West Ham boss David Moyes is 'fixated' with the idea of signing ex-Premier League winger

West Ham manager David Moyes is fixated with the idea of signing Adnan Januzaj on a free transfer this summer.

That’s according to a report from Mundo Deportivo who claim that Moyes is eyeing a reunion with the talented 27-year-old winger.

The Hammers have been linked with numerous wingers already, one of them being Adnan Januzaj.

And now it seems as though Moyes is ready to go all out for the ex-Manchester United ace…

West Ham boss Moyes fixated on signing winger

Mundo Deportivo reckon that the Hammers manager is intent on bringing Adnan Januzaj to the London Stadium this summer.

And on a free transfer, we believe that he’d be a very useful option for the East London outfit.

Januzaj has been described as a brilliant player by Manchester United legend Paul Scholes (talkSPORT).

And on his day, he is extremely exciting to watch. The problem is that he is not very consistent. And his stats this season make for pretty grim reading, with just five goals and three assists to his name in 44 games (Transfermarkt).

The 27-year-old has never hit the heights that were expected of him when he burst onto the scene as a teenager a decade ago when David Moyes of all people gave him his debut for Manchester United.

Moyes also brought him to Sunderland on loan during his spell in charge at the Stadium of Light.

Januzaj is still a very decent player when he’s at his best. He can play anywhere along the front-line and possesses exceptional technical ability.

The Belgian’s availability on a free transfer and his apparent wage demands of around £76k-a-week (Salary Sport) makes him the ideal replacement for Yarmolenko – and a much more cost effective one at that.

Signing Belgian winger Januzaj on a free seems like somewhat of a no-brainer for West Ham.

In fact, this is probably one of the most predictable deals of the summer transfer window.
