After failing to find a half-way acceptable striker during the last transfer window, West Ham will presumably spend the next few months trying to right those wrongs.

The Hammers are said to be considering a move for Napoli striker Leonardo Pavoletti, according to Tutto Mercato Web.

The 28-year-old journeyman striker enjoyed a great two-year spell with Genoa, netting 25 goals in 46 appearances before completing a £15.3m move to high-flying Napoli during the January transfer window.

In a forward line that includes Dries Mertens, Lorenzo Insigne, Arkadiusz Milik and Jose Callejon, Pavoletti has struggled for game time for Napoli, making just nine appearances and two starts in Serie A since his arrival.

Marseille are also believed to be interested in signing the former Sassuolo striker as they look to build a squad capable of knocking off Monaco and PSG at the top of Ligue 1.

West Ham will be expected to watch Jonathan Calleri, Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia leave the club in the summer which opens the door for several possible fresh faces in attack.
