West Ham must land 6 ft 4 forward who's "out of this world", it won't cost GSB a penny - opinion
West Ham boss David Moyes should urge a free transfer swoop for Olivier Giroud as he'd be the perfect foil to Michail Antonio next season.According to Italian news outlet Calciomercato, there is a lot of interest in the out-of-contract Chelsea striker this summer, with teams in the Serie A and Premier League monitoring his situation. The likes of Juventus, Inter Milan, AS Roma and Lazio have been mentioned, as well as the Irons, who could battle their top-flight rivals Crystal Palace for his signature.

West Ham United’s priority this summer remains the addition of a new striker…
What’s the word?
According to The Athletic‘s Roshane Thomas, there have been two names heavily linked with the Hammers – Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham and Czech Republic wonderkid Adam Hlozek.
Last month, the Irons’ interest in the 18-year-old goalscoring sensation was ramped up amid interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs, including Borussia Dortmund, who are renowned for their shrewd operations in the transfer market.
GSB now want to sign 23-goal ‘absolute predator’ for West Ham this summer - Report
According to a report by Turkish newspaper Sozcu, via Sport Witness, GSB and West Ham United are now interested in signing Beskitas forward Cyle Larin this summer. The Lowdown: Hammers striker search continues Irons boss David Moyes has been on the hunt for a new forward since January, with the Scotsman himself confirming that bids […]Irons boss David Moyes has been on the hunt for a new forward since January, with the Scotsman himself confirming that bids had indeed been lodged in attempts to bolster the forward line.
It’s thought that the Sparta Prague teenager is available for between £15m and £20m, as per Football Insider, which could represent stunning value for money.
It’s no wonder that David Moyes is longing for a new forward to bolster the Hammers’ squad as he has been woefully short on options in the role since the January transfer window, when club-record signing Sebastian Haller was sold to Ajax.
If the east Londoners are to stand a chance at repeating this season’s exploits, on top of giving a good account of themselves, then they need a player who can take them to new heights.
That man can be Hlozek.
Abraham, who was snubbed from Chelsea’s entire squad for their Champions League final triumph this weekend, is expected to cost in excess of £40m, which seems a little absurd for someone who cannot make the 23-man cut for such a historic match.
"I think" - ExWHUemployee drops exciting West Ham transfer claim, fans surely buzzing - opinion
West Ham could blow their transfer budget on three key transfer targets, if everything goes to plan, according to the ever-reliable ExWHUemployee.The ever-reliable ExWHUemployee dropped an update on the Irons’ transfer plans on a recent episode of ‘The West Ham Way’ podcast, where he suggested that the East London club could splash their budget on three key targets.
Hlozek could instead be the answer for a much cheaper and realistic fee.
The young talisman capped off his phenomenal season with four goals against Zbrojovka Brno at the weekend, taking his total to 15 goals and nine assists in just 19 appearances, via Transfermarkt. Much of his campaign has been derailed by injury, yet he’s still managed to contribute a goal or assist every 63 minutes.
It’s no wonder he has been lauded as an “incredible talent” and a “phenomenal player” by football scout Jacek Kulig as well as being dubbed “hugely talented” by manager Pavel Vrba.
At just 18, he would represent a change of direction for the Hammers as they very rarely invest in young players with huge potential. For example, fellow Czech natives Vladimir Coufal (28) and Tomas Soucek (26) are considerably further in their development whilst Craig Dawson (31) has provided plenty of experience at the back.
GSB could boost West Ham's UEL claims by signing 6 ft 4 powerhouse who "will explode" - opinion
West Ham United could bolster their Europa League ambitions by signing Marseille powerhouse Duje Caleta-Car this summer.That’s according to The Athletic‘s Roshane Thomas, who claims that the Irons could reignite their interest in the Marseille centre-back now that they have qualified for Europe.
Hlozek could fit right in with two of his compatriots already at the London Stadium, which surely only bolsters West Ham’s claims in their attempt to secure him this summer.
Forget Abraham, the club’s GSB ownership must sanction a move for the impressive Czech wonderkid. He could be the one to take the Irons onto the next level, while he could net them plenty of profit in the future. It could be a game-changer of a signing.
