Trevor Sinclair has urged West Ham United to go out and sign AFC Bournemouth forward Joshua King in January.
West Ham have endured an impressive start to the 2020/21 season, and sit fifth in the Premier League table having won six of their first 12 league matches.
The Hammers came from behind to defeat Leeds United at Elland Road last night, with goals from Tomas Soucek and Angelo Ogbonna securing the win for David Moyes’ side.
Many fans feel as if a new striker should be brought in in January, though, with Sebastian Haller struggling to make an impact when leading the line last night.
Former West Ham striker Trevor Sinclair has urged David Moyes to go out and sign Josh King in January, if they wish to “finish amongst the elite” come the end of the season.
West Ham had a £13million bid rejected for King in the summer, and the 28-year-old has since featured only five times for Bournemouth in the Championship last term.
The Norway international scored six goals in the Premier League last season, and is out of contract at the end of the season.
This would be a good signing and you’d expect West Ham to reignite interest in King in January.
He hasn’t been in the greatest of form this term, but he is a good Premier League player who can be a real handful on his day.
He can play up top or out wide, making him a potentially useful option for Moyes.
