Karren Brady says that West Ham United want to sign a striker in the summer transfer window.

West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady has revealed to The Daily Mail that the club want to sign a proven goalscorer in the summer transfer window.

Brady has disclosed that West Ham want to recruit a striker who can score 20 goals in the Premier League, but she has admitted that it will not be easy.

“The co-chairman, David Sullivan, has recruited well and has been working on new players for months,” the 47-year-old told The Daily Mail.

“We want a goalscorer, someone who can score 20 goals in the Premier League. Easier said than done, but David loves hunting for players on behalf of the manager and the team.”

West Ham have a good team, but they do need a proven striker who can help them push for a top-six or a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Andy Carroll, Diafra Sakho, Emmanuel Emenike and Enner Valencia are not bad strikers, but they are not of the quality to elevate West Ham to a higher level.

The problem is whether the Hammers can find a striker who will guarantee them 20 goals in the Premier League.

Would a world-class striker be willing to join West Ham despite the fact that the London outfit will play in front of over 50,000 fans at the Olympic Stadium next season?
