West Ham United reportedly now want to sign talented striker Terrem Moffi from Lorient in the January transfer window.

That’s according to a report from Sky Sports who claim that the Hammers could face competition for the 23-year-old centre-forward.

Moffi is an unreal talent. Think Michail Antonio but with blistering pace and incredible technical ability.

What a superb signing this would be for West Ham.

Moyes desperately needs to bolster his attacking ranks at the London Stadium this winter.

And Lorient hitman Moffi would be an exceptional addition to the Scot’s ranks in my opinion…

West Ham eyeing Moffi swoop in January

Sky Sports believe that the Hammers are ready to battle Southampton for the 23-year-old’s signature this winter.

Surely we are better placed to sign the Lorient ace than the Saints are…surely!

Moffi would take West Ham’s attacking play to a whole new level entirely.

He is absolutely rapid and is strong as an ox. He is generally a nuisance for opposing defenders and would offer a completely different option to Gianluca Scamacca through the middle, what with his power and pace.

He’s been on fire in Ligue 1 this season, with 10 goals in 16 games for Lorient to his name (Transfermarkt).

Score Nigeria reckon that he could be available for around €25 million this winter (£22 million).

That sounds like absolutely outstanding value to me.

And David Moyes must not hesitate to bring Terem Moffi to West Ham in the January transfer window in my view. Whether we are quick and efficient enough to beat Southampton to his signature remains to be seen though.
