It seems as though Castellanos would be the ideal January signing for West Ham. The Argentinian striker could be available for around £15 million in January (Manchester Evening News).

West Ham handed boost as striker search continues

We think that the 23-year-old New York City striker would be a very useful addition to Moyes’s ranks at the London Stadium.

And it seems as though a January transfer could very well be on.

Castellanos sat down and spoke to TYC Sports and admitted that his next step will be away from the MLS:

“I think I have already completed a cycle here in the league. I want to grow. I pay more attention to sports than economics. I had multi-million dollar offers from different places but I’m not interested. To play in Europe would be to fulfil a dream.”

It seems fairly obvious that the 23-year-old is keen to take the next step in his career by moving to Europe.

The Premier League is widely recognised at the best and most competitive league in world football.

So there is every chance that Castellanos would love to move to England.
