Three reasons West Ham target Lukasz Teodorczyk would be a Carroll upgrade

According to reports in The Mirror, West Ham United are targeting a move for Anderlecht striker Lukasz Teodorczyk this summer.

Irons boss Slaven Bilic is keen to bring in a new centre-forward at the end of the season with Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho once again suffering injury problems throughout the campaign – sometimes leaving the team without a recognised striker.

It has been a frustrating situation for Bilic, whose side have struggled to adapt to life at the London Stadium.

One player that is understood to have caught his eye is the 25-year-old Poland international, who has impressed for the Belgian outfit this term after initially joining them on a season-long loan deal from Dynamo Kyiv last summer.

The move was made permanent in March but despite that, the Irons are said to be readying a bid for the prolific marksman as they look to solve their striker issue. The striker is rated at £10.63m by transfermarkt.com.
