West Ham are eyeing up a deal to sign Spartak Moscow attacker Jordan Larsson in January according to a report from Aftonbladet.
Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to bring a top-class forward to the London Stadium in January.
If West Ham are to push on for a top four finish, the addition of another striker to provide cover for Michail Antonio will be an absolute necessity.
The Hammers have been linked with at least 40 strikers since Sebastien Haller left for Ajax in January.
Incredibly, however, we are still yet to find a replacement for the Ivorian.
West Ham eyeing deal to sign Jordan Larsson
Aftonbladet reckon that Moyes wants to bring the Sweden international – son of Henrik, to East London.
Spartak Moscow allegedly want around £8 million for the 24-year-old forward.
Here’s a glimpse of what Larsson is capable of:
And we think Larsson would be a superb addition for the Hammers.
The Swede racked up 15 goals and five assists in 29 league games for Spartak Moscow last season (Transfermarkt).
Larsson has pace and dynamism in abundance. He is a tireless worker and is not afraid of running the channels to help create more space for his teammates.
Moyes absolutely adores this trait in a striker.
The 24-year-old can play anywhere along the front-line and for just £8 million, signing him seems like an absolute no-brainer for West Ham.
The Hammers won’t have things all their own way, however, with AC Milan, Fiorentina and Napoli also interested in acquiring his services.
