Forward Confident West Ham United Keeping Tabs On Him: Should Pellegrini Give Him A Chance?

In a recent interview with the Kilburn Times, West Ham striker Jordan Hugill, who is currently playing on loan at Queens Park Rangers, shed some light on his future and said, “It’s one of them things where I can only improve on what I did last year so if I can improve on that this early then who knows where I can go.

I believe personally that I’m a Premier League player. For me now my focus is to get QPR in the Premier League. I’m sure they’re [West Ham] keeping tabs and doing what they do but for me personally I’m just focused on what I’m doing here.”

Hugill’s Impressive Start To This Campaign

Hugill’s words prove that he is a confident player who is eager to make his mark in Premier League football. The 27-year-old has enjoyed a stellar start to this season after finding the back of the net on five occasions in ten matches for QPR in the EFL Championship. He has made a total of three senior appearances for the East London outfit so far but is yet to prove his worth at the London Stadium.

The Middlesbrough-born attacker has gradually transformed himself into a potent goal-scorer in the second tier of English football. However, Hugill is still untested in the English top-flight, so he might struggle to cope with the physicality and high intensity of top tier football.

For now, it seems like a long way back for the QPR talent. However, if he can continue producing the goods in the Championship, then West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini will have no choice but to take notice of his contributions while on loan at Loftus Road.

What Are The English Frontman’s Best Attributes?

On his day, Hugill can be a prolific marksman for his team up top. He is a consistent goal-scorer but needs to improve his numbers even more if he wants to earn another chance to succeed at the highest level. The English forward is a dominating presence in the air as he can win most of the aerial duels with the opposition. He tends to score a lot of goals with his head and is not afraid to work hard for his teammates.

Should The Hammers Give Hugill An Opportunity Next Season?

Hence, Pellegrini should consider giving Hugill a chance to shine during preseason next year as he is a striker who could still be an ideal back-up for Sebastien Haller. Furthermore, he will also improve West Ham’s attacking options significantly if they decide to give him a shot at the senior level.
