Report: Napoli ace has been offered to West Ham boss David Moyes

According to a report from Calcio Mercato, West Ham boss David Moyes has been offered the chance to sign Napoli winger Adam Ounas.

Hammers boss David Moyes badly needs to strengthen his ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

But let’s be honest here. A new winger should be nowhere near the top of his wish-list. That’s even if we do sell Grady Diangana to West Brom.

Calcio Mercato claims that Napoli ace Adam Ounas has been offered to West Ham boss David Moyes for around £16 million.


The 23-year-old Algerian winger spent last season on loan in Ligue 1 with Nice.

And Ounas impressed in France, racking up four goals and four assists in 19 appearances in all competitions (Transfermarkt).

In 16 league outings for Nice, he averaged 1.3 shots, 1.6 key passes and 2.8 dribbles per game. The nine-capped Algeria international also made 26.4 passes on average with an impressive completion rate of 82% (Who Scored).

Ounas is clearly a decent player. And £16 million would represent decent value for his services.

But considering West Ham’s current financial state, we really shouldn’t be going anywhere near the 23-year-old.

What would be the point in selling Diangana only to replace him with a similar player who is totally unproven in England?

Moyes must use his money wisely this summer. And if we can only bring one player in, it absolutely must be a new left-back.
