Barcelona ace Junior Firpo has been offered to West Ham United according to a report from Calcio Napoli 24. And some Hammers fans have reacted on Twitter to the speculation.

David Moyes is clearly on the hunt for a new striker.

West Ham badly need a new left-back / left wing-back as well, however. Arthur Masuaku won’t be involved in first-team action for at least another six weeks.

The addition of someone who can cover for the 27-year-old and compete with him when he returns from injury would be a very wise move from the Hammers this month.

Calcio Napoli 24 claims that Barcelona ace Junior Firpo could be the man for the job.

In fact, the 24-year–old Spaniard has been offered to the Hammers. He has been offered to Napoli as well but the Barca ace allegedly would prefer a move to England (Calcio Napoli 24).

 

West Ham to swoop in for Junior Firpo?

The Barcelona star would be a truly excellent addition for West Ham.

The 24-year-old who Barca signed from Real Betis for £16.2 million in the summer of 2019 (The Sun), can play both the left-back and left wing-back positions.

He has been described as an outstanding player who excels in 1v1’s, both from an attacking and a defensive perspective (Total Football Analysis).

The Spaniard is exactly the kind of player Moyes should be looking to sign.

Some West Ham fans reacted jubilantly on Twitter to the links with Junior Firpo…
