West Ham take Wimbledon’s Daniel Agyei on trial amid Chelsea interest

West Ham United have offered AFC Wimbledon striker Daniel Agyei a trial amid interest from Chelsea, according to the Daily Mail.

The Hammers are having a big summer after waving goodbye to Sam Allardyce and replacing him with Slaven Bilic, who almost won the Turkish Super Lig with Besiktas last season as well as knocking Liverpool out of the Europa League.

Bilic returns to Upton Park 18 years after leaving the club as a player.

He’s a well-known manager in England having played over here for West Ham during his playing days, plus he was Croatian manager when Steven McClaren’s England failed to qualify for the European Championships in 2008.

They’re now seeking ways to make improvements to their squad too and have offered Agyei the chance to shine, who is clearly impressing scouts if Premier League champions Chelsea have also taken a look at him.

Agyei scored 29 goals for AFC Wimbledon’s Under-21s’ side last season so clearly knows where the goal is and how stick the ball in it.

West Ham made two great attacking signings of Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia last season and they both made exceptional starts before fading away.

Sakho ended the season with 10 goals while Valencia finished with six fewer on four, so adding another goal-poacher to the mix can only be a good thing for the Hammers and for Bilic who will aim for a top ten finish next season.

West Ham United only won two of their final 16 games in the Premier League last season.
