Ex reveals Hammers striker target


West Ham’s recruitment team swung into action the minute the winter window closed and are now weighing up and watching players across Britain and Europe.

Like every club the process never stops but sadly leads to misinformation about which players may be serious targets.

However, the Moyes recruitment team – also being overseen by technical director Tim Steidten – are hard at work with according to ExWHUEmployee.

Ex believes a striker is the main position which needs filling as with Mike Antonio now 33 and Danny Ings hardly pulling up trees, the club is in big need of a younger option.

And he claims on his West Ham Way website that the big target is  VfB Stuggart striker Serhou Guirassy (left), with the Guinea international recording 10 goals in the opening six Bundesliga matches played so far.

PSG’s Hugo Ekitiké is also very much on the minds of the club allegedly and has been for some time according to the ITK.
