Hammers boss David Moyes has been linked with moves to sign Ilicic (Ghana Soccer Net) and Gosens (Tutto Mercato Web).

The Scot will undoubtedly be looking to bolster his ranks at the London Stadium in January.

And Ilicic and Gosens would be decent additions.

Ilicic, 32, is a central midfielder by trade, but he can play in a variety of different positions. The Slovenia international has recently been utilised as a forward for Atalanta.

Gosens, meanwhile is an attacking left-back. The 26-year-old German racked up a mightily impressive 10 goals and eight assists for Atalanta last season and has already recorded two goals and two assists this term (Transfermarkt).

Both players proved their mettle against Liverpool last night. And they would be very wise additions for West Ham in January.

The Atalanta duo both took their goals very well. Their all around performances were top class. And being part of a team that beat Liverpool at Anfield says a lot about them as players.

They proved that they are good enough to mix it with the Premier League’s best players.

Whether West Ham will make a move for either in January, however, remains to be seen.
