West Ham are preparing for their January transfer activity in around six weeks time, after a woeful start to the season has left them floundering at the wrong end of the Premier League table.
The Hammers have won just one of their last 12 league matches, heading into tonight’s crucial game against Leicester City, and replaced Slaven Bilic with David Moyes during the recent international break.
Moyes wasn’t able to oversee immediate improvements, losing 2-0 to Watford in his first game in charge, and he’s keen to strengthen his attacking options in January- which could see him make a move for a former Premier League striker.
Reports in Italy state West Ham are one of four Premier League sides interested in the services of former Watford striker Odion Ighalo, who’s scored 15 goals in 27 matches since moving to the Far East earlier this year.
The 28-year-old was a star for the Hornets in their return to the top-flight, then hitting 15 goals in his first Premier League season, but struggled in his second campaign- scoring just one goal in 17 matches before moving to China.
