West Ham United: Presenter drops concerning David Moyes claim

|

West Ham United presenter Gonzo has been speaking on the latest YouTube video from the Hammers Chat YouTube channel to discuss the upcoming January transfer window. 

The Hammers have been reportedly keen on finding themselves an additional striker in next month’s transfer market, with Michail Antonio currently the only senior striker at the club.

Do you expect a striker to arrive in January?

Yes

Yes

No

No

One of the strikers to be linked with David Moyes’ side is FC Basel’s Arthur Cabral, but it is also said he is attracting interest from other clubs such as Barcelona.

Speaking on Wednesday, Moyes had the following to say: “We have been looking to add to the forward players. We tried in the summer for a forward but there was nothing. Now we have to consider looking for a defender if possible.”

And with just a matter of weeks until the transfer window opens, Gonzo shared his concerns about what Moyes had to say in regards to how West Ham’s situation may have changed due to defensive injuries.

“I just feel he’s preparing us for the fact that he might not bring a striker in.

“I think he’s preparing us for bad news. But it might not be bad news, as I say, because David Moyes probably thinks we can score goals.”

TIF Thoughts on West Ham’s January plans…

Since the beginning of the campaign, we think the notion of West Ham not signing a striker in the summer may have become a distant memory given the start to the season Antonio made.

The Jamaican had netted four goals in his opening three league games, however, since then the 31-year-old has just two Premier League goals in his last 11 (via Transfermarkt).

There have been injury concerns over Antonio acting as the only striker in Moyes’ side, however, there is now also concern over his dip in form, which to us, is certainly a sign the Hammers should be looking to add in January, despite their injury issues elsewhere.
