West Ham United appear to have had a hugely lucky escape by not signing Luka Jovic in the summer transfer window.
Hammers boss David Moyes allegedly wanted to bring Jovic to the London Stadium in the summer transfer window according to Mundo Deportivo.
Moyes ended up signing Gianluca Scamacca instead and despite his early struggles, we’re sure that the Italian will eventually come good in the Claret and Blue.

West Ham had a lucky escape with Luka Jovic

It seems as though West Ham have had a really lucky escape by not signing Luka Jovic.
In spite of calls from the Hammers fans in the summer for Moyes to sign any striker that became available, the Scot kept his powder dry for someone he really wanted.
And in this case, that approach has worked out very well indeed for West Ham.
