Elliot Lee (CF)
Elliot Lee could be the most effective newcomer, meaning a new forward signing is not integral. Short and quick, Elliot possesses all the key attributes for a goalscoring centre forward, and could play a pivotal role for the Hammers in front of goal this term.
With experienced stars already occupying the forward roles at Upton Park, now is the right time to bring through a young player of Elliot Lee’s capabilities. Working alongside the likes of Mauro Zarate, Enner Valencia and Carlton Cole, as well as one of England’s most successful strikers, Teddy Sheringham, this could be Elliot’s greatest opportunity on the big stage.
So, In my opinion, a new striker may not be needed after all. Lee has the ability and is comfortable around the first team, and will not need time to get to know his teammates like a new signing would. Instead he can jump straight into the first team spotlight.
