Hammers cunning plan to stop striker who can’t stop scoring against the Irons 

One of the more intriguing rumours circulating in this transfer window involves a striker who holds a familiar place in the minds of West Ham fans.

Reports suggest that West Ham United may shift their focus to Newcastle United’s Callum Wilson, who is reportedly available at a reasonable price this January.

The Hammers have been actively searching for a new striker during this winter transfer window, and Wilson has emerged as a potential alternative to Chelsea’s Armando Broja. The latter comes with a hefty asking price, rumoured to be around £35 million.

It remains uncertain whether West Ham would be willing to take a chance on the injury-prone Wilson. However, acquiring him could be a strategic move to ensure he doesn’t score against them. Some speculate that this speculation might be linked to the Hammers’ association with agent Will Salthouse, who represents Wilson. It’s also worth noting that Wilson is nothing like Broja and not particularly well suited to David Moyes‘ style of football.

According to a report from Sports Witness, Wilson’s potential cost is projected to be half of Broja’s, making it a consideration that West Ham might find appealing.

While David Moyes’ team has shown strong performances at times this season, consistency has been a challenge. Adding a proven finisher like Wilson to their squad could significantly bolster their attacking prowess. However, scepticism lingers about the credibility of this particular transfer rumour which may have a risen from the fact that his agent has Will Salthose has regularly provided tlayers  to the Hammers.
