West Ham targets Keane Lewis-Potter and Armando Broja were peacocking for David Moyes on the international stage last night.
Moyes faces a big rebuild at West Ham this summer with at least six or seven quality new signings needed.
Two areas West Ham need to address is attacking midfield and up front.
Sky Sports has reported that Broja is on Moyes’s list of striker targets for the summer window with a forward being a top priority for West Ham.
And Jamie Redknapp claimed live on Sky Sports last month that he has heard the Chelsea academy product – who he has known since he was 14 – is wanted by West Ham in a permanent move this summer.
Moyes has been searching for the right striker to bring to West Ham ever since selling Sebastien Haller to Ajax 18 months ago.
West Ham have also been heavily linked with a move for Hull’s enigmatic attacker Lewis-Potter in recent months (Hull Daily Mail).
It is hardly surprising given the success of the last promising attacker West Ham signed from the Tigers – Jarrod Bowen.
West Ham’s interest in Lewis-Potter is very real. So real in fact that Hull’s eccentric owner, Acun Ilicali, held an impromptu press conference to address the West Ham transfer rumour over his star player.
West Ham targets Keane Lewis-Potter and Armando Broja peacock for David Moyes on international stage
And last night saw West Ham targets Lewis-Potter and Broja peacock for Moyes on the international stage.
Lewis-Potter scored just two minutes into his full England U21s debut as he helped them to a 5-0 European Championship qualifying win over Kosovo.
The attacker showed great reactions to glance home an instinctive header at the far post.
Fellow West Ham target Broja was also on the scoresheet for Albania in a 2-1 Nations League defeat to Israel.
Despite being just 20-years-old, Broja has taken to being an international striker like a duck to water.
He added to his burgeoning reputation with his fourth goal in 13 appearances for Albania and an excellent all round performance.
Broja fired home a penalty on the stroke of half-time to give Albania a 1-0 lead. But the Slough-born West Ham target could not prevent his country from losing 2-1.
Moyes will undoubtedly have had both players watched closely and he will not be disappointed with the reports he gets back.
Now it is up to the West Ham board to back the manager in getting deals done like rivals such as Aston Villa do so quickly and efficiently.
