Report claims club desperate to sell Josh Maja, David Moyes could bring him to West Ham

According to an exclusive report from French media outlet Le 10 Sport, Bordeaux will attempt to raise €50 million (£44 million) this summer by selling numerous players. And alleged West Ham target Josh Maja is apparently one of the players who could be moved on.

According to a report from the Sun, the Hammers are interested in signing the 21-year-old hitman.

Maja signed professional terms with Sunderland in the summer of 2016 – the same time that David Moyes took charge at the Stadium of Light.

The Lewisham-born ace was moved on to Ligue 1 side Bordeaux in January 2019.

It now seems as though the former Sunderland man could be heading back to England, however.

The Sun suggests that West Ham want to sign Maja for around £10 million.

And Le 10 Sport claims that Bordeaux are desperate to sell the 21-year-old. So it should be a fairly straightforward transfer.


Maja has been in decent form for Bordeaux over the past 15 months.

The 21-year-old has racked up nine goals and three assists in 31 games for the French club (Transfermarkt).

In 21 Ligue 1 appearances for Bordeaux this season, the former Sunderland man has started just six times, however.

In those outings, Maja has averaged 0.9 shots, 0.5 key passes and 0.5 dribbles per game. He has also racked up six goals and two assists in those games (Who Scored).

He possesses blistering pace, according to Total Football Analysis.

And that is just what West Ham need in the final third.

For £10 million Maja could be a real steal. But it remains to be seen whether Moyes is prepared to take a punt on his former striker.
