Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to bring a top-class centre-forward to the London Stadium next month.

Michail Antonio can’t do everything on his own and the 31-year-old is in dire need of more quality competition and cover.

West Ham signing a top-class striker in January could be the difference between sixth and fourth place in the Premier League table this season.

4-4-2.CH writer Andre Oechsner claims that Moyes has identified Cabral as the ideal addition to his squad. And we might just be able to snap him up for a bargain fee next month.

West Ham could sign Cabral on the cheap in January

Calciomercato.it reckon that the Hammers could prise the striker away from Basel for just £10 million. That would be an absolute bargain for the East London outfit.

We think that Cabral would be an exceptional addition for West Ham.

The 23-year-old Brazilian has been on fire for Basel this season, bagging 27 goals and eight assists in just 31 games in all competitions (Transfermarkt).

Cabral is energetic, dynamic, have great movement and is an exemplary finisher. The one red flag for West Ham is that he isn’t the fastest.

That may be somewhat of a concern considering how crucial pace is in the Premier League.

In spite of his lack of pace, we still believe that he would be the ideal January addition for West Ham. His technical prowess and ability to link the play would offer Moyes a completely different option through the middle.
