What could West Ham target Sebastien Haller bring to Dream Team?

  • Fantasy Football: Sebastian Haller could be a real asset to West Ham this Premier League season

Fantasy football fans will be monitoring this situation closely.

Because it seems like another exciting attacking prospect is appearing on the horizon of the promised Premier League land?

West Ham are reportedly on the brink of clinching a club-record deal to sign striker Sebastien Haller from Eintracht Frankfurt.

West Ham bound?

So who is the guy? And is he really worth £45m?

Well, in this current market, the statistics certainly suggest so.

In total Haller posted 20 goals and 12 assists in all competitions last season, improving on his 13 and seven respectively the year before.

He’s a big boy – at 1.90m and labelled the ‘bulldozer’ before – but his touch and awareness defy his size.

With Marko Arnautovic and Andy Carroll departing the club this summer West Ham desperately need attacking recruits, so Haller looks like the perfect fit.

Like Carroll he’s a menace in the air, winning more aerial duels than anyone else in the Bundesliga last season (according to WhoScored).

What could Sebastien Haller bring to fantasy football?

Haller was part of a formidable front three at Frankfurt alongside Ante Rebic and new Real Madrid boy Luka Jovic.

Between them they scored 41 Bundesliga goals last season, with Haller grabbing 15 of those from just 23 starts.

According to WhoScored, he was also Frankfurt’s highest rated player in the Bundesliga last season at 7.55.

That’s some stat considering all the fuss made about Jovic.

With Felipe Anderson, Manuel Lanzini and new signing Pablo Fornals feeding him he should get plenty of service, while his assists record suggests he’s an equally useful provider himself.

Likely to be the Hammers’ main starting striker, we envisage him being priced at around £3m on Dream Team this season.

That’s the same as potential new-team mate Anderson, as well as the likes of Richarlison and Gerard Deulofeu.
