West Ham Prepares for Post-Antonio Era with Amoura Bid


West Ham United  have acknowledged the impending departure of club legend Michail Antonio and are actively seeking his successor.

The 34-year-old Jamaican striker’s contract expires at season’s end, and a contract extension seems unlikely. He has been a vital part of David Moyes’ system, but his age necessitates a long-term solution.

Also David Moyes‘ future at West Ham is unclear, potentially impacting transfer plans. Nevertheless, the club is pushing forward with squad renovations.

As a result, Royale Union Saint-Gilloise’s Mohamed Amoura has become a key target for West Ham. The Hammers have reportedly launched a €15 million bid, but the Belgian club is seeking closer to €20 million. The 23-year-old Algerian striker boasts an impressive record in the Belgian Pro League. He has netted 17 goals and provided 2 assists in 25 appearances, demonstrating his goal-scoring prowess. (stats from whoscored)

Amoura is not just a finisher; he creates chances for himself and teammates (6 big chances created this season) with a remarkable 21% goal conversion rate (missing only 3 big chances).

Like Antonio, Amoura utilises his pace effectively. However, statistics suggest Amoura possesses a superior finishing ability.

West Ham faces competition from Tottenham Hotspur, Brighton & Hove Albion, and Wolverhampton Wanderers for Amoura’s signature. Proactiveness will be key in securing him.

Make it so Mr Steidten !
