According to a report from Claret and Hugh, West Ham are working on a deal to sign Josh King in instalments in January.

Hammers boss David Moyes certainly needs to bolster his centre-forward ranks at the London Stadium when the transfer window reopens.

The Scot could be on the cusp of achieving something very special at West Ham.

We were a club in turmoil just five months ago. Moyes has managed to turn all of that around, however. Incredibly, he has done that whilst working under David Sullivan. And that is no mean feat.

To take the step up to the next level, however, the Hammers boss needs to bring in at least two or three top quality players.

The problem is Claret and Hugh suggests that money is tight at the London Stadium…yawn. We’ve heard it all before. But what can we do?

Until West Ham get new owners, we will never be able to complete financially with the league’s biggest clubs in the transfer market.

Until then, the Hammers fans will have to make do with being linked with players like Josh King.

Now, that isn’t all bad. The 51-capped Norway international would be a really useful addition for us.

Claret and Hugh claims that West Ham are trying to work out a deal where we would sign the Bournemouth striker in instalments.

The Hammers should be in a position of power somewhat. The 28-year-old ace is out of contract with the Cherries in the summer. So the Championship club will certainly not want to risk losing him for nothing in seven months time.

King – a hard working, versatile forward would be a really strong addition to Moyes’s side. And if West Ham can pick him up for a bargain fee in January it will be an absolute no-brainer for the east Londoners.
