As the new year and next transfer window fast approaches, ExWHUEmployee has provided an update on the clubs current activities.

Despite having a strong start to the season, our momentum has significantly dipped in recent weeks, with pressure on the club to turn the situation around – adding more significance somewhat for the club to look to strengthen the squad in January.

Reporting on The West Ham Way Podcast, our co-cost and club insider ExWHUEmployee provided an update on the current situation behind the scenes, with the club keeping close tabs on a few players.

Victor Boniface

Boniface is a highly rated 22-year old Nigerian international striker who has been in stunning form for Bayer Leverkusen so far this season, with 11 goals already in 15 appearances for the German side.

The fact this is the former club of Technical Director Tim Steidten, could give West Ham an edge on others who are also keen on the 6ft 3in forward, with Chelsea also rumoured to be interested.

Akor Adams

Fellow Nigerian striker Adams of Montpellier is hitman the club have scouted and are understand to be very interested in.

Like Boniface, the 23 year-old Adams is in blistering form this season, with 7 goals in 10 games thus far, and Ex has reported as one to keep an eye on.

Leny Yoro

The very highly-rated Yoro of Lille, who is only just 17, is a player Tim Steidten and his team have scouted and admire. However, it must be stressed that the defensive midfielder is highly sought after, with the likes of Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester United all keen.

Should West Ham look to make a move, it will be hoped that Steidten can convince the player than a move to east London is the best move for his development.
