According to a report from the Times, Norwich have made a £3 million bid for West Ham striker Jordan Hugill.

Hammers boss David Moyes needs to sell before he can buy this summer. So the idea of moving Hugill on seems to make sense.

The Times reckon Norwich have submitted a £3 million bid for the 28-year-old – but that offer falls well short of West Ham’s valuation of the striker.

ExWHUemployee has claimed that the Hammers would prefer to include Hugill in a deal to sign QPR ace Eberechi Eze, however, rather than sell him to the Canaries.

Stats

The 28-year-old joined West Ham from Preston in January 2018 for around £8m (Evening Standard).

 

He failed to establish himself at the London Stadium, however. In truth, he wasn’t really given a fair enough chance to prove himself. Hugill played just three games for West Ham, and he failed to score a single goal for the club.

The former Preston man enjoyed a decent loan spell with QPR last season, however, with 13 goals in 39 games to his name for the west London outfit (Who Scored).

He clearly doesn’t have a future at West Ham. All that remains to be seen is how much the Hammers actually get for the 28-year-old this summer.

Hugill clearly has a lot to offer at Championship level, but unfortunately for him, he’s just not cut out for the Premier League.
