Premier League club West Ham are ready to rival Scottish side Rangers for Bordeaux’s Nigerian young striker Maja.
Maja made his breakthrough at Sunderland under current West Ham boss David Moyes.
He made his debut in September 2016, before leaving the Stadium of Light in January 2019 to join French Ligue 1 outfit Bordeaux.
Rangers have Maja on their shortlist of strikers to replace their forward Alfredo Morelos who is wanted by Lille.
Moyes is also weighing up a move for 21 year-old Maja as he aims to add firepower to his squad after keeping West Ham up.
Maja was Bordeaux’s joint-top scorer, netting eight times in just eight starts, with a further 16 appearances coming as a substitute, before the French season came to a premature end in March due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Maja is not pushing for a move but the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic may force Bordeaux to sell in order to raise funds.
Moyes is hoping to bring in some young homegrown talent to improve his squad this summer.
Along with Maja and QPR’s Eberechi Eze, West Ham are also interested in Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White.
