Hammers boss David Moyes is desperate to bolster his attacking ranks at the London Stadium in the January transfer window.

West Ham are currently flying high in fifth spot in the Premier League table. Was are also in the last 16 of the Europa League and have a Carabao Cup quarter-final against Tottenham on Wednesday night to look forward to.

All things considered, David Moyes has done a superb job as Hammers manager. In order to take us to another level though, he absolutely must make a couple of first-class signings in January.

And the addition of a truly top quality centre-forward next month should be his absolute number one priority.

That’s according to Fichajes.

What an incredible signing this would be for West Ham.

The 21-year-old striker likes the idea of joining West Ham from Lille in the January transfer window according to a report from Calcio Mercato.

The Canadian attacker will be available for around £30 million next month (The Liverpool Echo).

Described by The Scouting App as a brilliant attacker with bundles of potential, the Lille ace has the kind of ability that would get the fans up off their seats.

David has already scored 18 goals in 24 games for his country and has bagged 14 goals in 25 matches for Lille so far this season (Transfermarkt).

The 21-year-old has a fine record of 64 goals and 20 assists in 156 career games for Lille and Gent combined (Transfermarkt).

He really is an unbelievable talent.

Let’s hope that Fichajes have nailed this one with their info. David would take us to another level entirely if Moyes does indeed manage to bring him to the London Stadium in January.
