West Ham’s failure to sign a striker this season has come back to bite them on several occasions this campaign. The reluctancy to pay big money for a star man, combined with the injuries to fellow frontmen Andy Carroll and Diafra Sakho, has left man supporters disappointed so far at the London Stadium.

We’ve seen clubs such as Crystal Palace and Southampton spend rather large amounts of money on the likes of Christian Benteke and Manolo Gabbiadini. Simone Zaza was not the answer to our goal-scoring problems, hence why his loan deal was cut short to avoid paying a large permanent fee.

However, this summer will prove to be a massive transfer window for the Hammers. If the chairmen are serious about pushing for regular European nights in East London, then there is pressure on the board to spend big. So, here are five strikers that West Ham should consider buying in the summer.
