West Ham loanee Jordan Hugill should not be used next season

West Ham’s forward area certainly needs addressing before next season and they could do with some extra ammunition at the London Stadium.

The likes of Andy Carroll, Lucas Perez and Javier Hernandez are hardly consistent enough to be the frontline striker, while Marko Arnautovic could do with some more competition.

They do have centre-forward Jordan Hugill out on loan this season at Championship club Middlesbrough.

Hugill has scored seven goals in 30 appearances across all competitions for Boro and is playing his role in a push for promotion.

Hugill appears to have found his level at the Championship, but the step up to the Premier League is quite a steep one.

There were plenty of eyebrows raised when the Hammers splashed out £10million (BBC) for him in January 2018 and he lasted just half a season before he was shipped out on loan.

The striker was given just three first-team appearances for West Ham and it seems he’s not at the level required.

He can be a decent finisher and a strong option in the Championship, but Pellegrini should consider selling him in the summer.
