West Ham surprises by making transfer inquiry for Aston Villa striker also sought after by Chelsea

Introduction to this article:
The article discusses West Ham’s surprise transfer enquiry for Aston Villa striker Jhon Duran, as well as their interest in Bayer Leverkusen star Victor Boniface. Both players are being considered as potential additions to the West Ham squad, with Duran seeking more game time and Boniface representing a big-money signing opportunity for the club.

West Ham’s Enquiry for Jhon Duran

West Ham has expressed interest in signing 20-year-old Jhon Duran from Aston Villa. Duran, who joined Villa in 2023, has struggled for game time under Unai Emery, making only seven starts in 23 appearances this season and scoring four goals. While the Colombian forward is keen to explore other options to increase his game time, Villa may not be willing to do business unless a substantial offer is put on the table. Chelsea is also monitoring the situation, adding further competition for Duran’s signature.

West Ham’s Pursuit of Victor Boniface

In addition to their interest in Jhon Duran, it has been reported that West Ham is also pursuing a transfer for Bayer Leverkusen star Victor Boniface. The 23-year-old Nigerian, who recently joined the Bundesliga side and is already proving his ability at the top level, has also attracted attention from Chelsea and Newcastle. West Ham’s willingness to break their £42m transfer record in order to sign Boniface underscores their determination to secure a proven striker for the team. The potential addition of Boniface would provide valuable depth to the squad, especially in light of long-term doubts over Michail Antonio and Danny Ings, whose positions in the team are uncertain.
