Barry Fry insists that West Ham United will sign a new striker this summer as they bid to reinforce David Moyes’ squad.
The Hammers are preparing for a campaign that will involve both the Premier League and the Europa League.
The Irons only have one out-and-out striker at the club, in Michail Antonio, and they are subsequently in need of reinforcements this summer.
Who should West Ham sign?
Ivan Toney, the former Posh striker who has helped Brentford into the Premier League, is another who has been linked with a potential move to the club.
And Fry insists that, having spoken to senior figures at the club, they are well aware of their need to bring a new forward into the fold this summer.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “Speaking to everybody at West Ham, they all agree that they need a centre-forward to strengthen their squad.
“The centre-forward at the minute has had a hell of a season but he is injury prone and he misses a few and they lack another forward so they will definitely, in my opinion, sign another centre-forward, whether it’s Abraham, whether it’s Ivan Toney, whoever, I think they’ll go for a centre-forward.
“Whether they get him or not I don’t know but they’ll push the boat out to do that. That’s a certainty.”
