The Hammers boss desperately tried to sign a striker during the summer transfer window.

Unfortunately for the Scot, however, he failed to bring a new centre-forward to the London Stadium.

Perhaps Moyes will try to address his striker shortage in January in order to help ease the workload on the shoulders of Michail Antonio.

West Ham left with regret?

The Hammers were heavily linked with a move to sign Patson Daka from RB Salzburg throughout the entire summer transfer window (Salzburger Nachrichten and Zam Foot).

Leicester ended up signing the fleet-footed 22-year-old striker, however, for around £23 million (Sky Sports).

And missing out on the Zambian hitman already looks like a mistake from West Ham.

Daka was on fire for the Foxes during their Europa League clash with Spartak Moscow last night, scoring all four goals for Brendan Rodgers’ side during their 4-3 win.

The former RB Salzburg ace has now scored five goals in seven games for Leicester (Transfermarkt).

The Foxes fans will be delighted that they have him at the King Power Stadium.

Meanwhile, the West Ham fans will be ruing the fact that we missed out on the Zambia international.
