Speaking to the press, via football.london, West Ham United boss David Moyes has dropped another transfer update as his side pursue a striker signing in January – going on to confirm that the Hammers have ‘put offers in’ for ‘two or three’ targets.
The Scotsman has been forthcoming of GSB’s plans to bring in a replacement for club record signing Sebastien Haller even though he would apparently prefer to keep it private – but with so many players being spoken to, and agents in working, this is proving more and more difficult (ExWHUemployee).
Who should West Ham sign in January?
In this update on a striker search, Moyes has confirmed that the club have ‘put offers in’ for two or three targets whilst revealing the club have backed him wherever possible.

Moyes also states that he ‘certainly’ wants to bring in a new forward, but he is ‘mindful’ of the financial situations surrounding other clubs and wishes to approach potential transfers with caution.
“We see the NHS has been struggling, we so many difficulties outside of football, we love football, and do I want a top striker? I certainly do,” explained Moyes via football.london.
“I really do to help us. But I am also mindful that football clubs, a lot of them are on the verge of going bust and I have got to make sure that I do things correctly.
“But I have got to say the board has definitely tried to support me and back me in getting players in.
“We have probably tried for two or three, we have put offers in for two or three or sort of tried to see if it can happen. I am hoping we can add to the squad.”
Transfer Tavern take
Judging by this admission, Moyes remains optimistic in potentially bringing a striker to east London, but is also approaching any business with an open mind given the nature of football at this present moment.
One enticing reveal could be that the board have been attempting to back Moyes, all while he confirms offers have been made, but it remains to be seen whether they do manage to find a Haller replacement this month.
