The mission for West Ham is very simple this summer, find a new starting striker.
With Felipe Anderson taking most of the attacking burden last season, the Hammers are in need of a man up front who can deliver the goals that the team have sorely missed for the past few months, and with the likes of Andy Carroll and Lucas Perez likely to leave, the requirement for a new striker is even greater.
The past few weeks has seen West Ham been linked with the likes of Aleksandar Mitrovic and Salomon Rondon, but now a new striker has been thrown into the mix in the form of Al-Ahli Saudi FC forward Djaniny.
According to A Bola, the Cape Verde international has caught the eye of West Ham as well as several other Premier League clubs after a sensational year in the Saudi Pro League, scoring 23 goals and assisting eight in all competitions this season, and Djaniny could be the man to solve the Hammer’s attacking problems.
The 28-year-old forward is hitting the peak of his career after two brilliant years in both the Saudi Arabia and in Mexico with Santos Laguna a season prior, and at 6’2”, Djaniny has the physicality to be a menace in the Premier League.
Blessed with pace and an eye for goal, the former Benfica man can be a real asset for the Hammers next season alongside Anderson. But, with other teams circling, Manuel Pellegrini needs to move in fast if he is to get his man.
West Ham fans, can Djaniny be the player to solves the club’s striker problems? Let us know!
