3. Jonathan Ikone
Moyes is prioritising the signing of a top-class centre-forward to provide competition and cover for Michail Antonio. The 23-year-old Lille attacker Jonathan Ikone is on the Hammers’ radar according to a report from Calciomercato.
Ikone can play as a second striker, on either wing or even as an auxiliary centre-forward. He is out of contract with Lille in the summer of 2023, so he could be available for as little as £21 million in January.
2. Jack Hendry
The Hammers have Club Brugge centre-back, Jack Hendry, on their radar. Hendry, 26, has really impressed with the Belgian outfit. Hendry is pretty good with the ball at his feet as well. He has also won an average of three aerial duels per match.
Moyes believes that Hendry is someone who would strengthen them considerably. Quite how much Brugges could demand for Hendry remains to be seen.
1. Jesse Lingard
A rather obvious target following his highly successful loan spell at the London Stadium in the second-half of last season is Jesse Lingard.
Lingard is unlikely to sign a new contract with Manchester United, who will look to sell him in January to recoup some form of fee. The much-maligned Jesse Lingard is a 10/1 chance with Betfair to join West Ham.
West Ham were linked with a move for the Englishman in January, but United’s demands proved to be too high, something that will not be a problem after Kretinsky’s investment.
