West Ham are reportedly interested in signing Dominic Solanke in January as David Moyes targets a frontman for his forward line.
Having sold Gianluca Scimacca after his move to East London didn’t work out, Moyes wants a new frontman having failed to sign a frontman in the summer.
The club has relied heavily once again on Michail Antonio who has struggled to find consistent form this season and the struggles have shown.
Now, according to The Sun, the Hammers will look to return to one-time England forward Solanke who has scored six goals in 12 games in the Premier League this season, one of which was against West Ham on the opening day.
Solanke still has three years left on his contract on the south coast which will make any move a costly one, especially so in the January window.
The Cherries signed Solanke from Liverpool for £19m with the former Chelsea man seemingly now fulfilling his potential having struggled in the top flight before this season.
A heavy reliance on Jarrod Bowen is unsustainable and with Danny Ings and Divin Mubama the only outright strikers at the club, Moyes will be hoping to add England forward.
A move to West Ham could interest Solanke who will want to thrive in Europe and take advantage of West Ham’s ambition to move up the table.
Solanke isn’t the only forward on the list of targets for Moyes with Santi Gimenez of Feyenoord also being looked at. The Mexican has scored 15 goals in 15 games for Feyenoord and will no doubt interest clubs throughout Europe if his form continues.
The Hammers have invested heavily in their attack, with Mohammed Kudus arriving from Ajax in the summer. Bowen has operated as a no. 9 at times with that unsuitable for the winger who has been exceptional this season in East London.
