West Ham reportedly now looking to expedite striker signing from Premier League giants

West Ham United are speeding up our pursuit of a truly top-class striker ahead of the January transfer window.

David Moyes is thought to be desperately on the hunt to bring a a new striker to West Ham in January, following the injury suffered by Michail Antonio – one that could keep him out for anywhere between 3-12 weeks.

The January transfer window will obviously be a vitally important one for the Hammers, and Moyes must make sure that he gets his transfer business absolutely spot on.

With Michail Antonio out injured, and concerns about Jarrod Bowen, West Ham will have to muddle through until January, and then Moyes has to act.

He has to sign a proven striker but more importantly – someone who fits into his system.

It seems as though the Scot has someone specific in mind…

Striker signing on the cards for West Ham in January

According to a report from TEAMtalk, the Hammers are lining up a move to sign Armando Broja from Chelsea – someone who we have been linked heavily with on numerous occasions recently.


The Albania international is absolutely ideally suited to West Ham’s system, I think he’d be perfect for us.

The Chelsea striker is always willing to run the channels, is very strong when playing with his back to goal and is incredibly hard to dispossess. He is a pretty good finisher as well when presented with a goalscoring opportunity.

It’s like someone has saw Moyes’s system and decided to build a striker in a laboratory to fit perfectly into it.

Chelsea want around £30 million for Broja, and that would represent excellent value for the Hammers in my opinion.

The bottom line is that West Ham need to sign a striker in January, and the Chelsea man should absolutely be our number one target.
