Having previously enjoyed the services of Nigerian strikers like Obinna Nsofor and Emmanuel Emenike, there are speculations that another Nigerian striker may be donning the colours of Premier League club West Ham soon.

According to Sky Sports, the Hammers are mulling over a possible move for Bordeaux striker Josh Maja.

Maja was a former pupil under David Moyes who is now in charge at the London club and masterminded their stay in the Premier League even before the last day of action.

Former Sunderland manager Moyes handed Maja his professional debut in a League Cup tie against Queens Park Rangers in September 2016, introducing him off the bench to replace compatriot Joel Asoro.

Apart from West Ham, speculations are also rife that Scottish Premiership giants Glasgow Rangers are also eyeing a move Maja as a replacement for Alfredo Morelos who has been heavily linked with a switch to Lille in France.
