Eight strikers West Ham should target in January
West Ham have had a fair few problems this season. Their move from Upton Park to the London Stadium has been a disaster, injuries have robbed them of some of their key stars and results have, on the whole, been awful, with the club sitting 17th in the Premier League.
Although there are many reasons for the Irons’ woes, we at Football FanCast think their botched summer drive to get a striker is among the bigger issues. The Hammers’ long search saw them knocked back more times than a spotty teenager at a school disco as a host of big players either laughed them away from the negotiation table or clubs kindly rejected their somewhat speculative advances.
Since then, they’ve managed just a goal-a-game in the league. That may well improve with Andre Ayew back fit, but we think January is a key period for the club – with adding a striker to their ranks sure to be on the agenda.
