West Ham boss David Moyes will undoubtedly be looking to bolster his attacking ranks at the london Stadium this summer. And the Scot might just have the opportunity to sign previous Manuel Pellegrini target Wissam Ben Yedder for a bargain fee.

The Hammers obviously need to retain their Premier League status before they can even consider making a move for someone like Ben Yedder.
But if they do just that, they could secure themselves a bargain.
The 29-year-old Monaco ace could be available for just £25 million this summer (ESPN). And that would represent fantastic value for West Ham.
The east London outfit are big fans of the French striker, according to reliable insider ExWHUemployee.
Football.London also claimed that West Ham were keen to sign Ben Yedder last summer when Manuel Pellegrini was in charge at the London Stadium.
The 29-year-old has been one of the hottest strikers in Europe this season.
He joined Monaco for around £34 million in the summer of 2019 (Bleacher Report).
The Frenchman has made an impressive start to life in the principality, scoring 19 goals in 31 games so far this season (Transfermarkt).
Ben Yedder is clearly a top class striker, with 160 goals in 343 career games to his name (Transfermarkt).
He really would be the ideal strike partner for the misfiring Sebastien Haller. And perhaps the 29-year-old could bring the best out of the 25-year-old.
£25 million would represent fantastic business for West Ham. But much will depend on whether than can afford that fee this summer, given the financial ramifications of the ongoing global health crisis.
If David Moyes manages to shift some of the deadwood this summer, however, the Hammers should be more than capable of paying that kind of fee for someone like Ben Yedder.
And what a truly brilliant signing he would be for the east London outfit.
