West Ham United have allegedly offered terms to Belgian attacker and soon-to-be free agent Adnan Januzaj.
That’s according to a report from Diario de Sevilla who claim that Hammers boss David Moyes is a very big fan of the 15-capped Belgium international.
Moyes has plenty of work to do in the transfer market this summer.
West Ham’s need for a new striker, a centre-back, a left-back and a couple of central midfielders has been well-documented already.
It seems as though our deficiencies in the right wing department are being overlooked though.
Andriy Yarmolenko has been released and we desperately need to add some more competition and cover for Jarrod Bowen before the start of next season.
It seems as though Moyes has his eye on someone he knows very well indeed…
West Ham make Januzaj offer
Januzaj’s deal with Sociedad is set to expire at the end of this month.
And the Hammers have already made a proposal to the 27-year-old winger according to a report from Diario de Sevilla.
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 Januzaj on a free seems like somewhat of a no-brainer for West Ham.
Moyes has always had his favourites in the game and the Belgian ace is certainly one of those.
