Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to bring a new striker to the London Stadium.

The Scot may well be on the look-out for another attacking midfielder as well with Said Benrahma set to head off to the Africa Cup of Nations with Algeria in the new year.

West Ham may well have more lavish funds to play with now as well after the recent investment from Czech billionaire Daniel Kretinsky.

And it seems as though Moyes already has his eye on a couple of attacking targets ahead of the January transfer window.

West Ham eyeing attacking double swoop in January

The Hammers are allegedly targeting a double swoop for Hellas Verona attacking midfielder Antonin Barak and Cagliari owned striker Giovanni Simeone according to a report from Tutto Hellas Verona.

Simeone would be a very shrewd signing for West Ham.

The 26-year-old is currently on loan with Hellas Verona and he has been absolutely on fire this season.

Simeone has bagged nine goals and three assists in just 11 Serie A games so far this term (Transfermarkt).

More than one goal involvement per game on average really is some going. He is a very hard working forward and his playing style is quintessentially South American what with his work-rate, desire and tenacity.

He is valued at around £10 million according to The Express.

Meanwhile, Barak wouldn’t be the most exciting of additions for West Ham.

The 26-year-old racked up seven goals and three assists in 34 games for Hellas Verona last season and has four goals and one assist to his name in 12 games this term (Transfermarkt).

The Czech attacking midfielder wouldn’t really offer us anything that we don’t already possess.

Tutto Hellas Verona claims that it will cost around £21 million to prise Barak away from Hellas Verona in January.

Moyes would be far better served by signing Jesse Lingard.

Having said that, if the Scot does decide to bring Barak to West Ham, we’ll get behind him, just like every other signing he’s made.
