Opinion: West Ham United should sign Carlos Vinicius after Tottenham reportedly reject permanent deal option

West Ham United should consider a move to sign Carlos Vinicius after Tottenham Hotspur allegedly rejected the chance to sign him on a permanent deal in the summer (Sky Sports).

Hammers boss David Moyes will be desperate to sign a top class striker in the summer.

Michail Antonio is currently the only recognised senior centre-forward the Scot has at his disposal at the London Stadium.

And the Brazilian would be a good option for the Hammers.

Despite not playing that much for Tottenham this season, Vinicius has actually racked up some pretty decent numbers.

He has scored 10 goals in 22 outings for Spurs. Considering the fact that he has averaged just 44.5 minutes per game during those appearances, that is a fine return (Transfermarkt).

One red flag for the Hammers will be that he does struggle to play in the lone striker role as he isn’t the best at holding up the ball.

David Moyes has been known to coach that kind of attribute into his forward players, however. Just look at Michail Antonio and Marko Arnautovic.

If West Ham can pick the 26-year-old Benfica owned ace up for a decent fee, it should be a deal that Moyes pursues this summer.

tvi24 claims that the Brazilian could be available for as little as £22 million this summer. That is very good value indeed.

West Ham should make this one happen. If Tottenham don’t want Vinicius, Moyes may well be able to get the best out of him in East London.
