West Ham striker Albian Ajeti spoke exclusively to the official match-day programme ahead of tonight’s clash with Arsenal, and shared what he noticed about the quality of the squad as soon as he arrived in east London, as quoted by WHUFC.com.

The Switzerland international joined the Hammers from Basel in the summer for £8 million.

He has really struggled to establish himself at the London Stadium, however.

Ajeti has failed to score in seven appearances for West Ham thus far. Most of his appearances have been cameos from the bench, however.

And he just hasn’t been given a proper chance by Manuel Pellegrini.

The Swiss hitman seems to be in good spirits despite his lack of chances to impress, however.


The 22-year-old told the official match-day programme how strong the Hammers squad is, as quoted by WHUFC.com:

“I think we have a very good team here at West Ham, with very good qualities. I felt well as soon as I arrived, with the players and in the training sessions.”

Ajeti is likely to be on the bench once again tonight when West Ham play host to Arsenal.

It is hard for him to prove himself when he is being given just 10 minutes action here and there.

Pellegrini really should start him alongside Sebastien Haller for at least one game, just to see what they both could offer.

With the Chilean’s stubbornness, however, that is extremely unlikely to happen.
