David Moyes absolutely must bring a top class striker to the London Stadium this summer.

In fact, West Ham need to sign two! Beggars can’t be choosers, however.

So we will probably have to settle for one big money signing accompanied by a free transfer or a loan deal.

West Ham still in Patson Daka hunt

Football journalist Ekrem Konur has claimed that RB Leipzig are chasing the 22-year-old centre-forward but the Hammers have yet to give up the ghost in the race to sign him:

What an incredible signing Daka would be for West Ham.

 

The 22-year-old has racked up a stunning 34 goals and 12 assists in 41 games for RB Salzburg so far this season (Transfermarkt).

He has been described as an ‘exceptional goal machine’ by well-renowned statistical analysis website Who Scored.

Daka could be available for just £17 million this summer according to Salzburger Nachrichten. That would be truly sensational business for the Hammers.

Whether the West Ham owners adequately back David Moyes in the transfer market, however, remains to be seen.
