Gold and Sullivan need to bring this £13.5m-rated striker to West Ham if they stay up this season

The hope is becoming thinner and thinner that West Ham can beat away their relegation worries this season. Fans of the Hammers here in the Tavern are furious with their owners but even they now know that, if West Ham can stay in the Premier League, money has to be spent wisely this summer.

West Ham are a problem-ridden club at the moment with barely any positive news coming out of the club. The players on the pitch, simply put, have not played for the badge and seem not to care about the potential of being relegated. The remaining games this season will prove to be make or break in their quest to beat the drop and avoid potential the embarrassment of having to play Championship games at the London Stadium.

If that statement becomes reality, a player that would assure a resurgence in Premier League form is French striker Alassane Plea, who is valued at £13.50 million on Transfermarkt. The Nice striker has made 42 appearances already this season, scoring 15 goals and assisting his team-mates on five occasions. His impressive form should be considered by the West Ham board as someone who has the potential to bring goals and excitement to the London Stadium.

West Ham’s two top-goalscorers Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez don’t have enough goals between them (14) compared to Plea’s solo 15 strikes this season. This has just been one problem for the Hammers this season and for the rest of the season, goals simply have to start flying in.

With David Gold and Sullivan under huge pressure to help get the fans back on side, the punters propping up our bar believe Plea would be a signing to help ease relations, even just a little bit.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

West Ham at the moment seem to be facing relegation head-on but with their tough run-in, it’s touch and go as to whether they will be staying in the top flight of English football. Alassane Plea would undoubtedly make a good signing for the Hammers but this would only be possible if they remain in the Premier League.
