How West Ham could line up after January transfer window with new striker & Man Utd duo as Sheikh Jassim lines up bid | The Sun
WEST HAM could have a very different look in January as they eye up a new striker and a Manchester United duo.
Qatari royal Sheikh Jassim is reportedly ready to purchase a stake in the Hammers after being snubbed by United.
The Sheikh wanted a complete £5billion or the Red Devils, with the Glazers instead preferring to sell a smaller stake to Sir Jim Ratcliffe.
And some of that money could now find its way to East London instead.
That means manager David Moyes could be for a very busy January transfer window.
Top of the Scotsman's list is a new striker, with Danny Ings is yet to prove to be of any competition to No9 Michail Antonio.

Mexican hot-shot Santiago Gimenez may be the man to change that, following his remarkable goal-scoring form for Feyenoord.
Tottenham, Arsenal, Newcastle, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Juventus, Napoli, Lazio, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid all have their eyes on the 22-year-old.
And there is a valid reason for that as so far this term he has scored 15 times in 11 outings in all competitions.
The East London side did spark interest in the striker during the summer, but Gimenez ended up securing a long-term deal with the Eredivisie side until 2027.

That means he will not come cheap in the new year, as the Rotterdam club have already valued their frontman at £40million.
And Moyes could move for United's Anthony Martial if a deal for Gimenez cannot be done.
The Frenchman, still only 27, is in desperate need of a career lifeline.
The injury-plagued striker has not completed a full Premier League game since January 2021.
But Martial's experience, with over 300 games for United, could be a useful asset to Moyes, alongside right winger Jarrod Bowen.
And Martial could not be the only out-of-favour Red Devil moving to the London Stadium, with the Hammers ready to try again for Harry Maguire.
The Hammers offered £20m for the former United captain in the summer, but saw their bid rejected by the player.
However, Maguire has since hinted that he could leave in January ahead of Euro 2024 if he continues to receive limited game time.
England stalwart Maguire's experience would certainly be beneficial to Nayef Aguerd in the West Ham backline.
