West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini should consider a move for Danny Welbeck this summer, to add more strength in depth to his attacking options.

The Hammers have already signed Sebastien Haller for £45 million. They sold Marko Arnautovic and released Andy Carroll, however, leaving only Javier Hernandez as backup for the Frenchman.

And the former Arsenal man could be just the ticket for West Ham.

Welbeck has experienced injury problems in recent seasons, however, so a move for the Englishman would not be without risk.

The 42-capped international’s availability on a free though, limits said risk.

He can play anywhere along the front-line, and his experience in playing at the very highest level for such a prolonged period of time would surely prove to be a great asset for the Hammers.

The Sun claims that Welbeck is demanding £100,000 per week, and it might just be beneficial for West Ham to offer the forward a short-term deal.

The 42-capped England international still possesses blistering pace, and he would provide the east London outfit with a real threat in behind.

Welbeck would also offer more competition to the likes of Felipe Anderson, Michail Antonio and Robert Snodgrass in the wide attacking areas.

And his availability on a free makes a move for him an absolute no-brainer for West Ham, in spite of his excessive wage demands.
