The Baggies boss will undoubtedly be looking to add more firepower to his ranks at the Hawthorns this summer.

And Hammers manager David Moyes is allegedly willing to let Ajeti leave the London Stadium (ExWHUemployee).

The 23-year-old joined West Ham from FC Basel in the summer of 2019 for around £8 million (BBC).

In fact, West Brom wanted the Switzerland international last summer as well (Express & Star).

Ajeti has really struggled at West Ham. In 11 appearances for the Hammers, the Swiss striker has failed to rack up either a goal or an assist (Transfermarkt).

 

Time for Ajeti to be sold

Moving him on will 100% be the right call from David Moyes this summer.

And ExWHUemployee claimed that West Brom could be keen to sign the former Basel hitman, when speaking on the West Ham Way podcast (Thursday July 23rd):

“Ajeti, Celtic are interested in him and I think West Brom are looking at him.”

Considering Ajeti’s struggles with West Ham in the Premier League this season, West Brom signing him would be a strange move.

But who knows? Perhaps if Slaven Bilic puts an arm around him, and he is given regular first-team action, the Swiss striker might just surprise a few people at West Brom.
