Hammers boss David Moyes is desperate to bolster his centre-forward ranks at the London Stadium.

Michail Antonio is currently the Scot’s only option through the middle.

That is quite unbelievable considering how many games West Ham are due to play this season.

Hopefully Moyes manages to bring a top class centre-forward to the London Stadium before the transfer window closes. Until then we have to trust the Scot and hope that David Sullivan and David Gold pull a rabbit out the hat.

ExWHUemployee explains West Ham striker signing situation

The Hammers insider responded when asked by a Hammers fan on Twitter why Moyes is still yet to sign a new striker…


That really is frustrating.

Why didn’t the board know that Tammy Abraham would cost in excess of £30 million?

And why did they not have back-up options already identified.

Danny Ings, Boulaye Dia, Patson Daka and Adam Armstrong have all moved this summer. Any of those four would have been useful additions for the Hammers.

The fact that we haven’t yet signed a new striker is beyond farcical.

As mentioned earlier, there is a still a lot of time left for all of that to change.
