The door could be wide open for West Ham United to sign one of David Moyes’s top transfer targets in January.

The summer transfer window came and went with four new players arriving at West Ham, as well as Andy Irving who was immediately sent back to SK Austria Klagenfurt on loan.

It really was a great window for the Hammers, but one criticism of David Moyes has to be that he failed to sign a striker.

One forward heavily linked with a move to the London Stadium was Hugo Ekitikethe 21-year-old Frenchman was actually thought to be the top striker target for Moyes and Tim Steidten.

He stayed with PSG in the end but one recent report gives me hope that Moyes will be able to sign him in January…

According to a report from Foot Mercato, Ekitike is totally unwanted at PSG, and will play a minimal role for the team this season.

This should leave the door wide open for Moyes to bring him to the London Stadium in January.

He’s said to be worth around £30 million according to Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna.

Ekitike is the perfect striker for us and the way we play, what with his electric pace, incredible movement and devastating finishing.

The Frenchman would take this Hammers team to a whole new level entirely, and he is the natural heir to Michail Antonio.

Moyes absolutely has to get a deal done for him by any means necessary.

And I think that after Foot Mercato’s latest claim, the door should be wide open for West Ham to sign Hugo Ekitike in the January transfer window.
