West Ham: Moise Kean approach made

West Ham: Moise Kean approach made -West Ham News

West Ham United have approached Juventus forward Moise Kean, according to Italian outlet Calciomercato.

The lowdown

The Evening Standard have reported that David Moyes is determined to sign a striker this summer to provide cover and competition for Michail Antonio.

It was only last summer that Juventus agreed a deal to re-sign Kean from Everton after he went the other way for £29m in 2019. He was regarded as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who left for Manchester United.

Now rated at £21.6m by Transfermarkt, the Italian made 42 appearances for the Bianconeri in all competitions last season, but was limited to 12 Serie A starts.

The latest

The report from Calciomercato states that Kean is ‘looking for a way out’ of the Allianz Stadium this summer.

He has been contacted by two members of the Premier League‘s London contingent in West Ham and Fulham.

Hammers fans! Do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The verdict

West Ham clearly need another centre-forward option. Michail Antonio may have staved off injury trouble last season, but it’s hard to be confident about his availability on the basis of his familiar struggles.

The 32-year-old’s tally of 13 goals last term was solid but he also endured two Premier League scoring droughts lasting nine and 14 games respectively.

While he may have netted only six goals last season, it’s important to stress that his game-time was limited. He showed how good he could be during a loan spell at Paris Saint-Germain in 2020/21, when he was just three shy of the 20-goal mark.

Similar in profile to Jamie Vardy, Tammy Abraham and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, the 21-year-old would appear to be a gamble if West Ham were to sign him. He was considered a ‘flop‘ at Everton, but it seems that Moyes still believes he can cut it at the top level.
