The 90min revealed that West Ham wants to finalize the deal for Burnley’s key star by Friday midday.
During the last season campaign, the 25-year-old Maxwel Cornet has attracted a lot of interest from various English clubs. David Moyes has been looking for quality winger this summer. At some time, there were links with ex-ManUnd man Jesse Lingard, who enjoyed his short loan spell with the Hammers and managed to revive his top form. However, Lingard decided to join Nottingham Forest.
Despite signing Gianluca Scamacca, the West Ham’s manager wants more options in the attacking three and Cornet can easily expand the dimension of the club’s front line.
In the last season, Maxwel Cornet netted nine goals in 26 games for Burnley. It is a solid number for a player whose club has been struggling the entire season in relegation zone.
