West Ham eye up move for struggling Premier League striker in the hopes he can find his form once again.

In a window where money is such an issue for the majority of clubs, West Ham are going to have to take risks in some shape or form when signing players. They’ve already done so by bringing in Luis Guilherme who is a raw, inexperienced player with boundless potential.

However, according to football transfers, they could be about to take a different type of risk by signing a Premier League striker who has failed to match his previous form.

Dominic Calvert Lewin was once one of England’s highest rated strikers. For the first 5 seasons of his Premier League career, he improved year after year, achieving his best goal scoring campaign in the 2020/21 season.

Unfortunately, since then his career has been plagued with injuries, causing him to only score 7 goals combined across the next two seasons. While his injury record improved across the last campaign, his goal scoring record didn’t and he only managed to find the back of the net 7 times.

The 27-year-old could look to reignite his career by moving away from Everton (who could really do with all the finances they can get) and West Ham may give him that opportunity.

Understandably, fans will be extremely dubious about how often he gets injured as well as his mediocre campaign. While it is  absolutely valid to be sceptical about the potential signing, it’s worth noting just how much he improved over the last couple of months of the season. It could be that he wasn’t fully match sharp again after repeated injuries but managed to get there in the closing stages of the campaign. If this is the case, assuming he’s available for a good price, he could turn out to be an excellent signing for our Irons.
