West Ham are reportedly debating whether to take a risk on Turkish wonder-kid in the hopes that he will be the answer to their striker woes.

At this point, it is absolutely clear that Danny Ings is never going to work out at West Ham. Admittedly, that has been the case for quite a while now and that is not any fault of his own – the Englishman is just not the sort of striker that fits in David Moyes’ system. Fortunately, it looks like the Hammers are determined to sign a striker this January with the likes of Armado Broja, Serhou Guirassy and Hugo Ekitike all being monitored by the club.

However, according to Turkish Football, it could be a youngster that you have likely never heard of who could be the Irons next No.9.

Semih Kilicsoy is an 18 year old Turkish striker who has taken the Super Lig by storm this season. In just 8 league games he has scored 5 goals and assisted a further 2, with 4 of those goals coming in his last 3 games for Besiktas.

Unsurprisingly, this immense form has led to him being tipped to be called up for his national team, and he has a real chance of going to the Euros this Summer. He could be the player that has an excellent tournament out of nowhere, resulting in a big move. If West Ham take the risk on him now, they could get ahead of the competition. Given his club’s financial situation, it is unlikely that he would be too expensive as well. 

Signing such a raw, inexperienced youngster as a Premier League club pushing for Europe is certainly a risky move, but if he is scoring like this at the age of 18 who knows what he will be able to achieve. Depending on how much the asking price is, it could be well worth taking a chance on Kilicsoy. West Ham have tried signing big names, is it time to take a leap into the unknown?
