West Ham United fans can breathe a sigh of relief as a late Javier Hernandez brace helped secure all three points at the London Stadium earlier on today.
The Hammers’ European dream is very much still alive at this moment in time as they managed to close the gap on the likes of Watford and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Indeed, it must be nice for supporters to see Mark Arnautovic back in the starting lineup after all the drama involving his future back in the January transfer window. But, it’s safe to say that he’s struggled during his substitute appearances, so he could look to move in the summer with things not exactly going perfectly.
Interestingly, the London club already appear to be weighing up their options ahead of the summer transfer window, as according to Claret & Hugh, West Ham will launch a move to sign Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic.
Mitrovic was on fire in the Championship last season but he hasn’t quite been able to help the Cottagers climb away from the relegation zone as they look destined for relegation. The Serbian has still managed to produce a respectable 10 goals and two assists in the Premier League, so it’s clear to see he can produce in the top-flight.
Arnautovic is arguably the best attacker at the London Stadium at this moment in time but he’s not exactly the No. 9 that the Hammers are calling out for. Mitrovic would be a far better option as he’s a natural goalscorer and he would benefit Manuel Pellegrini’s style with the ability to hold up the ball and draw players in.
West Ham United fans, would you rather have Mitrovic or Arnautovic?
