West Ham seek urgent Antonio replacement

The Daily Mirror has highlighted a renewed interest from West Ham in Bournemouth’s Dominic Solanke. The article has specified that Hammers manager David Moyes is actively pursuing the player.

However, this contradicts information provided to Claret and Hugh by its primary source, which indicates that Tim Steidten will be responsible for player recruitment. The outcome of West Ham’s interest in Solanke may ultimately reveal who wields the true authority at the club.

In another development, Michail Antonio sustained an injury during Jamaica’s match against Canada yesterday. While the injury is believed to be a hamstring issue, West Ham’s club doctors have not officially confirmed the diagnosis.

Solanke may be an urgent Antonio replacement for West Ham

Solanke showcased an impressive performance in West Ham’s first game of the season against Bournemouth, fitting well into David Moyes’ system. Whether The Hammers will proceed to make a bid remains uncertain.

The Cherries striker was signed in a £19m deal from Liverpool some years ago. However, it seems only this season that he’s finally come close to his undoubted potential.

With the out of form Danny Ings and seemingly unfancied Divin Mubama as West Ham’s only outright strikers. The Hammers can ill afford to rely on Jarrod Bowen so recruiting a new striker will be deemed urgent.
