RMC Sport have reported that West Ham boss David Moyes wants to sign the 24-year-old French striker to replace Haller.

The Athletic then claimed that the former Celtic man is unlikely to move to West Ham, however, as he is not keen on joining the east London outfit.

Hammers insider ExWHUemployee backed those claims up by suggesting that it is unlikely that West Ham will bring Moussa Dembele to the London Stadium this month.

It would be no surprise if we were indeed in for the former Celtic ace, however.

Whatever happens, West Ham need a new striker this month. It really is a matter of urgency now. Sebastien Haller has left for Ajax and we are incredibly light in the centre-forward department.

In an ideal world we would sign two. That probably won’t happen, however.

Moussa Dembele would be a great addition for the Hammers.

The 24-year-old has a very good record for Lyon with 45 goals and 13 assists to his name in 108 games for the Ligue 1 outfit (Transfermarkt).

He could be available for around £30 million this month (talkSPORT).

That will most probably be well out of our budget, however.

Nevertheless, some West Ham fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the links with Moussa Dembele:
