Report claims West Ham could sign Anthony Lozano for £9 million

West Ham are chasing Cadiz CF striker Anthony Lozano according to a report from Goal.

And €10 million (£9 million) could be enough to bring the 27-year-old to the London Stadium (Goal).

David Moyes desperately needs to sign a new striker this month.

The Hammers are incredibly light in the centre-forward department after Sebastien Haller was moved on to Ajax earlier this month.

West Ham have a superb chance of finishing inside the top six this season. It would be such a shame if the club’s owners threw it all away by failing to back David Moyes in the transfer market, however.

The Hammers cannot rely solely upon Michail Antonio for the remainder of the campaign, that’s for sure.

West Ham to move in for Anthony Lozano?

The 27-year-old Cadiz CF striker is on the radar of the Hammers according to a report from Goal.

And West Ham would have to pay just £9 million to bring him to East London (Goal).

Let’s be honest here, however. Surely we can do a lot better than the Honduran right?

Not only is he far from prolific, but he is also completely unproven in the Premier League.

The 27-year-old has scored just three goals in 18 games for Cadiz this season. He also has just 48 goals to his name in 249 career appearances (Transfermarkt).

Despite some of the extortionate fees being paid for transfers nowadays, £9 million is still £9 million. And that sounds like an awful lot of money for someone who has no Premier League experience.

Let’s not forget that he has a really poor goal record as well.

West Ham could definitely do a lot better than Lozano. Even if we signed someone on a short-term loan deal. Someone like Edin Dzeko perhaps?

And then go all out for a top class striker in the summer.

David Moyes absolutely must get the striker signing right. It could end up defining his time in charge of the Hammers.

Let’s just hope that the Scot doesn’t rush into bringing someone to the club who he isn’t completely sold on.
