Hammers boss David Moyes is in desperate need of bolstering his centre-forward ranks at the London Stadium this summer.
The Scot will be hopeful of signing two strikers this summer. With funds tight in East London, however, he will have to be thrifty in his player recruitment.
West Ham have been linked with a whole host of strikers since January.
And now there is another name to add to the list.
West Ham eyeing Alexis Sanchez swoop
That’s according to Estadio Deportivo who claim that Hammers boss David Moyes is contemplating bringing the 133-capped Chile international back to the Premier League.
Sanchez, 32, has spent the last 18 months with Inter Milan after an incredibly unsuccessful spell with Manchester United.
The Chilean returned to somewhere near the form he showed whilst with Arsenal during his stint at Inter, racking up 11 goals and 18 assists in 70 games (Transfermarkt).
Sanchez will be 33 in December, however. We just cannot see Moyes signing the Chilean.
He has been so inconsistent over the past three or four years. And there is absolutely no way Moyes would consider bringing someone who has a reputation of being troublesome to the London Stadium this summer.
Squad morale at West Ham is at an all-time high. Why risk that by signing a washed up has-been on huge wages?
This one just doesn’t make any sense to us. We’re sure that the Hammers will be looking elsewhere this summer.
