West Ham United plot ambitious move for big-name striker

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 19:50 Dec 19th 2016

Seven points from three games have catapulted West Ham up the Premier League table, so the East London outfit can now start to look up, rather than down.

Slaven Bilic’s men remain in desperate need of a reliable goalscorer, however, having struck just 19 times in 17 top-flight fixtures so far this season.

MARIO MANDZUKIC

According to reports in Football Italia, Mario Mandzukic could well be a January transfer target, particularly if Simone Zaza returns to Juventus following his disastrous loan spell with the Hammers.

Now 30, the Croatia international is unlikely to be at the peak of his powers, though Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still doing the business at five years his senior:

Since moving to Turin from Atletico Madrid, the powerful centre-forward has averaged a goal roughly once every 2.5 games in Serie A.

He showed exactly what he is capable of during his time at Bayern Munich, however, scoring 33 goals in his 43 Bundesliga starts and 11 substitute appearances.
