Moyes had modest targets for January

Moyes told FourFourTwo last weekend that money is tight at West Ham.

But the Scot did make it clear the club would look to bring in signings if they can.

West Ham have been linked with a host of strikers on cheap or loan deals.

The likes of Josh King, Marko Arnautovic and Arkadiusz Milik were reportedly West Ham targets this month.

But according to ExWHUemployee, the impending £20million sale of flop striker Haller has changed all that.

Insider ExWHUemployee claims Moyes has new targets after Haller sale

West Ham have accepted £20m bid from Ajax for Haller (Sky Sports).

Bolstered by the incoming funds, Moyes now has money to play with and that appears to mean his targets have changed.

“The club had only received loan offers from Germany before so thought he would stay until the summer,” ExWHUemployee said on his Patreon site.

“This Ajax move (and one other club) has meant our own targets have changed. I will update these later.”

Who those strikers might be remains to be seen.

Fans wait to discover new targets as Dembele links re-emerge

But West Ham may now be able to afford to buy Milik – who is rated at around £15m by Napoli given his contract is up in the summer.

Another player on West Ham’s radar again is Lyon forward Moussa Dembele (RMC Sport).

The report claims the former Celtic and Fulham man ‘matches the criteria West Ham are looking for as they prepare to test Lyon’s resolve’.

ExWHUemployee says a move for Dembele is unlikely for a host of reasons.

West Ham fans will no doubt be waiting eagerly for ExWHUemployee’s update on which strikers Moyes is interested in.
