According to a report from the Sunday Mirror (5/1; page 63), West Ham want to sign Sevilla hitman Munas Dabbur this month.
The Hammers are incredibly light up front, with Sebastien Haller struggling to establish himself.
Albian Ajeti is offering little in the form of competition for the Frenchman, so signing another forward this month should be a priority for West Ham.
The Sunday Mirror claims that the 21-capped Israel international is on the Hammers’ radar.
The 27-year-old has really struggled since joining Sevilla in the summer.
Dabbur has played just nine games this season, although he has still managed to score three goals, with all of those coming in the Europa League.
The Israeli hitman is a very hard worker, and he also possesses impressive technique. Dabbur has good movement, and would undoubtedly make a nuisance of himself, if he did in fact join West Ham.
The truth of the matter, however, is that he just hasn’t proven himself in La Liga, and the jump up to the more intense Premier League might just prove to be a difficult one for him.
The report claiming the Hammers’ interest does not mention how much Sevilla would demand for the 27-year-old.
But considering the fact that he was signed for around £12.8m (Football Espana), Sevilla would surely expect a similar fee from West Ham for his services.
