West Ham have made a move to sign Juventus striker Moise Kean.

According to a report from Calciomercato, the Italian is ‘looking for a way out’ of the Italy giants this summer.

It’s believed both the Hammers and Fulham are interested in giving him a return to the Premier League, where he scored just twice in 32 appearances for Everton between 2019 and 2021.

Since his return to Italy, the 22-year-old has scored five goals in 32 league appearances but was limited to just 12 Serie A starts last term, despite making 42 appearances in all competitions throughout 21/22.

David Moyes is desperate to sign a striker this summer, knowing that another season with just Michail Antonio as his only strike option would be unacceptable if he is to replicate the kind of success he has enjoyed since returning to East London almost three years ago.

However, on the basis of Kean’s stats at every club he’s been at, it’s difficult to see how he could be the answer to West Ham’s on-going striker curse.

In 163 career first-team appearances to date, the striker has netted 39 goals. That’s a goal every 4.18 games.

If he were to sign for West Ham and replicate that goal ratio while playing the same amount of first-team games as Antonio did last season, 47, he would score 11 goals. That’s two fewer than Antonio bagged in 21/22.

Therefore, Kean’s career stats to date, albeit still only being 22, don’t really suggest he’s the striker to immediately solve our striker crisis.

The plan should be to bring in a player who we can confident will bag 15 or more goals a season, ideally 20 plus if we’re really going to push on.

Kean doesn’t appear to be that striker right now, especially when taking into account his disastrous spell at Everton, but I would love to be proven wrong if a deal were to happen this summer.
