West Ham will not be able to sign a more perfectly suited striker for our playing style than Taiwo Awoniyi this summer.
Certainly as far as value for money goes that is.
In other news…Report: West Ham must pay £16.7m to bring powerhouse striker back to the Premier League
David Moyes absolutely must get the striker signing 100% spot on this summer.
Michail Antonio has done so well for us over the past 18 months but the time has come for a real upgrade in the centre-forward department.
One striker in particular who West Ham have been linked with is Union Berlin ace Taiwo Awoniyi (Bild).
The 24-year-old is allegedly available for just £17 million this summer according to Bild. And we think he’d be absolutely perfect for us…
Summer deal for Awoniyi makes sense in every way for West Ham
The Nigerian is about as close to Michail Antonio as you could get.
He is a real powerhouse and would be the perfect long-term replacement for the Jamaica international.
The Nigerian is a total menace for opposing defenders. The 24-year-old is absolutely rapid and is built the like a brick wall.
Awoniyi is a willing and tireless runner. His physical attributes help him occupy more than one defender at a time and that in turn creates space for his teammates.
He’s pretty good in front of goal as well with 18 goals and four assists to his name in 39 games for Union Berlin so far this season (Transfermarkt).
West Ham quite simply won’t be able to do any better than signing Awoniyi for £17 million in the summer.
It’s a signing that David Moyes quite simply must make before the start of next season.
