ExWHUemployee has lifted the lid on West Ham United’s failed attempts to sign RB Leipzig ace Hwang Hee-chan.

In other news…Report: West Ham are the only option for striker with 50 Premier League goals on deadline day

At the clock continues to tick down, it seems more and more unlikely that the Hammers will sign a striker today.

David Moyes’s failure to strengthen his attacking options this month is a total disaster. It’s not his fault though.

We all know where the blame lies.

There hasn’t been a lack of names linked with moves to West Ham this month, however.

According to a report from Sky Sports, the Hammers were in the midst of discussions with RB Leipzig about bringing Hwang Hee-chan to the London Stadium.

The 25-year-old Leipzig ace could have been available for around €15 million (£13.3 million) according to Buli News.

The Hammers ended up missing out on Hwang.

And well-respected club insider ExWHUemployee today lifted the lid on why we failed to bring the Korean to the London Stadium:

If Moyes doesn’t manage to sign a new striker before tonight’s 11pm deadline, we will surely struggle to finish inside the top six.

It is such a shame that the board don’t have the same ambition as us fans.

Hwang would have been an ideal signing this month. In fairness to the owners, however, it seems as though this one wasn’t their fault. That’s according to Ex at least.
