Hugo Ekitike is the name being most prominently linked with a move to the London Stadium right now, but there’s seemingly some bad news for the West Ham fans to digest…

And the West Ham reporter highlighted how it is now unlikely that a new forward will arrive at the London Stadium before tomorrow’s 11pm deadline:

I have to say, it will be hugely disappointing if Moyes doesn’t manage to sign a striker before deadline day.

With Gianluca Scamacca having been sold earlier on in the window, Moyes now has only Michail Antonio and Danny Ings as centre-forward options.

If there is any chance whatsoever of West Ham making a push for the top six this season, I’m convinced that we need to sign a top-class striker before 11pm tomorrow, someone like Hugo Ekitike.

As things stand though, it seems highly unlikely that that will happen. What a shame.
