West Ham fans have been discussing their goalscoring woes, and plenty have come to the same conclusion – sign the charismatic, fantastically bizarre enigma that is Mario Balotelli.
At this point, it’s pretty clear that Javier Hernandez probably does not have a future at West Ham.
The Mexican striker certainly knows where the goal is, but so long as David Moyes is in charge he is clearly not the first choice.
With that in mind, fans have been debating who should play up front next season, hoping a new signing can fire the Hammers back up the table next year.
Marko Arnautovic has excelled as a central striker, but the thought of the Austrian superstar and Manuel Lanzini playing off a truly top striker is an exciting prospect.
Nice’s Alassane Pléa is one name that has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs, but his teammate Mario Balotelli could be available on a free transfer this summer, and fans seem rather confident the Italian could find form in London.
Other fans are focusing their attention within the Premier League, looking at players that could be seeking new homes this summer, like Liverpool outcast Divock Origi.
Still, there is a remarkable amount of fans that seem to think signing Balotelli would be a good idea, and some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…
Balotelli is on a free

There’s that French striker plea? I think that’s his name and he’s scored tons of goals in Ligue 1. To be fair that is the French league tho.. but I wouldn’t mind taking the risk.

Balotelli is currently on free transfer; would be welcomed with open arms and a team and club like West Ham could bring the same affect as it has done for Arnautovic in terms of bringing out the best of him on a weekly basis. We should be all over this; especially given our board
