Can Albert Adomah be West Ham's next Antonio?

West Ham manager David Moyes looks on during the Premier League match between Manchester City and West Ham United at Etihad Stadium on December 3, 2017 in Manchester, England.

Aston Villa's Albert Adomah is one of the Championship's in-form players, should West Ham be moving when the transfer window reopens?

Albert Adomah's form has been the key to Aston Villa's rise from 18th to fourth in the Championship over the last three months. 

The Ghanaian has scored 10 league goals since the 16th of September and has been a real match winner for Steve Bruce's side. 

The transfer window opens in less than a month and inevitably, he will attract interest from Premier League clubs. 

There will be a handful of teams willing to take a gamble on the 29-year-old and one of those should be West Ham United, a team in dire need of an improved goal threat.

They signed a player from the Championship as recently as 2015 when they bought Michail Antonio, who went on to be their top scorer last season.

West Ham have not won in eight league games and are in need of a lift. Adomah is full of confidence and his energy could be the spark David Moyes needs to help kick start the Hammers season. 

Adomah will be keen to impress in the Premier League after he was let go by Middlesbrough two games into their Premier League campaign last season.

The Hammers lack out and out wingers. Antonio is their only natural wide-man. Marko Arnautovic and Andre Ayew can also play out wide but they prefer to play more advanced roles. 

The former Bristol City man has already proven he can be a positive catalyst for change at Villa Park and that is exactly what West Ham require at the moment.
