West Ham may make a move for a top Premier League striker if David Moyes leaves, according to reports.

Despite having him firing on all cylinders at the start of his second stint in East London, David Moyes has been unfortunate in having to use a depleted Michail Antonio over the past two seasons. For whatever reason, he has been out of form for a large amount of time and, even though he has been playing brilliantly as of late, he is rarely able to play a full 90 minutes.

West Ham have tried to replace him on a number of occasions, but the likes of Danny Ings, Sebastian Haller and Gianluca Scamacca have failed to impress in claret and blue. Thankfully, they seem set on ending this streak of unsuccessful strikers by signing someone who is Premier League proven.

While the likes of Ivan Toney have been linked with a move to East London, Alex Crook claims that it is Dominic Solanke who could be joining the Hammers. Strangely though, he believes it could Moyes’ departure that sparks this.

West Ham were interested in acquiring his services last Summer but nothing ever materialised due to Bournemouth’s high asking price; it looks like a bargain now. The Englishman has scored 18 Premier League goals this season and has been a handful for defenders. In fairness, his goal scoring record prior to this season certainly didn’t warrant the asking price, but you can only imagine where the club would be if they did push ahead with him.

Our Irons are in a brilliant place financially and, with player sales seeming almost certain, it could be the opportunity to rebuild by bringing in some highly rated players.
