West Ham are in the market for at least one striker this summer following the respective departures of Andy Carroll, Lucas Perez to Deportivo Alaves and Marko Arnautovic to Shanghai SIPG.
The latter forced through a move to the Chinese Super League side earlier this month, after failing in his attempts to move in January, meaning Javier Hernandez is now the Hammers’ only recognised striker.
However, the Mexico international has also been linked with a move away this summer, with a number of La Liga sides said to be interested.
The Hammers’ main target had appeared to be Celta Vigo striker Maxi Gomez, but a proposed £45million move now looks set to be off, with the Uruguayan reportedly closing in on a move to Valencia.
And following the news of Gomez’s potential move to West Ham falling through, we’ve identified six alternative strikers that Manuel Pellegrini could look to sign as he looks to strengthen his striking options.
Belotti has been a key figure for Torino in recent season’s, and the 25-year-old is reportedly a target for West Ham.
Kramaric was a key figure for Hoffenheim last season, scoring 22 goals and creating five assists in all competitions.
The Hammers would face competition from AC Milan should they pursue the 28-year-old, however.
Morelos’ future at Rangers is still subject to speculation and Steven Gerrard is reportedly willing to sell the Colombian for a fee in the region of £20million.
Haller was a key figure for Eintracht Frankfurt last season, scoring 20 goals in all competitions to help the German outfit reach the Europa League semi-final.
Wilson is another who is said to be a target for West Ham this summer, with the England international impressing with his form for Bournemouth in recent seasons.
Balotelli is available on a free transfer this summer after his contract with Marseille expired, and Pellegrini could be tempted to gamble on the Italian.
