David Moyes has added some quality to his West Ham United side over the course of the summer transfer window. Arrivals include Gianluca Scamacca, Flynn Downes, Nayef Aguerd, and Maxwel Cornet as the club aims to replicate the heights of a wonderful European run and solid Premier League finish.
There could well be more too, with Moyes on the hunt for some defensive reinforcements due to injury, names such as Thilo Kehrer and Eric Bailly have been linked with the club. However, there might be room for another attacking option too.
The club have been routinely linked with a move for Chelsea striker Armando Broja, however, there may be a better option on the market who could have much more of an impact.
Having been described as “one to watch” following his impressive early season displays, Moyes should forget Broja and move for Ramos.
When comparing the two players’ returns last season using Squawka’s comparison matrix, Ramos hit the target with an average of 1.4 shots per match compared to Broja’s one and trumped the Chelsea man in touches (45.3 to 35.3 per 90), aerial duel success (40% to 34.51% per 90) and goals scored (seven to six), proving that he could be a better option to improve the West Ham first team.
The young Portuguese player was even compared to Bayern Munich and Germany star Thomas Muller, with his knack for goals and his space-invading talents, Ramos’ talents could ensure that he makes it to the very top.
The 21-year-old spoke about this comparison with Muller, saying: “I think I have some similarities with him and he is also an example for me. Looking at what I do and what he does, I love the comparison. He is a position I feel comfortable in the game. I have always played there since he started.”
Muller has been one of the game’s finest forwards since he broke through at Bayern Munich in 2009/2010 – scoring 227 goals and providing 245 assists over his 626 appearances for the club – and if Ramos can have a career half as good as the German, then Moyes could have a star in the making.
