West Ham United are interested in signing Spartak Moscow striker Jordan Larsson, the son of the great Henrik Larsson, according to a report from Goal.

Hammers boss David Moyes will be desperate to strengthen his centre-forward department at the London Stadium this summer.

West Ham have Michail Antonio as their only recognised senior centre-forward at the moment.

That clearly isn’t anywhere near being acceptable for a club who are chasing European football.

It is what it is though. Hopefully we manage to muddle through the final eight games without Antonio for at least four of them.

West Ham to swoop in for Jordan Larsson?

The real hard work will start in the summer.

Goal claims that Spartak Moscow hitman Jordan Larsson is a potential target for the Hammers.

 

The 23-year-old Sweden international has racked up 12 goals and five assists in 24 games for Spartak Moscow this season (Transfermarkt).

Larsson is very highly rated. He is an all-round striker in every sense.

The Spartak Moscow ace is good finisher and dribbler and he is also apt at holding the ball up with his back to goal. The 23-year-old is absolutely rapid as well.

Quite how much would be needed to praise him away from the Russian club remains to be seen.

He is obviously an unproven commodity in England and the Premier League. His talent is beyond doubt, however.

And Jordan Larsson is definitely someone West Ham should be taking a punt on in the summer.
