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

Sebastien Haller left the London Stadium for Ajax over two weeks ago.

Michail Antonio is now West Ham’s only recognised senior centre-forward at the club.

The Hammers have already been linked with a whole host of players spanning the globe.

West Ham now in for Andre Silva?

There is a new name on our radar today apparently.

The Daily Mail claims West Ham want to sign Andre Silva from Eintracht Frankfurt.

Silva joined Frankfurt in the summer of 2019 on a season long loan before making his move a permanent one the following summer.

The 37-capped Portugal international has been a real hit with the Bundesliga outfit, scoring 29 goals and racking up 10 assists in 55 games thus far (Transfermarkt).

 

The 25-year-old has enjoyed a superb season so far, with 12 goals in 16 Bundesliga games for Eintracht Frankfurt to his name (Transfermarkt).

He has so much talent and was once valued at a staggering €60 million (£53 million) according to ESPN.

Former West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini wanted to bring Silva to the London Stadium in the summer of 2019 according to Claret and Hugh.

At 25, the Portuguese hitman is at the ideal age to make the step up to the Premier League.

The problem for West Ham is that he surely won’t come cheap given his excellent start to the 2020/21 Bundesliga campaign.

If the Hammers are to sign a top class striker, however, they will have to pay the market rate.

We all know our owners too well, however. That is highly unlikely to happen. We will probably end up with a cheap foreign loan.

Roll on 2023…
