West Ham United haven’t been able to find their feet under Manuel Pellegrini so far this season as inconsistencies continue to cause problems.
The Hammers invested heavily during the summer months in preparation for the start of the current campaign, but the London club haven’t reaped many rewards. Although, it appears as if they’re looking at a potential addition, as according to the Sunday People (14/10; page 51) (via HITC), West Ham have been monitoring Alex Marshall.
Alex Marshall is in line for a move to England, with the likes of Liverpool, West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa and Leicester City all monitoring the forward.
Marshall currently plays for Cavalier in Jamaica’s top flight, and has a number of caps for his national team.
West Ham United currently don’t have a lot of depth at the pinnacle of the attack, so moving for the 20-year-old would provide them with the foundations to build for the future and he could be a force in the present.
Alex Marshall must be the real deal with all of these English clubs keeping tabs on him this season, so it will be interesting to see who secures his services in the future.
West Ham United could do with bringing in a striker with the likes of Andy Carroll and Javier Hernandez spending more time out of the side for different reasons.
