West Ham To Battle Rangers For Bordeaux’s Josh Maja


West Ham are ready to rival Rangers for Bordeaux’s clinical young striker Maja.

Maja made his breakthrough at Sunderland under Moyes, making his debut in September 2016, before leaving the Stadium of Light in January 2019 to join French side Bordeaux.

Rangers have Maja on their shortlist of strikers to replace their star front man Alfredo Morelos who is wanted by Lille but face stiff competition from West Ham.

Moyes is also weighing up a move for 21 year-old Maja as he aims to add firepower to his squad after keeping West Ham up in the Premiership

Maja was Bordeaux’s joint-top scorer, netting eight times in just eight starts, with a further 16 appearances coming as a substitute, before the French season came to a premature end in March.

Maja is not pushing for a move but the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic may force Bordeaux to sell in order to raise funds.

Moyes is hoping to bring in some young homegrown talent to improve his squad this summer Also looking to bring in QPR’s Eberechi Eze, West Ham are also interested in Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White.
