One thing that has become even clearer right now is West Ham’s need for another striker. With everybody expecting the worst in terms of Valencia’s injury and the fact that only Zarate, Sakho and Maiga remain as the only senior strikers in the squad, alarm bells must surely be ringing in the Gold and Sullivan camp.
The summer window has gone brilliantly for West Ham so far but the striker issue is still something that has not been resolved. Javier Hernandez and Charlie Austin are the names that many fans would want to see sign for the club but at the moment, those deals do not look like progressing any further.
Recent reports suggest that West Ham are trying to tie up a loan move for Atletico Madrid striker Raul Jimenez. He’s relatively unknown to a lot of us so here’s a scout report highlighting exactly what West Ham would get if the Mexican arrived at the club.
