West Ham fans believe that they’ve spotted the clearest hint yet that David Moyes will not be signing a striker this month.
The Hammers’ need for a new centre-forward is so clear and obvious to see.
We quite simply cannot go on for much longer with Michail Antonio as our only recognised senior centre-forward.
Bringing a top-class forward to the London Stadium before the January transfer window slams shut will be absolutely vital to our hopes of challenging for a top four spot this season.

The fact that we are said to be scouting someone now who is at the Africa Cup of Nations is strange.
Surely we’ve had enough time over the past year to do our due diligence on En-Nesyri?
