West Ham must move for Adnan Januzaj

|

West Ham United face big competition for the signature of Adnan Januzaj who is still without a club after leaving Real Sociedad last month.

What’s the word?

That is according to a report from AS who claim that whilst the player’s future is very much uncertain, a new club has come to the fray for his services.

That club is ambitious MLS side LA Galaxy, who are “willing to throw the house out [of] the window” in order to incorporate him into the squad, alongside new acquisition Rique Puig from Barcelona.

As per the report, West Ham and Everton are described as teams who “have the most options” in acquiring the 27-year-old’s services.

West Ham must act for potential gamechanger

Since leaving the Red Devils he has established himself as a steady winger in Sociedad and left the club, having contributed 44 attacking returns in 168 appearances, with 23 of these being goals.

Moyes is ironically the manager who gave the Belgian his debut back in the 2013/2014 season as the Belgian went on to make 75 Premier League appearances for Manchester United and showed glimpses of huge potential under the Scot when he took over from Sir Alex Ferguson.

And a reunion could be on the cards for Moyes, who could surely persuade the Belgian, who “has heart”, according to Hugh Wizzy, to sign for the Hammers.

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

Though, his best position sees him function as an inverted winger, cutting in from the right onto his left foot and serves as a direct option operating as an inside forward, achieving an average of 4.10 shot-creating actions per 90.

His average of 4.06 switches per 90 demonstrates his ability to sustain possession, with end product not the main part of his game.

Under Moyes’ tenure once more, he could be a genuine gamechanger at the London Stadium.

West Ham would do well to sign Januzaj as an additional forward option in a move that is made even more enticing due to his free agent status.

Though, the Hammers will need to act fast amidst LA Galaxy’s interest.
