David Moyes is searching high and wide for centre-forward reinforcements this summer.

The East London outfit have been linked with big money moves for the likes of Tammy Abraham (Evening Standard), Youssef En-Nesyri (Daily Star (June 20th, page 43) and Ivan Toney (Claret and Hugh).

All of those names will cost well in excess of £30 million, however, probably closer to £40 million.

With money tight at the London Stadium, Moyes will have to be thrifty in his player recruitment. And splashing out £30-40 million on one player just wouldn’t make much sense fiscally.

And with that in mind, the Hammers should be prioritising moves to sign Blackburn Rovers striker Adam Armstrong and Orlando City hitman Daryl Dike.

David Moyes has been linked with moves to sign Armstrong and Dike extensively this summer already (The Daily Mail and TEAMtalk).

And the Englishman and the American are absolutely perfect for the Hammers.

The Blackburn striker could be available for as little as £8 million this summer (The Daily Mail).

The 24-year-old is incredibly mobile, possesses blistering pace and works his socks off each and every time he takes to the pitch.

The Rovers ace racked up an incredible 28 goals in 40 league games. He finished the season behind only Brentford striker Ivan Toney in the Championship goalscoring charts (Transfermarkt).

Meanwhile, Dike could cost around £18 million this summer (TEAMtalk).

The 21-year-old is still incredibly raw. He has all of the basic ingredients needed to succeed at the very highest level, however.

Dike is big and strong and has all of the characteristics Moyes looks for in a centre-forward.

The Blackburn and Orlando strikers could also play alongside one another considering how different their respective playing styles are.

The two strikers allegedly could be picked up for a combined fee of £26 million. That seems like incredible value to us. And West Ham should not hesitate to get these two signings wrapped up before the start of the new season.
