David Moyes has made his feelings known on West Ham transfers. With that, the Hammers should look no further than the Championship and QPR for an attacker.
The Gaffer is seemingly trying to take advantage of this go-around at West Ham by putting out a pretty solid idea on for incoming transfers to the Hammers. His idea, under 25 years of age and with pace and passion. Insert Eberechi Eze from QPR… and all of those boxes are checked.
The Queens Park 21-year-old is having a super season for the Rangers and will surely have some suitors looking at him from around the EPL this summer as he’s put in 12 goals and 8 assists in 37 matches. He’s not big only coming in at 1,73m but he’s fast and has linked up well this season.
The reason Eze is highlighted here is that West Ham requires an attacking midfielder. The current formation for the club is a 4-4-2 leaving the 2 midfielders to cover box and box and rarely get a lot of time in the attacking end. The fresh influence of Eze could change that for the good as at least a few players will be leaving the club this summer.
Size-wise he somewhat resembles Manuel Lanzini but his drive and will to push on reminds us of the old Manu, not the current one. With Jack Wilshere needed to be gone and Anderson/Fornals playing more on the wing, Eze would be a good fill in to maybe mix up the formation but also add pace and an attacking presence.
Eze has been a career QPR player and with the Rangers probably not getting promoted, it will surely give him a lot to think about over the next few months. He is still very young when it comes to major playtime but he could fit well and be a great link up for the Hammer attackers.
Currently, he is performing beyond and above what was considered of him this season and he has been linking up with a current Hammer on loan, Jordan Hugill. Imagine getting him around Sebastien Haller and the likes of the before mentioned Anderson/Fornals or Bowen/Antonio… with his setup abilities, the Hammers attackers would be watering at the mouth.
Getting this deal nailed down over the summer would be an outstanding move for Moyes and the West Ham board. It’s not only crucial do to his skills but also that fact that many other clubs will be chomping at the bit to get him over the Hammers. A change needs to happen for the club and it seems that Moyes is on the right foot to make it happen. Now, it just needs to start happening.
