3 English strikers West Ham should sign instead of Daniel Sturridge


3. Troy Deeney

Watford are unlikely to sell Deeney for anything less than at least £30 million, but the 28-year-old is everything West Ham are crying out for. Versatile in his play, Deeney is strong enough to operate as a target man, nippy enough to operate as an outlet on the counter and talented enough to bag goal after goal. The Hornets’ skipper bagged 13 Premier League goals this season and has scored seven so far this term, two of which came against Slaven Bilic’s side. Deeney scored after just four minutes in Watford’s recent home loss to Southampton and has spent a very short amount of time injured of late.
