Video: Arthur Cabral goal highlights huge West Ham mistake

Arthur Cabral scored an absolute wonder goal for Fiorentina yesterday and it really seems like West Ham made a big error by not signing him.

Hammers boss David Moyes was allegedly keen to bring Cabral to the London Stadium in the January transfer window according to Goal Brazil.

In the end, West Ham decided against signing Cabral from Basel, however. The Brazilian ended up moving to Fiorentina instead for around £14 million (Football Italia).

The striker has made a decent start to life in Florence with three goals and one assist to his name in eight games so far (Transfermarkt). And he scored a wonder goal yesterday that will make the West Ham fans wish that Moyes had brought him to East London.

Cabral put in a top-class performance for his side and scored an absolute wonder goal.

The Brazilian displayed strength, pace and sensational finishing ability at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona yesterday:

With Michail Antonio really struggling at the moment, it’s only natural to wonder what might have been had we signed Cabral in January.

The 23-year-old’s goal yesterday proved that he has all of the attributes needed to succeed in the Premier League.

We truly believe that the Brazilian would have been a huge hit at West Ham.

And missing out on signing him a few months ago could end up being a really big mistake from Hammers boss David Moyes.

Who knows, perhaps we did try to sign him. But if the truth be known, had West Ham really gone all out for Cabral, then he would undoubtedly be playing in the Claret and Blue now.
