The Hammers current centre-forward options are actually laughable considering our position in the Premier League table.

Michail Antonio is the only recognised senior striker at the London Stadium. And he is a winger really!

David Moyes absolutely must address that particular issue in the summer.

Calcio Mercato claims that West Ham could make a move to sign Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic.

The 21-year-old is a really exciting talent

Have West Ham found the new Zlatan Ibrahimovic?

The Serbia international has scored nine goals in 24 Serie A games for Fiorentina this season (Transfermarkt).


Back in 2016, Vlahovic was scouted by Juventus with the Italian club’s scouts branding him as ‘the new Zlatan Ibrahimovic’ (The Sun).

Standing at 6ft 2in tall, the Fiorentina ace certainly has similar physical attributes to Zlatan.

The Swedish legend has won nearly all there is to win in the game. He has scored an incredible 545 career goals for club and country (Transfermarkt).

If Vlahovic enjoys even half the career that Zlatan has, he will end up being a truly top class player.

According to Roma Press, Fiorentina value the Serbian at around €30 million (£26 million).

That seems like decent value for West Ham considering his talented and incredible potential.

This would certainly be a signing that we could all really get behind!
