Hammers boss David Moyes will have one main priority in January and next summer – signing a centre-forward.

The Scot needs to add some proper competition and cover for Michail Antonio at the London Stadium.

The West Ham manager has repeatedly suggested that he will only sign someone who possesses similar attributes to Michail Antonio.

One man consistently linked with a move to the London Stadium is Andrea Belotti (The Daily Star, Torino Granata and Fabrizio Romano).

Now, the Torino hitman should be the perfect man for the job. And the latest news regarding the 27-year-old striker is a really big boost for the Hammers.

West Ham handed Andrea Belotti boost as Fabrizio Romano makes claim

The Italy international will leave Torino on a free transfer in the summer according to Romano:

West Ham have to get on with it and agree a pre-contract agreement with him in January.

Belotti is absolutely perfect for us.

The 27-year-old has great movement and is accomplished at leading the line on his own. He is strong as an ox and has an impressive goalscoring record with 151 goals his name in 370 career games (Transfermarkt).

The Torino ace would be a magnificent addition to David Moyes’ ranks at the London Stadium.

Signing him really does seem like an absolute no-brainer for the Hammers.

The fact that his own manager said he will definitely be leaving should be all the incentive West Ham need to make their move.

The thought of having Andrea Belotti and Michail Antonio as a strike force is an exciting prospect indeed.

And it shouldn’t actually be that hard to make happen after Romano’s latest update.

The only problem will be the amount of competition that we may face for his signature.
