Moyes admits he may not sign striker

West Ham manager David Moyes admits he may not bring a recognised striker to the London Stadium before the end of the transfer window.

The Hammers are largely reliant on Michail Antonio – who has started the season in sensational fashion – staying fit, though his workload and troublesome hamstrings are likely to be tested by a punishing schedule that now includes Europa League football and potential international football with Jamaica.

Andriy Yarmolenko and Jarrod Bowen, along with other players to a lesser extent, are capable of playing through the middle if required, but West Ham have long been linked with bringing another striker in to support Antonio.

However, with the transfer deadline fast approaching, Moyes concedes that he may not be able to sign a striker, despite being keen to do so.

Here’s what he told the press ahead of the weekend clash with Crystal Palace.
