West Ham boss David Moyes is a keen admirer of Aleksandar Mitrovic according to a report from The Sun. Fulham are not prepared to sell the 26-year-old, however.

The Cottagers have already rejected a £16 million bid for the Serbia international (The Sun).

Signing a top class centre-forward will be pivotal for Moyes if West Ham are to achieve a successful 2021/22 campaign.

The Hammers have already been linked with a plethora of strikers.

Quite who will rock up at the London Stadium, however, remains to be seen.

West Ham boss David Moyes wants Aleksandar Mitrovic

According to The Sun, the Hammers boss is a big fan of the 26-year-old striker.

 

It may well be tricky for the East London outfit to prise Mitro away from Craven Cottage, however, with Fulham reluctant to sell the centre-forward.

Was have to be honest, missing out on the Serbian wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.

Mitrovic doesn’t have any kind of pace or mobility whatsoever. It could be argued that those two attributes are actually the most important assets for a modern day striker to have.

Plenty more fish in the sea

The Fulham striker just wouldn’t suit the West Ham system at all.

If Moyes truly wants to sign the 26-year-old then we will back him of course. We just can’t see what he would add to the Hammers team.
