West Ham have struggled so far this season, and are currently languishing in 16th place in the Premier League, just one point above the relegation zone.

Slaven Bilic’s men have fallen well short of expectations so far this campaign, in addition to their Premier League woes they crashed out of the Europa League in embarrassing fashion during qualifying. This is all the more surprising as The Irons are coming off the back of a superb first season under Bilic, in which they claimed some famous wins on their way to a 7th placed finish.

The same can’t be said this season, despite the continued brilliance of Dimitri Payet, who still ranks amongst Europe’s top chance creators.

So far this season they’ve really been struggling to score, at the same time as leaking goals like a sieve, not a good combination.

The Hammers need goals to drive themselves up the Premier League and so with that in mind here’s THREE reasons West Ham must sign a striker this January.
