West Ham are hoping to bring back their very best form after the international break as their great run of form was ended in disappointing fashion.
With a loss against Brighton, despite all the Hammers efforts against Everton, Chelsea and Manchester United, West Ham still find themselves just above the relegation zone and that is not what fans want to see.
West Ham have a talented bunch of players that had found their rhythm but that loss has highlighted the need for more attacking options specifically.
Javier Hernandez has been ruled out by illness for the majority of the season so far and Andy Carroll is a striker no one can rely on meaning the Hammers could be smart to invest in another attacker to accompany Marko Arnautovic and Lucas Perez, taking a risk on the MLS sensation Josef Martinez.
Martinez, who is valued at £5.8 million on Transfermarkt, is a player that has torn the MLS to pieces, surely prompting European sides to take an interest in the Venezuelan international.
The 25-year-old managed to score a staggering 30 goals in 32 games last season for Atlanta United, figures that suggest he could be a risk worth investing in for West Ham.
He is blessed with phenomenal pace and that in the Premier League could be a major asset to have, allowing him to breeze past defenders and create chances for himself and others to score from.
As well he could be utilised out wide meaning the Hammers have more options in all aspects of attacking and he could be a player that makes the transition from MLS to the Premier League look easy.
