Speaking recently on the U Irons podcast, Roshane Thomas said there was a 60% chance that West Ham United sign a centre-forward in the January transfer window.
Following an impressive start to their 2020/21 Premier League campaign, which has seen victories against the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leicester City, Aston Villa and Everton, amongst others, West Ham currently sit in 10th place in the Premier League table, just three points behind the Champions League places.
However, following the injury picked up by Michail Antonio, David Moyes has been left with only Sebastien Haller in his first-team squad as an out and out striker. And, with just three goals over his 16 Premier League appearances so far this season, it is fair to say the Frenchman is not enjoying the best form of his life.
As such, speaking on a recent episode of the U Irons podcast, Thomas discusses the chances of Moyes entering the January market with the aim of bringing in a new face up front, which the journalist predicted was around 60% likely.
He said: “I reckon it’s about 60%, in terms of getting a striker in. It’s all dependent on the right player becoming available. We need something for right now. So yeah, around a 60% chance that West Ham will look to bring another striker in.”
Do West Ham need to sign a new striker?
TIF Thoughts on Roshane Thomas’ comments regarding West Ham signing a striker…
So, while the journalist does not particularly let on as to who the club could potentially look to bring in this January, he does state that there are better odds than the toss of a coin that a new centre-forward will be arriving at the London Stadium.
And, should West Ham wish to maintain their lofty league position, in our opinion, they would be very wise to do so.
