According to a report from Claret and Hugh, West Ham could go back in for Bournemouth hitman Josh King in January.

Hammers boss David Moyes tried to bring the 28-year-old Cherries hitman to the London Stadium in the Summer (Sky Sports).

But King ended up staying on the south coast.

At the time, it was reported that West Ham were being asked to pay £18 million for the 51-capped Norway international (Sky Sports).

Claret and Hugh claims that the Hammers may well go back in for King in January. The insiders suggest that Moyes might be able to pick the 28-year-old up for a ‘heavily discounted price’.

The Bournemouth ace would be a very smart addition for West Ham.


The 28-year-old racked up six goals and four assists in 26 Premier League games last season (Who Scored).

In those outings, the Norway international averaged one shot, 1.2 key passes and two dribbles per game. He also won an average of 2.3 aerial duals per game (Who Scored).

King scored 16 goals in the 2016/17 Premier League season, and 12 in the 2018/19 campaign (Transfermarkt).

The 28-year-old is a proven Premier League goalscorer. The Cherries ace can play anywhere along the front-line and he is an incredibly hard worker. King would literally be the ideal January signing for West Ham.

And if we can pick him up for a bargain fee, bringing him to the London Stadium will be an absolute no brainer for David Moyes.
