Former Sunderland striker Josh Maja is on West Ham United’s transfer radar.

The 21-year-old, who came through the ranks at the Stadium of Light before signing for Bordeaux in January 2019, has bagged 9 goals in 31 games for the French club this season.

It’s understood Hammers boss David Moyes is keen on Maja, with Moyes handing him his senior debut in 2016 when manager of Sunderland.

Reports claim Maja isn’t angling for a move away from Bordeaux, but the Ligue 1 side may consider selling him in order to boost their coronavirus-impacted finances.

West Ham have preferred to use long-time forward Michail Antonio up front recently as opposed to £45m summer signing Sebastien Haller, and with fellow summer flop Albian Ajeti not pulling up trees, this is a move that seemingly makes sense.
