West Ham United appear to be continuing their efforts in making their squad as strong as possible this summer and could look to bring an eighth addition to the London Stadium.
Manuel Pellegrini has already spent near the £100million mark in making sure his side is ready for the upcoming Premier League campaign with the ambition of taking the Irons into European football.
He has strengthened the defence with the additions of Lukasz Fabianski in goal; Fabian Balbuena, Issa Diop and Ryan Fredericks at the back; Jack Wilshere, Andriy Yarmolenko and Felipe Anderson in the midfield and now it looks as though he has his sights on a forward to complete a squad overhaul.
According to ExWHUemployee, who has proved to break an untold amount of stories on Twitter about the Hammers, the club are thought to be very keen on a Paraguay international.
As I am not on radio show this week here is one forward we are very keen on: Angel Romero,26 year old striker for Corinthians. Former team mate of Fabian Balbuena and a Paraguay international.Twin brother of Oscar Romero. Pellegrini and Husillos very aware of him. ⚒

It is believed that Corinthians’ Angel Romero is on Pellegrini and Husillos’ radar with the pair very aware of how the striker operates and like what they have seen from him.
The 26-year-old does not have the best goals per game ratio, with just 15 in 125 appearances (via Transfermarkt). However, it should be noted that he is not an out-and-out striker, as he can play on both wings as well.
Pellegrini and Husillos should be trusted with an addition like Romero, as it is very likely that they have seen something that others have not if they are very keen on the South American.
He is a former team-mate of Balbuena, so a reunion with his countryman could be beneficial to starting life at the London Stadium well should he join them.
