David Moyes provides a troubling update on the chase of the West Ham forward

David Moyes provides a troubling update on the chase of the West Ham forward

West Ham’s need for depth

West Ham had a sensational 2020/21 campaign that saw the final 6th and get a place in the group stage of the Europa League this season.

With European soccer, however, comes a host of more games that the Hammers need to navigate.

And since they have a fairly small team that lacks a lot of quality depth, fans were certainly expecting their team to be quite active on the market this summer.

However, aside from loaning Alphonse Areola and potentially adding Kurt Zouma, West Ham hasn’t added much to their squad this summer.

One area that needs addressing before the window closes is the center forward.

Michail Antonio is a great option and he’s off to a solid start in 2021/22. But he is very prone to injury and it seems highly unlikely that he will be able to play every league and cup game for West Ham this season.

Moyes striker update

So West Ham obviously need a new striker this summer. And they have been linked to a few, including Gaetan Laborde and Alassane Plea.

However, David Moyes’ recent update on the search for West Ham forwards suggests that there is a real possibility that the window will close without them bringing another number 9.

The Scotsman declared that he is desperate to sign a forward, but those who have offered him cost too much or are not available:

“I am really desperate to sign a forward, but from what we can achieve and what they have offered us, at the moment I am not achieving it.

“Either the cost is too much or they are not available. I hope we find someone, but I certainly have no guarantees, that’s for sure. “

Moyes added that there is a good chance that he will not sign a center forward:

“There is a very good chance that we won’t sign a center forward, a very good chance that we won’t get one.

“That is a fact and I have been saying it the whole time. The quality of the central forwards is required to enter. So there is a good chance that we won’t get any, but we could try to find a way to get more goals for the team from other positions like, for example, Said. [Benrahma] to achieve goals and we have [Jarrod] Bowen to those goals already gets the goals.

“They are not absolute numbers of nines, so we can see if we can do that from other areas as well.”
