'Cult hero vibes': West Ham fans are buzzing as David Moyes chases 'quality' January transfer window signing

West Ham fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the news that David Moyes wants to bring Ben Brereton Diaz to the London Stadium in the January transfer window.

Hammers boss Moyes is prioritising a move to sign the 22-year-old Blackburn hitman before the January window closes according to a report from The Express.

And then Claret and Hugh claimed that the Championship outfit are demanding a massive £28.5 million fee for Brereton Diaz.

West Ham desperately need to sign a top-class centre-forward this month.

Michail Antonio is currently the only recognised senior striker at the London Stadium and that quite clearly isn’t acceptable for a club with aspirations of challenging for honours both domestically and on the continent.

Moyes is clearly very keen to address that issue though.

Brereton Diaz would be a very useful addition for the Hammers.

The centre-forward has 20 goals in 27 Championship appearances for Blackburn to his name this season (Transfermarkt). He isn’t the quickest but he’s a hard-working forward and is a very good finisher.

It must be said though, £28.5 million is an awful lot of money for West Ham to be paying for the 22-year-old, considering the fact that he has absolutely no pedigree at Premier League level.

West Ham fans react on Twitter to January Brereton Diaz rumours

Whilst the Chile international isn’t proven at Premier League level, sometimes players from the Championship are well worth a punt.

Just look what the Hammers have done with Jarrod Bowen, Michail Antonio, Aaron Cresswell and Said Benrahma.

The 22-year-old Blackburn striker doesn’t possesses rapid speed but aside from that, he has all of the qualities needed to succeed at the very highest level.

And some West Ham fans took to Twitter in reaction to the links with Brereton Diaz…
