Hopefully he won’t, but should David Moyes decide to do things on the cheap as far as strikers are concerned this summer he has more than a few options.
Several Premier League front men will be coming out of contract who we have little doubt will have created at least a passing interest from the manager and his head of recruitment Rob Newman.
Liverpool’s Divock Origi is one of them and he has often been linked with the club but our understanding is that the Hammers boss isn’t over keen on the 27 year old.
Arsenal duo A;exandre Lacazette, 30, and Eddie Nketiah, 22, are also coming out of contract along with 31 year old Danny Welbeck at Brighton who frankly represents a big no no.
Two midfielders – sorry to mention him again – but Jesse Lingard and the outstanding Christian Eriksen will be both be available and hopefully our manager will show some real interest in the latter.
