West Ham United fans want Jay Rodriguez signed from West Bromwich Albion

West Ham United could be on the look out for a striker and West Bromwich Albion forward Jay Rodriguez is available for £5m.

West Ham United fans have suggested that they should move for Jay Rodriguez, as he is available for just £5 million from West Bromwich Albion.

The Telegraph claim that West Brom have entered a clause into Rodriguez’s contract which means he can leave on a cut price, and that has made the deal appealing to West Ham supporters.

 

The Hammers need to bring in more quality up-front, with Lucas Perez leaving and Javier Hernandez set to depart.

And West Ham supporters have suggested that moving for the West Brom forward would be a smart move.

Rodriguez scored 22 goals in the Championship last season for West Brom, and seems to have got his confidence back.

The 29-year-old was making great progress in the Premier League back in 2014, only for a cruciate ligament injury to prove a huge set-back.

Rodriguez seems to be over those problems now though, and a move to West Ham may well appeal, as he looks to get back to playing top flight football.

If Rodriguez was to move to the London Stadium he would be in competition with Marko Arnautovic for a striking place.
