Tim Steidten is not going to get hung up on targets if a deal is not reached quickly.

Nothing is more irritating to football fans than a club chasing one player for a whole window, preventing them from signing other targets just to end up not bringing them in at all. Unfortunately, this is something that has happened far too often at West Ham.

Thankfully, this seems to be coming to an end with Tim Steidten in control of transfers. The German has already shown how willing he is to move on to other targets by ditching Wesley Gassova after Corinthians’ demands almost doubled.

When it comes to signing a striker, despite needing to get the recruitment spot on, Steidten is apparently going to keep the exact same approach, according to Dean Jones. Additionally, while he believes that the Hammers are interested in both En-Nesyri and Guirassy, he doesn’t think they’re interested in Awoniyi like others have suggested.

“He’s being linked with West Ham, but I don’t think that is on the cards from checks that I have made around it,” he told GIVEMESPORT.

“Obviously, West Ham do want a new forward, and they are considering a variety of different elements when it comes to finding the right man, but I just get the impression there are other candidates that seem more likely than Awoniyi. I think En-Nesyri and Guirassy are two of the top targets, and they would move onto others if they prove not to be possible or if Steidten decides the terms of a deal are not suitable.”
