West Ham have been linked with plenty of strikers already this summer. Alexandre Lacazette, Michy Batshuayi and Callum Wilson have all been mentioned in the press.

So far they have not managed to bring anybody in but Gold assured a West Ham fan on Twitter last night that the search for a new striker was extensive:


West Ham are looking for a new striker to come in and challenge Andy Carroll for the starting role – with the futures of Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia seemingly unclear.

He was also commenting on Norwegian talent Martin Samuelsen. Signed last summer from Manchester City the teenager has shown off his talents playing for Peterborough on loan in 2015-16.

He had this to say about the teenage talent:


Samuelsen is currently on international duty with Norway and will be hoping to feature for the West Ham first-team next season.
