Only six points off the bottom of the table, West Ham United fans were treated to another underwhelming game at their new London Stadium home on Saturday.

Drawing 1-1 to Stoke City in a game that Slaven Bilic would have definitely classed as winnable prior to kick-off, the Hammers are still waiting for lift off this term.

When many thought the Hammers’ rousing 2-1 EFL Cup victory over Chelsea was the spark for their season to ignite, it’s proved to be a false dawn with West Ham United struggling to play with any rhythm right now.

Struggling for multiple reasons, something that hasn’t helped has been the poor integration of the club’s summer signings, of which looked talented on paper over the summer.

The likes of Gokhan Tore, Sofiane Feghouli, Simone Zaza, Jonathan Calleri and Havard Nordtveit have really struggled while in other cases, the likes of Andre Ayew have been downright unlucky with injury interrupting the start of his Hammers career.

When any team is struggling near the foot of the table, January is looked upon as a month in which new signings can spark fresh impetus into the team.

With this in mind, This Is Futbol have devised a list of FIVE players who West Ham United should target in the New Year.
