West Ham interested in signing Adnan Januzaj

West Ham United are reportedly interested in Belgium international and soon-to-be free agent Adnan Januzaj.

What’s the word?

That is according to reports in Spain, stating that Moyes’ side are big admirers.

As per the report, Januzaj “said his goodbyes” to Real Sociedad at the end of the season and “wants to start a new stage away from Donosti.”

As such, the 27-year-old will be a free agent at the end of the month, which would allow Moyes to initiate a reunion with the winger via the Bosman ruling.

The Hammers do face competition for his signature though, with the likes of Real Betis, Napoli and Barcelona all mentioned as interested teams in the report.

Moyes surely delighted

A reunion could truly be on the cards for Januzaj, who showed glimpses of his best football under the Scot when they were both at Manchester United.

Should West Ham sign Januzaj?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Moyes is ironically the manager who gave the Belgian his debut back in the 2013/2014 season as he went on to make 75 Premier League appearances, being dubbed “unbelievable” in the process by David Cotterill.

Since leaving the Red Devils, he has established himself as a steady winger in Sociedad and will walk away having contributed 43 attacking returns in 168 appearances for the club.

Bagging the signing of Januzaj, who has been described as “confident and tricky” by Max Beesley, on a free would represent a big boost, as well as great value for Moyes, who is set to lose Yarmolenko at the end of this month.

With his ability to occupy the centre-forward position, the 27-year-old would offer Moyes a central option to either accompany or fill in for the ageing Antonio.

How many points did West Ham end the Premier League season with?

Though, like Bowen, he operates as an inverted winger, cutting in from the right into his left foot and serves as a direct option operating as an inside forward, achieving an average of 4.05 shot-creating actions per 90.

His total of 3.97 switches per 90 demonstrates his ability to sustain possession, with end product not the main part of his game.

His technical ability as a passing maestro makes his a slightly unorthodox option in attack, but one that can help his side to keep possession throughout the attacking third.
