Bayer Leverkusen star Victor Boniface is the priority forward target for West Ham United, according to journalist Alan Nixon.


The Hammers are closing in on their first signing of the month in the form of Kalvin Phillips from Manchester City.


Now West Ham have shifted their focus to strengthening the forward department and a centre forward is on the agenda.




The London outfit have been linked with several players, including Leverkusen’s Boniface.


Boniface is in great form this season and has scored 16 goals in 23 appearances in all competitions for the German outfit.



It has been claimed that West Ham are considering the 23-year-old as their priority centre-forward target.


Boniface has a contract with Leverkusen that is set to expire in June 2028, and West Ham have to dig deep in their pockets to land the in-form striker.



The 23-year-old is currently out of action due to an abductor injury he received in a game against Bochum in December.
