West Ham United haven’t been able to ensure consistency in the Premier League in recent times, which has had a negative affect on their push for a European spot.
The Hammers have the right man in charge and the funds to go out and secure a number of quality transfers, so the foundations are very much laid for them to succeed during the second half of the season.
David Gold and David Sullivan managed to secure two gem signings back in the summer transfer window in the form of Issa Diop and Felipe Anderson. But, with there still being the need to strengthen this month, perhaps the Hammers can eclipse their impressive summer business in January.
With that being said, Gold and Sullivan can eclipse Anderson and Diop swoop with these TWO January signings…
Gabriel Barbosa has become very well-known to West Ham United supporters over the past month or so as their side continue to be linked with a move for the Brazilian. He was prolific during his time at Santos, scoring 19 goals.
Indeed, the Hammers have been very limited on numbers at the pinnacle of the attack in the current campaign, as Andy Carroll spent most of the first half of the season out injured and Javier Hernandez has struggled at times.
Therefore, the London club will be desperate to secure the services of Gabriel Barbosa as he could establish himself as a potential hero at the London Stadium, with his ability to score goals helping cure the Hammers’ lack of threat a the pinnacle of the attack and making him a very dangerous asset.
The Hammers have reportedly (as per the Sun) made a £20 million bid for Barcelona’s Denis Suarez.
Sadly, the Spaniard has struggled to work his way into Ernesto Valverde’s plans in the current campaign, but there’s no doubt about his ability as he has been a shining light throughout his career.
West Ham United haven’t enjoyed a very successful time of things in the middle of midfield as Declan Rice often finds himself picking up the pieces. But, things could all change if Suarez moves to the English capital as he would offer a different dynamic completely, with the ability to contribute in the final third and in defensive areas.
