Name: Alexandre Pato
Club: Sao Paulo
It was always going to be a special year for West Ham, playing their last ever season at the Boleyn Ground, home of the Hammers since 1904. However, this term has the potential to be even greater with the London club looking in good shape to challenge for Europe.
Injuries to key player, and one of the buys of the season, Dimitri Payet has stalled progression slightly with no win in six league games, but Slaven Bilic will be hoping his debut campaign is one to look back on with fondness.
With other attacking threats also spending time on the sideline, fresh new legs upfront are needed to get them going again. Twenty-six-year-old forgotten Brazilian, Alexandre Pato, would be a dream late Christmas gift and one which could maintain the Irons’ top-six challenge.
