If you’d asked David Moyes on the 1st of the month what his priority position was to be addressed in the January transfer window, he’d probably have asked for a new striker.

Time is running out for West Ham to dip into the transfer market and sign a striker, but exWHUemployee believes that they have plans to do so, with Bordeaux’s Josh Maja being mentioned as a potential target.
Maja’s youth career saw him spend time at Crystal Palace, Fulham, Manchester City and Sunderland – where he eventually made his professional debut, before moving to France in the winter of 2019.
He’s netted just the two goals in 14 Ligue 1 appearances this term, but has clearly done enough during his short stint across the channel to earn admirers at the London stadium.
