David Moyes has a lot of pressing issues that need to be addressed at the London Stadium this summer.

The West Ham boss needs to sign a new centre-forward, a central midfielder and a top class centre-back.

The last thing we need at the moment is another winger. And that is why we need to stay well clear of the Atletico Madrid attacker.

The 31-year-old’s best years are already behind him.

David Moyes has repeatedly insisted that he wants to bring young, talented and hungry players to the London Stadium.

So a move to sign Vitolo quite simply wouldn’t make any sense whatsoever.

The winger was in distinctly average form last season. He has no goals and only one assist to his name in 15 appearances for Atletico Madrid (Transfermarkt).
