West Ham United have been working hard this summer to improve their squad ahead of the upcoming Premier League season and have been successful in doing so.
Manuel Pellegrini has been bolstering his side in all areas of the field so far apart from up front, however, it does not appear that it will be too long before the attacking options are improved.
Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko, Felipe Anderson and Issa Diop are amongst names to have joined the London Stadium club this summer as the new manager looks to take them into European football.
According to a report in Italy, Gazzetta Dello Sport are claiming the Hammers have made an enquiry for Torino’s M’Baye Niang, with the playing having only just joined the Serie A outfit from AC Milan permanently.
West Ham are in need of adding to their attacking options with just Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic thought to be their main options, especially with Andy Carroll being ruled out for the beginning of the year with another injury concern.
Niang seems to be a strange option for West Ham to pursue this season as they look to bring attacking options to the club.
The Senegal international is undoubtedly talented, however, his goalscoring form leaves a little to be desired. He has netted just 33 times in 191 appearances throughout his short career, including two for Watford during a short loan spell back in 2017.
However, for the lack of threat he has in scoring, he makes up for with his other qualities, as he can run at defences with terrific pace and has a great deal of skill that could make him a handful.
