Former West Ham United player Frank McAvennie has claimed that Odsonne Edouard could be a quality addition for the Hammers.

However, the former Hammers ace has warned that David Moyes should consider the striker’s attitude before making a move to sign him.

McAvennie said to Football Insider: “I would take Edouard at West Ham, but the way he downed tools with Lenny (Neil Lennon) was disappointing.

“The boy’s got talent, and West Ham need a striker. But if David Moyes would have that kind of player, I don’t know. But you get the ball up to him and he keeps it. He’s definitely a talent.”

The Frenchman was angling for a move away from Celtic when Lennon was in charge of the Scottish club and was being unprofessional at the time.

The 23-year-old was heavily linked with a move away from Celtic at the start of this season, and it seems quite likely that the player will move on after a disappointing campaign with the Hoops.

Edouard has already proven himself to be one of the best players in the Scottish Premiership, and he will be hoping to challenge himself at a higher level.

A move to the Premier League could be ideal for the Frenchman at this stage of his career.

The Hammers need to sign a quality striker to replace Sebastien Haller, and Edouard would be a superb long-term investment for them.

The Frenchman has 20 goals this season and could develop into a top-class forward in the coming years.
