in a recent report, The Guardian mentioned that West Ham United are interested in signing  Memphis Depay from Barcelona. It is understood that the Catalan club are required to offload a few players in order to ease their financial problems and they have decided to let this Dutch forward leave on a free transfer.

Depay’s Impressive Run Of Form For Barcelona Last Season

Depay had a successful campaign at the Nou Camp as he managed to put in a series of influential displays for Barca in the attacking third. He scored 13 goals and produced two assists over 38 appearances for the Catalan club last season across all fronts.

The 79-time Netherlands international gave a good account of himself after a consistent run of form based on his averages of 2.2 shots, 1.6 key passes and 1.6 dribbles per game in La Liga. He was even tidy with his ball distribution after making 82.1% of his attempted passes in the top tier of Spanish football (stats via whoscored).

Should Moyes Bring Him To West Ham United?

Memphis Depay excels at generating a yard of space for himself to get a few strikes in on-target. The Dutchman is an accurate finisher of the ball when he’s isolated against the goalkeeper. He can shoot the ball with power and accuracy from a distance and remains an attacking threat in the final third.

The Nederlands international is primarily a centre-forward but can operate as a left-sided wide player when required, which makes him a decent fit for David Moyes.

Moyes has been wise to identify him as a target in the summer transfer window as the 28-year-old can help them in their run for a top-four finish. The Hammers could offer him first-team football and a lucrative wage to lure him to East London as this could be a golden opportunity to bolster their attack.
