West Ham insider shares hugely concerning update on summer striker hunt as David Moyes encounters big problem

David Moyes is allegedly struggling to find value in his hunt to bring a top-class striker to West Ham United this summer.

That’s according to high-level insiders Claret and Hugh who claim that Moyes is desperate to bring an elite striker to the London Stadium before the start of next season.

There is a very big problem though…

Michail Antonio is currently the only centre-forward option that Moyes has at his disposal at West Ham.

The 32-year-old has been the only striker at the London Stadium since January 2021. And he isn’t even a recognised centre-forward! That just isn’t good enough for a club with supposed aspirations of challenging for honours both home and abroad.

Moyes is obviously trying his best to change all of that in time for next season. There could be trouble ahead for the Hammers though…

Moyes finding it difficult to find striker value this summer

Claret and Hugh reckon that the West Ham manager is concerned about the cost of potential new signings.

As a result, Chelsea striker Armando Broja is proving to be an appealing option for the Scot and is thought to be valued at around £25 million.

We just can’t see why Chelsea would sell him for that amount and would be shocked if he left Stamford Bridge for anything less than £40 million, especially with so much interest in his services from other Premier League clubs.

Signing an elite striker will be so important for West Ham this summer.

It is hugely concerning that the Hammers manager is struggling to find value for money at the moment. Why is he even shopping around for bargains?

He needs to go out and pay whatever price is needed to sign a high quality centre-forward. We’re not naive. Moyes is obviously not the only person to blame here.

If he really is hunting bargains then that’s because of the fact that he is being handcuffed financially. The proof will be in the pudding when the transfer window closes in three month’s time. Let’s just hopes that Moyes is able to bring in the striker he wants this summer.
