Huge boost for West Ham as report claims David Moyes now has a great chance of signing Fashion Sakala on a free in the summer

According to a report from the Daily Record, West Ham United have been given the green light to sign KV Oostende striker Fashion Sakala.

The Hammers were linked with a move to sign the 23-year-old the day before January deadline day (Voetbal Krant).

David Moyes chose not to bring a new striker to the London Stadium, however.

Let’s hope the Scot doesn’t live to regret that decision.

Whatever happens between now and the end of the season, West Ham absolutely need to bolster their centre-forward ranks in the summer.

One option for the Hammers could be KV Oostende hitman Fashion Sakala.

In fact, the Daily Record claims that West Ham may now have a brilliant chance of signing the Zambia international.

West Ham could sign Fashion Sakala for bargain fee

Sakala has allegedly snubbed fresh contract talks with the Belgian club. And with his contract set to expire in the summer, he is now free to sign a pre-contract agreement with any club outside of Belgium.

Sakala has scored 13 goals in 21 league games for Oostende this season (Transfermarkt). He can play anywhere along the frontline and is a real handful for opposing defenders.

Standing at 5ft 10 in tall, Sakala is an incredibly mobile striker. He likes to play off the shoulder of the last defender. The forward is also well known for making tireless runs in behind the opposition’s defence and chasing lost causes (footballbh.net).

The 23-year-old would be a decent addition for West Ham in the summer, especially on a free transfer. If David Moyes does bring him to East London, the Hammers fans will be expecting a more high profile name to be signed as well, however.
