Exclusive: Pundit believes Moyes will be interested in Chris Wood
West Ham United manager David Moyes will know that he must have squad depth to be able to compete in four different competitions next season, and Chris Wood would surely be interested in a move to the London Stadium, according to Dean Windass.
Wood, who has 47 Premier League goals to his name. may appear to be a less than glamorous signing for a club based in London that has just qualified for the Europa League, but he is just one of eight Premier League players to have scored at least 10 goals in each of the past four seasons.
Who is better?
That feat has put him up there with some of the most consistent strikers such as Jamie Vardy, Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane, which leaves little question about if he is worth the reported £25 million West Ham will have to pay for him.
It would be a transfer that would work out for both parties as Wood is taking a huge step up in his career and Moyes is getting a very good striker to play behind Michail Antonio or even instead of the 29-year old in certain games, according to Windass, who spoke exclusively to Transfer Tavern:
“I think that would interest Chris Wood and it would certainly interest David Moyes to replace Antonio. That’s the main thing, is he going to play week in, week out at West Ham?”
Wood was signed from Leeds United back in 2017 when he lit up the Championship finishing as the league’s top scorer with 27 goals, but he was unable to fire them back into the top flight.
Burnley continue to impress, not so much with their ability to wow fans and viewers, but through the way they always get out of trouble and know when to turn up their tempo and start winning big games.
