Insider claims Abraham is one of five strikers on West Ham’s summer shortlist

That left West Ham fans pondering who the other four are?

Moyes runs a very tight ship when it comes to keeping things in-house.

The Scot does not like airing West Ham’s business in public.

And he keeps team selection, injury news and transfer targets a closely guarded secret.

But for those following West Ham transfer news over the last couple of months it seems the other four strikers on Moyes’s wishlist are pretty clear.

Are these the other four?

First there is Youssef En-Nesyri.

West Ham failed with a move for the Sevilla striker in January. And Moyes even admitted he had bid for the Moroccan (Claret & Hugh).

The Hammers are expected to try again but Sevilla have offered En-Nesyri a new deal to fend off interest.

Ivan Toney is another Moyes likes according to widespread reports (Eurosport).

Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony claimed David Sullivan told him he regrets not signing Toney last summer. MacAnthony made the revelation when speaking on the Hard Truth Podcast.

And then ExWHUemployee confirmed those claims a few days later, when speaking on the West Ham Way podcast (Thursday February 11th). The club insider suggested that he knows for a fact David Moyes wants to sign the Championship forward.

Blackburn forward Adam Armstrong is another on Moyes’s radar.

According to the likes of The Sun, Rovers have slapped a £25m price tag on their 20-goal hitman ahead of an expected bid from the Hammers in the summer.

Slavia’s Sima the ‘number one’ target?

That brings us on to striker target number five, Abdallah Sima.

Depending on who you believe, Sima is actually Moyes’s number one target to finally replace Sebastien Haller.

According to a report from the Mirror (Friday January 8th, Page 61), Sima is West Ham’s prime centre-forward target.

West Ham midfield star Tomas Soucek helped bring Vladimir Coufal to the club.

And he has also urged West Ham to sign another Slavia Prague star in the shape of Sima (CT Sport).

Slavia president Jaroslav Tvrdik told i Sport that he recently rejected a €10 million (£9 million) bid for Sima.

So West Ham will likely have to part with all the Haller money – and possibly more – to land a player also reportedly being eyed by the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal.
