Former Hammers favourite Jimmy Walker believes he has spotted a potential West Ham United star in the making at the Euros.
David Moyes is looking to sign at least one striker this summer after West Ham were left with injury prone Michail Antonio as their only senior forward following the sale of Sebastien Haller in January.

Moyes is working for UEFA in a technical observer role at Euro 2020. And he has already suggested in his column in The Times that he will be scouting potential signings at the tournament.
West Ham duo Vladimir Coufal and Tomas Soucek both registered assists as the Czechs beat the Scots 2-0.
It was striker Patrik Schick who stole the show, though, with both goals. His first was a fantastic striker’s header from a Coufal cross.

“Ooof some strike that Schick Got a West Ham player written all over him,” Walker said on Twitter.
