West Ham United have made an excellent start to this summer’s transfer window, signing no fewer than three players who will all add quality to the first team.
David Moyes appears to be working tirelessly to rebuild his squad ahead of another crucial season in which he will look to guide the club to another deep European run and a top-eight finish in the Premier League.
It looks likely that there will be more arrivals at the London Stadium in the next few weeks, with Moyes looking at adding a striker to bolster his attacking options.
Chelsea frontman Armando Broja appears to be his first choice, although an alternative deal for a forward who plays in Serie A might become viable depending on a potential move for the Albania international.
Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness) claims that West Ham are keen on making a move for Justin Kluivert, and a fee of €15m (£13m) may be enough to secure his signature ahead of next season.
The Dutchman earned a move to Roma following a breakthrough season at Ajax in 2017/18 where he scored 11 goals in all competitions, however it’s fair to say he hasn’t lived up to his potential in Italy.
The left-winger has only scored nine times for Roma during his spell at the club, although he has impressed in a loan spell at Nice last season, netting six times and providing six assists as he looked to get his Ajax form back.
With Nick Mercadante saying that “his talent is nearly limitless”, Moyes might have an opportunity to sign someone who could offer something slightly different to the West Ham attack.
Imagine Jarrod Bowen on the right and Kluivert on the left, all the club needs now is a striker who can score 20 plus goals a season and they might have a great chance of doing better than last season.
For £13m, it’s a risk worth taking on the Dutchman as he looks to build on his early promise.
