Michail Antonio has been in woeful form over the past month or so. And his struggles have come at the worst possible time what with so many games coming thick and fast.

If Moyes manages to sign Jonathan David though, our season will surely get back on track immediately.

The 21-year-old is an absolutely sensational talent and his arrival would lift the mood at the London Stadium immediately.

The Canadian attacker will be available for around £30 million next month (The Liverpool Echo).

Described by The Scouting App as a brilliant attacker with bundles of potential, the Lille ace has the kind of ability that makes him ideally suited to the intense and ferociously paced Premier League.

David has already scored 18 goals in 24 games for his country and has bagged 14 goals in 25 matches for Lille so far this season (Transfermarkt).

The 21-year-old has a fine record of 64 goals and 20 assists in 156 career games for Lille and Gent combined (Transfermarkt).

He is an elite player in the making. It may well be tough for West Ham to sign the Canadian in January but all we can hope is that the owners do everything they can to make it happen.
