West Ham United have been linked with a move for Rangers attacker Josh Windass but should instead focus their attentions on Celtic.

According to The Scottish Sun, West Ham are one of four clubs interested in Windass.

The 24-year-old attacking midfielder faces increased competition for places under Steven Gerrard and has caught the attention of a number of Premier League clubs.

West Ham have splashed the cash with over £90 million spent on seven players so far this summer.

Manuel Pellegrini is not done there, though, and told the press on Tuesday that he would be looking to improve his squad right up until the August 9th deadline, as reported by Sky Sports.

But if Pellegrini is seriously looking at Windass then he needs to reconsider as the former Accrington Stanley man is simply not good enough for the Hammers.

A total of 13 goals in 54 games for the Gers is hardly a ringing endorsement of his talents in what is deemed a far inferior standard in the Scottish Premiership.

In fact there is only one player plying his trade in Scottish football that West Ham should be looking at and that is Moussa Dembele at Rangers’ arch rivals Celtic.

Dembele has been linked with a move to East London since January and according to The Express West Ham have been ‘pushing hardest’ for the striker this summer.

The Hammers already have a superb array of attacking talent with the likes of Marko Arnautovic, Andriy Yarmolenko, Felipe Anderson and Javier Hernandez to name but a few.

What they do lack, though, is someone with the blistering pace Dembele possesses up front.

And Pellegrini’s money would be far better spent there even if the club has to take their summer spend close to the £120 million mark to land their man.
