£10m-rated Josh Maja reportedly up for sale with West Ham and Crystal Palace previously linked

The striker has reportedly been put up for sale by the French side.

West Ham United have reportedly been keeping tracks of English striker Josh Maja in recent months, along with Premier League rivals Crystal Palace.

The former Sunderland striker joined Bordeaux in January 2019 after a fantastic season in front of goal at the Stadium of Light. 

The Sun reported last month that both West Ham and Palace viewed the striker as a potentially wise investment, with a price-tag of £10 million on the 21-year-old’s head. 

Now, it appears both teams might have reason to be prompted into action, with the French side set to put Maja up for sale this summer.

That is according to a report from Le10 Sport, who claim the Ligue 1 side want to raise €50 million in player sales this summer. Maja is one of the players the club are considering putting up for sale. 

 

West Ham need new striking options and Moyes knows Maja from his time managing at Sunderland, even if he was not yet in the first-team. 

Back then, as Moyes told The Chronicle, the striker was not ready for Premier League football but it could be argued that is no longer the case. 

Whilst £10 million might be a bit steep, if either club can get the pricetag down, then a move for Maja makes perfect sense for West Ham and Crystal Palace.
