Patson Daka is a striker that looks like someone who is set for one of Europe’s major leagues at some stage, so if West Ham are looking for a future star who can fire them up the league then this could be the one.
He is quick and hard-working which should provide genuine competition in the same system as Antonio, and is probably technically better than the former Nottingham Forest man already. If there’s one aspect that he doesn’t compare well on it is aerially. Rated with an 8 on heading on FM2021, he certainly doesn’t match Antonio’s ability in the air.
However managing to convert 29.27% of his shots last season with a comparable pass accuracy to Antonio, alongside a solid number of tackles and take-ons, he could really fit the quick and aggressive style that Moyes wants to play the entire time.
