West Ham had some great highs in 2016, the last game at the Boleyn Ground beating Manchester United 3-2, springs to mind for most of our Hammers faithful here at the Transfer Tavern.
Still, the latter stages of 2016 haven’t been the best for Slaven Bilic’s men and the punters here will be hoping for some changes come 2017!
The East Londoners haven’t been the most clinical in front of goal and it’s clear that they need to bring in a new striker with the imminent departure of Simone Zaza, who hasn’t lived up to the hype having only signed on loan in the summer.
With Zaza and the likes of Jonathan Calleri and Sofiane Feghouli not working out as expected, it is thought that the club will look to recruit from within the Premier League after how horrifically wrong recruiting from abroad went.
With the Irons not hitting the heights they were expected to this season, it’ll be hard to lure in a world-class forward that they may have wished for, but that for sure doesn’t mean they can’t bring in the quality.
With that, we take a look at how Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson, who has been targeted by the club in the media and certainly represents someone who could make a big difference to Bilic’s sides fortunes.
So, if they were to buy Wilson in January, here is how we think they may line-up.
