West Ham’s hunt for a striker could see them come back in for a long-term target who’s struggled to impress over the last season.

More than most clubs, West Ham have a habit of tracking players over multiple years. Sometimes they just hold interest, sometimes they attempt to sign the player but it’s not all that often they end up securing their signature.

However, the East London outfit may be looking to change that this Summer as, according to chroniclelive, the Hammers are keen on signing Callum Wilson.

Our Irons have kept an eye on the Englishman since his Bournemouth days, and they could look to sign him as either their main striker or as a backup.

At 32-years-old, his every present injury issues still haunt him and he only managed to play 20 games in the Premier League last season, although his goal scoring record was decent, scoring nearly 1 every other game.

In all honesty, it’s a bit disheartening hearing the club be linked with these sorts of players. Getting rid of Moyes and putting Tim Steidten in charge of transfers was meant to see the club take a step forward, but this would feel like a massive leap backwards. He’s old, injury prone and his wages just would not represent any sort of value for money.
