In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Rob Lee, who made 280 Premier League appearances, has claimed that David Moyes will look to spend most of this summer’s transfer budget on a new striker.
This left Moyes with just Michail Antonio, who missed several weeks with a hamstring injury, as his only striker option, although he did return to the starting line up earlier this week against Burnley, netting an important brace in a 2-1 win.
Speaking on why Moyes will look to spend most of his money on a striker this summer and how they desperately need one, Lee exclusively told FFC:
“I think he’ll spend a lot of money on a centre forward because I think he has to as they have a well-balanced team, but they just need more players.
“They desperately need a centre forward and someone who can challenge Jesse Lingard, if they sign him permanently.”
It was reported in January that West ham launched a bid for the Sevilla striker, Youssef En-Nesyri, but the Spanish side rejected it straight away.
