West Ham United have been presented with a dream opportunity to sign a striker who ticks all the boxes, according to a report from AS

The East London club is actively searching for a solution to their striker problems, and 28-year-old Norwegian forward Alexander Sorloth has emerged as a potential target.

Sorloth enjoyed a blistering season with Villarreal last year, finding the net 26 times and contributing six assists in just 41 appearances.

Previously valued at around £32 million, reports now suggest Villarreal might be willing to sell Sorloth for a steal at just £25 million. This price tag could be very attractive to West Ham.

Standing at 6ft 5in, Sorloth boasts all the desired qualities: aerial dominance, pace to exploit channels, and a clinical finishing touch.

On paper, Sorloth appears to be the perfect striker for West Ham’s new manager Julen Lopetegui and his tactical philosophy.

However, this chance to acquire a proven goal scorer at a potentially discounted price shouldn’t be missed by West Ham. If they act quickly, they could land the ideal striker to spearhead their attack under Lopetegui.

    I’ve never see west ham act quickly ever when it comes to transfers. 100% no chance. Would love to be proved wrong

      Let’s hope they have learned the lesson of the past and get it done but it wouldn’t surprise me if we miss out it’s time to cut the chat and bring in the players we need and kick out the dead wood

  • Wiggy says:

    It was £38m on this site yesterday so you have no idea on price then I take it?

  • Kevlar says:

    I think we should buy mousse dembele from nice for £20 m first he’s a French international and in the last year of his contract? I can’t understand why we aren’t all over this one? He’s young and energetic and scores goals as well.Sorloth for £25m I would leave it he will be 29 years this year with no resale !!!

  • Jimbo says:

    Dream striker? 16 games and 1 goal in PL for Palace before they let him go. That’s Ings percentages. Hope we pass and find one younger and quicker.

  • Alan says:

    Strange headline. Isn’t this C&H’s third or fourth piece about Sorloth? This is hardly breaking news or an exciting new target not previously mentioned.

    Clickbait Simon at it again.

  • Jason Dunlop says:

    Just a continuous conveyor belt of utter crap! Will you please just STOP!

    • C brooking says:

      Why oh why do you bother reading or visiting this site if you hate it so much ??? Had enough of all the haters out there .. if you don’t like it read something else. As West Ham supporters we read it out of interest not assuming it’s all true just the chaos reporting what they gather from all sources .. give them a break and move on if so outraged !!!

  • Iron57 says:

    Hardly a dream signing. He’s just had his best ever season following a string on underwhelming ones… including abject failure at Crystal Palace. Overpriced and a risky buy.

  • Bonzo says:

    Only scored one goal during the two years he was at Crystal Palace. That’s got to be a concern surely.
