According to a report from Football.London, West Ham are keen on Norwich City ace Emiliano Buendia.

The 23-year-old joined the Canaries in the summer of 2018 for around £1.4 million (talkSPORT).

The Argentine ace can play anywhere along the front-line. He is most comfortable when deployed out on the wing, but can also operate in the number 10 position.

His age and playing style makes him ideal for the Hammers.

West Ham do have plenty of attackers, but Michail Antonio will be 30 later this week. Andriy Yarmolenko faces an uncertain future in east London. Whilst Felipe Anderson has flattered to deceive over the past 12 months.

 

Stats

Buendia has been in excellent form for Norwich this season, racking up seven assists in 28 Premier League games thus far (Transfermarkt).

In those 28 outings, the 23-year-old has averaged 42.2 passes per game, with an incredibly impressive completion rate of 81.1%. He has also averaged 2.6 key passes per game during those appearances (Who Scored).

The South American is clearly not afraid to get stuck in either. In 28 Premier League outings, Buendia has averaged 2.3 tackles and 0.8 interceptions per game (Who Scored).

The Norwich ace is a great all round player. And would be a very useful addition for West Ham.

It is unclear how much the Hammers would have to offer to tempt Norwich into selling. But they should certainly test the East Anglian outfit’s resolve nonetheless.
