According to a report from The Evening Standard, West Ham United boss David Moyes thinks Arsenal ace Eddie Nketiah would fit his side perfectly.

The high-flying Hammers have surprised everyone this season. They are currently fourth in the Premier League table, and if things go their way from now until the end of the campaign, they will qualify for the Champions League next term.

That really is mind-blowing. This time last year, the Irons were battling for survival. Many felt that they would go down, but the way they stayed in the division and have come as far as they have really is impressive.

Whatever happens to West Ham in terms of their league finish, they will need a new striker this summer. They are yet to replace Sebastien Haller, who left them for Ajax in January, and it is almost certain that they will bring someone in soon.

West Ham wanted Nketiah in January

The Hammers tried signing Nketiah from Arsenal in January. Mikel Arteta blocked all moves for the Englishman, but that could change this summer, even though the Gunners boss believes that his striker is ‘extraordinary’. (

The Gunners are on the verge of tying down Folarin Balogun to a new deal. The teenager’s only demand was game time with the senior squad, and the fact that he has agreed to to sign a new contract means that Arsenal have promised him a big role.

That is bad news for Nketiah. He is already behind plenty of players in the pecking order and with Balogun now set to be in the mix as well, it is very likely that he will be forced to move on in the upcoming summer window.

The report claims that Moyes is a big fan of Nketiah. The Hammers boss believes that the young Englishman would fit his energetic system perfectly, and that could be why West Ham decide to make a move for him this summer.

In an ideal world, Arsenal wouldn’t want to sell one of their young talents to a club who are higher than us in the Premier League table. However, if an acceptable offer comes in from West Ham, we will probably let Eddie leave.
