The Hammers’ priority this month is clearly to sign an established centre-forward.

Sebastien Haller left the London Stadium to join Ajax last week. And we are now incredibly light in the centre-forward department.

David Moyes will be desperate to add a new striker to his ranks before the transfer window slams shut.

West Ham need to be careful, however. We cannot afford to neglect other areas of the squad which are in urgent need of addressing.

One particular area where the Hammers need to bolster is left-back.

Arthur Masuaku is still out recovering from knee surgery leaving Aaron Cresswell and Ben Johnson as our only real options.

West Ham should be all over Junior Firpo

Ideally, we would sign someone who can play as both a left-back and a left wing-back.

 

With that in mind, Barcelona ace Junior Firpo would be absolutely ideal.

And ExWHUemployee has claimed that the 24-year-old could be a potential loan option for West Ham.

The Spaniard is a top class talent.

He has been described as an outstanding player who excels in 1v1’s, both from an attacking and a defensive perspective (Total Football Analysis).

The 24-year-old can operate either at left-back or left-wing-back. And he is exactly the kind of player Moyes should be looking to sign.

If West Ham can pick Firpo up on loan with an option to buy it should be an absolute no-brainer for David Moyes.

Fingers crossed that we can get this one done!
