West Ham United are looking to add firepower to their attack for the upcoming season, and their search has led them to Norwegian striker Jorgen Strand Larsen, currently with Celta Vigo in La Liga.

Reports from Spain indicate that West Ham has officially submitted an enquiry to Celta Vigo regarding the availability of the 24-year-old forward.

Strand Larsen’s time at Celta Vigo has been a mixed bag. While he managed a respectable 13 goals and 3 assists in 37 La Liga appearances last season, his overall performance has been viewed as inconsistent.

The Hammers are actively looking to bolster their attacking options, and Strand Larsen fits the profile they’re seeking.Danny Ings and Michail Antonio are on the wrong side of 30, with the former failing to make his mark at the London Stadium. On the other hand, the old war horse,Antonio is in the twilight of his career and no longer fit to be the first-choice striker. So, it behoves West Ham to sign a young striker in the summer transfer window.

West Ham might not be the only club interested in Strand Larsen’s services. Other clubs could potentially enter the race for the Norwegian striker, making it a competitive transfer battle.

It remains to be seen if West Ham’s initial enquiry will develop into a formal offer for Strand Larsen. However, their interest highlights the club’s clear desire to bring in a young striker for the upcoming season, aiming to solidify their attacking force.
