After shining for Aston Villa with eight goals in the 2023/24 season, Jhon Duran is the subject of interest from top teams across the Premier League. One of the biggest admirers of the Colombian forward is West Ham United F.C.

The Hammers see the six-foot-tall forward as the ideal Number 9 for the present and the future. With Lucas Paqueta, Mohammed Kudus, and Jarrod Bowen, Jhon Duran's signing would complete a formidable attack for the Claret and Blue.

Lack of goals: A concern for the Hammers

Last season, West Ham lacked a lot of goals from their starting strikers. So, this seems to be positive news for the Hammers, who have already agreed terms with the Colombian forward.
Now it's up to West Ham and Aston Villa to negotiate this deal, and if everything goes to plan Duran's addition can be a vital signing for the club to improve the team's goalscoring output.

Last season, West Ham couldn't keep up the momentum going towards the end of the season as they finished ninth in the Premier League. With no European football this season, the Hammers should aim to achieve a top-six spot or better compete for a Champions League place.
