West Ham United are now prioritising the signing of a new striker.

According to Sean Whetstone – a reporter with close West Ham board contacts – Hammers boss David Moyes is now desperately on the hunt for a new centre-forward.

The Hammers have just been linked with a move to sign long-term target Youssef En-Nesyri from Sevilla as well.

And it seems as though the addition of a top-class centre-forward could well be Moyes’s main priority between now and the end of the summer transfer window…

Michail Antonio was superb during the second-half against Chelsea on Sunday, but it’s clear to see that we need another strong and pacy option through the middle.

En-Nesyri would be the perfect option for the Hammers as far as I’m concerned.

The Moroccan is a tireless runner, is very strong in the air and is a superb finisher when represented with a goalscoring opportunity.

He is very good when playing with his back to goal as well and is proficient at holding up the ball.

If David Moyes manages to get the signing of the Sevilla striker over the line before deadline day, then I think we’ll be in great shape heading into the season.

It seems as though West Ham have a strong chance to finally sign En-Nesyri after more than two years of trying. And with Moyes prioritising the signing of a new centre-forward, it would be no surprise at all if the 26-year-old is London Stadium bound soon
