West Ham Signs Maxwel Cornet for £17.5M Fee

West Ham United has completed the signing of Burnley forward Maxwel Cornet for a fee of £17.5 million, per Fabrizio Romano.

Cornet is a strong signing as he was easily the leading scorer on a conservative Burnley side last season. At 25 years old with nine seasons of top-flight experience in Europe, he will immediately impact a talented West Ham side that will take on Manchester City to open their season. Cornet likely won’t be ready in time for the game, but it’s possible we could see him as soon as their match with Nottingham Forest in Gameweek 2.

In 2021, Cornet played 1,766 minutes in 26 appearances with Burnley and scored nine goals along with an assist. Keep an eye on if he can crack the lineup next weekend for the Hammers.
