West Ham United put in a dominant performance last time out against Newcastle United at the London Stadium as they secured a 2-0 victory.
The Hammers currently find themselves in a promising position in the race for a European spot, so they’ll be desperate to ensure consistency in what could turn out to be a season-defining period.
Edin Dzeko impressed during his time in the Premier League under Manuel Pellegrini, so perhaps the Argentine can bring the very best out of the Bosnia and Herzegovina international at the London Stadium.
Nevertheless, here are the potential consequences of signing Edin Dzeko in the summer…
MANUEL PELLEGRINI LANDS ANDY CARROLL REPLACEMENT
Andy Carroll spent time out on the sidelines due to injury during the first half of the season, and it’s safe to say that he hasn’t exactly impressed since returning as he’s struggled to secure a regular starting place.
Interestingly, the Englishman’s contract is set to run out at the end of the season and he hasn’t exactly done enough to warrant a future at West Ham, so it looks as if they’ll decide against offering him a new deal.
Therefore, Manuel Pellegrini could draft Edin Dzeko in as a potential replacement for Carroll, as they operate in the same position and the 32-year-old can ensure a constant flow of goals at the pinnacle of the attack.
STRIKER PROBLEM SOLVED
Dzeko has produced 12 goals and seven assists this season, so it’s clear to see that he can provide and find the back of the net in the final third, which is something that has gone at the pinnacle of the attack for the Hammers.
Indeed, the likes of Javier Hernandez, Michail Antonio and Andy Carroll have all struggled to have a positive impact on a regular basis this season, as consistency has been a real issue.
However, Dzeko has previous experience in the Premier League from his time at Manchester City and he’s scored an impressive amount of goals in recent years at AS Roma, so he could definitely solve the Hammers’ striker problem.
