United have been interested for some time, as have other European clubs such as Lyon and Marseille. The former attempted to recruit him in January but were unsuccessful, but the latter remains a strong contender in the search for the Algerian striker, who has 23 goals this season.

However, those French clubs face the difficult task of defeating one of the Premier League sides in the race, with Newcastle United also involved. The Magpies are apparently seeking for a new striker to join their squad, not to replace Alexander Isak, but to succeed Callum Wilson.

West Ham are also looking for a long-term successor to Michail Antonio. But right now, they need a player to back up the Jamaican international. As a result, the two clubs may compete for the African striker, with Amoura likely to seek a move away from Belgium in quest of a more major challenge.

Union Saint-Gilloise want €20 million for Amoura

Amoura joined Union Saint-Gilloise from Swiss club FC Lugano for €3 million, but his success has increased his price to €20 million. That is what they want, and according to rumors, West Ham made a bid of around €15 million, which is far lower than the Belgian side’s valuation.

As a result, there is a possibility of obtaining a large fee for the Belgian side in addition to more than five times the profit generated by their investment. The required sum is certainly within the reach of teams such as West Ham and Newcastle United, while some French clubs may be hesitant to pay and may want to negotiate.
