Hammers boss David Moyes is still on the hunt for a top-class centre-forward.
As things stand, however, the Scot appears to be nowhere near close to actually bringing anyone to the London Stadium.
It will be imperative that West Ham sign a new striker before the transfer window closes. We quite simply cannot afford to head into the new campaign with Michail Antonio as our only centre-forward.
West Ham eyeing Marcus Thuram?
Ex claims that the Hammers have been watching the Gladbach forward but as yet, no formal approach has been made.
West Ham really should make a concrete offer for the Frenchman. He really is an exceptional talent.
The 24-year-old has been described as a ‘sensational’ player by scouting, statistics and analytical website Total Football Analysis.
Thuram possesses blasting pace and can play anywhere along the front-line. He bagged 11 goals and 12 assists in 40 games for Gladbach last season (Transfermarkt).
He could be available for around €30 million (£25 million) according to Buli News.
That would represent an unreal bargain for West Ham. There really is no reason to hang around and wait.
