West Ham have acquired the services of some good players such as Lanzini on a permanent deal, Nordtveit, Feghouli and Töre already in this transfer window, however the ‘marquee’ striker continues to elude Bilic’s side.
Colombian forward Carlos Bacca looks set to reject the chance to sign for West Ham as he wants Champions League football. With Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho looking likely to leave East London this summer, the club will need to bring in forwards and Argentine Jonathan Calleri looks close to signing, although with West Ham, you never know!
There definitely are strikers on the market but whoever signs for the club might be slightly underwhelming for some fans when you consider the names we’ve been linked with previously. Although, perhaps the club should be looking now for value for money, after all Gold and Sullivan have stated they’d like to ‘find the next Dimitri Payet’. These are the forwards who at the time of writing this have been linked with the club on several occasions and who may well replace Sakho and Valencia.
