West Ham want to sign a £52.4m striker who plays 'like Luis Suarez' amid reports Moyes is keen
With just over a couple of weeks until the transfer window ends, West Ham have done an alarmingly small amount of business.
David Moyes has Europa League football added to his schedule this season, but only one new face has arrived in Alphonse Areola.
However, West Ham are said to be keen to sign Real Madrid forward Luka Jovic – if he arrived, it would make things substantially better.
Who is Luka Jovic?
If you aren’t familiar with the 14-cap Serbia international, then you should know that Jovic is a brilliant striker.
The 23-year-old earned a £52.4m move to Real Madrid after scoring 27 goals in 48 appearances for Eintracht Frankfurt in the 2018/19 season.
Sadly, Jovic has struggled in Spain, scoring just two goals in 32 appearances.
However, aged just 23, he still has plenty of time to enjoy a successful career.
Luka Jovic plays like Luis Suarez
The Bundesliga published a feature on Jovic, in which it was said that he plays like Luis Suarez, but has more quality than the Uruguayan.
That is according to Omar Mascarell, who played alongside him at Eintracht Frankfurt.
Mascarell said: “I would say he’s like Luis Suarez, but with a lot more quality.”
Interestingly, Jovic has also been likened to Colombian hitman Radamel Falcao, who was arguably the best striker in Europe during his prime.
If Moyes brings Jovic to the London Stadium, it’s a transfer that should make West Ham supporters very excited indeed.
