Gold and Sullivan must look at signing Giroud and Clyne in January

Gold and Sullivan must look at signing Giroud and Clyne in January

West Ham United have been rather impressive in recent times as they finally appear to be heading in the right direction under Manuel Pellegrini, after a rather nervy start.

The Hammers drafted in a number of players during the summer transfer window as they welcomed the likes of Ryan Fredericks, Felipe Anderson, Issa Diop, Andriy Yarmolenko, Lukasz Fabianski, Carlos Sanchez, Lucas Perez, Fabian Balbuena and Jack Wilshere to the London Stadium.

However, with injuries currently taking their toll and improvements required in certain areas, supporters will be hoping that David Gold and David Sullivan can secure a couple more signings in January.

With that in mind, Pellegrini can rely on Gold & Sullivan to empty their pockets to secure these TWO signings…

OLIVIER GIROUD

Olivier Giroud has struggled to find his feet at Stamford Bridge in the current campaign, as Maurizio Sarri continues to swap between him and Alvaro Morata at the pinnacle of the attack.

There’s no doubt that the Frenchman can guarantee you goals, but a lack of minutes this season has meant that he has only been able to produce five goals and four assists.

The Hammers enjoyed a lot of success with Andy Carroll in their ranks in the past, so they should look at bringing a target man like Giroud to the London Stadium to try and ensure a consistent flow of goals.

NATHANIEL CLYNE

Nathaniel Clyne has been plagued with injuries at Liverpool over the past season or so, and he is still yet to return to proceedings in the current campaign due to an ongoing issue.

However, he won’t be guaranteed a place in the side once he returns to full fitness as Trent Alexander-Arnold has been incredible for the Reds this season, so a January transfer window exit could be in the offing.

Of course, the Hammers could look at taking him on loan, but they should skip that part and head straight for the permanent deal as he was arguably the best English right-back before his injury and could still do a job.
