The Hammers in the Transfer Tavern tonight are dancing on the pool tables following a report on their club’s official website

For much of the past few months, the East London outfit have been linked with a number of big names ahead of their seismic move to the Olympic Stadium this summer.

Marquee attacking names such as Christian Benteke, Alexandre Lazazette and Michy Batshuayi have all been linked with a move to East London.

Arsenal forward Theo Walcott and Leicester City hero Jamie Vardy are also understood to have come across their radar.

After a wonderful season under the stewardship of Slaven Bilic, the Irons will no doubt be looking to improve on such foundations in their stunning new home.

While the report stops short of naming the individual, it does cryptically reveal a major signing could soon be on the way.

‘It is my understanding that the Club have made £20million bids for UK based players this week and they hope to sign the first of two strikers in the next few weeks’, read the statement.

Who do you think it could be? How badly do they even need a striker?
