West Ham to sign 14 goal/assist winger in the January transfer window

West Ham United are eyeing up a move to sign a talented young winger in the January transfer window


David Moyes is clearly keen to get some attacking reinforcements through the door at West Ham before the January transfer window slams shut. The Hammers boss is currently without Mohammed Kudus, Jarrod Bowen, Lucas Paqueta and Michail Antonio. Unfortunately for us, that could be the case for a while, and Sunderland star Jack Clarke appears to be someone who Moyes really wants to sign, with the Black Cats demanding £20 million for the 23-year-old. Now it seems like West Ham are ramping up our pursuit of the former Tottenham Hotspur and Leeds United attacker.

That’s because we have apparently now made the first approach to Sunderland to prise him away from the Stadium of Light… However, Moyes faces one big problem – Sheffield United, Crystal Palace and Brentford are in the race for Clarke’s signature as well. Listen, Clarke is a very decent player, and he could well go on to become an elite player. I’m just not sure that he has what it takes to come into West Ham and hit the ground running immediately this month. He flattered to deceive for Sunderland in the FA Cup against Newcastle on Saturday, and maybe that was evidence that he’s not quite ready to mix it with the big boys just yet.Or perhaps it was just an off day for the winger. The 23-year-old has really impressed with Sunderland this season, bagging 12 goals and two assists in just 26 Championship games (Transfermarkt).

Thus, it is evident that he can score and create goals. When the ball is at his feet, the Black Cats ace is incredibly direct and has great technical ability.

I won’t lose any sleep if we don’t get the winger, but I will accept it if West Ham signs him in January.
