West Ham United opted towards signing a striker within the January switch window.
The Hammers did dip into the market, signing the younger defender Frederik Alves on a everlasting deal and bringing in Jesse Lingard on mortgage from Manchester United.
Nevertheless, the exit of Sebastien Haller to Ajax appeared to depart the membership crying out for a senior centre-forward to ease the burden on Michail Antonio.
They determined towards shopping for a striker, although, and that has left the 30-year-old as the one striker on the membership.
He was substituted after 74 minutes towards Fulham on the weekend and he’s set to be assessed because the Irons search to find whether or not or not he’s injured.
And supervisor David Moyes has now confirmed that he did have the choice of spending between £15m and £20m to exchange Haller, however merely selected to not.
Quoted by Goal, he stated: “It has been properly documented that we don’t have a number of different choices.
“We’re properly conscious of that and we selected to do it. I didn’t need to waste £15-20million on one thing I wasn’t certain about in order that was the choice I selected to take.”
GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…
This seems like an error.
The Irons are having fun with a wonderful season and presently sit sixth within the Premier League desk, only one level behind champions Liverpool in fourth.
Thus, to depend on iffy hamstrings of Antonio is to play with hearth.
He merely can’t be trusted to remain match.
Moyes ought to have gambled within the switch window, that he hasn’t may smash their European ambitions.
