Sunderland: West Ham United rival Rangers for Josh Maja - Sunderland News

Premier League side West Ham United are showing interest in former Sunderland striker Josh Maja, according to Daily Mail.

After spending time through his childhood with the likes of Fulham, Crystal Palace and Manchester City, centre-forward Maja would make an impression at the Stadium of Light which would lead to his first team debut in September 2016.

After a good first full season with the Black Cats, the young Nigerian left in January 2019 for a move to French top-tier side Bordeaux but his time in Ligue 1 now seems to be coming to an end.

Six goals and two assists during the 2019/2020 season has seen his reputation remain intact and Scottish Premiership side Rangers have also been credited with interest in the last couple of days.

Now reported to have joined Steven Gerrard’s side with interest in Maja are Premier League club West Ham, who remained in England’s top flight after season of battling against relegation.

How many goals did Sunderland score during the 19/20 league season?

The Hammers are expected to be an enticing proposition for the striker due to David Moyes being the London stadium club’s boss, the man who handed Maja his debut at the Stadium of Light.

The report goes on to add that along with Maja and QPR’s Eberechi Eze, Moyes is also interested in Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White.

Where would Maja be best suited? Of course the lure of the Premier League is one thing but the youngster could enjoy a fruitful spell with Rangers and the challenge of going for a Scottish Premiership title next term could be exciting.

He would also potentially be more likely to get minutes at Ibrox, especially if Alfredo Morelos is sold as is expected.

For Sunderland fans, they must look on and wonder what might have been had they managed to hold on to the striker.
