According to The Guardian, West Ham United are interested in bringing Borussia Dortmund forward Andre Schurrle back to the Premier League in January.

The Hammers have enjoyed something of an upturn in form under David Moyes, but just a point against Newcastle United and Bournemouth means Moyes may still look to the transfer market next month.

Whilst Moyes has attackers such as Marko Arnautovic, Manuel Lanzini, Michail Antonio, Andre Ayew, Diafra Sakho, Andy Carroll and Javier Hernandez at his disposal, it now seems that another forward is on his wish list.

The Guardian report that Moyes holds an interest in signing Borussia Dortmund ace Andre Schurrle, and could launch a January move to bring him back to the Premier League.

Schurrle, 27, has started only one Bundesliga game this season and made just three substitute appearances as he continues to struggle with Dortmund ahead of the World Cup.

The German international - who won the 2014 World Cup - may be looking for a loan exit in January, and West Ham could be willing to offer him an escape route back to the Premier League.

Schurrle had an 18-month spell with Chelsea in which he scored 14 goals in 65 games, and heading back to London could be appealing to the forward, who can play out wide or up front.

Whilst Moyes seemingly has too many forwards at his disposal already, a loan deal for Schurrle could just give the Hammers some extra firepower for the second half of the season as they attempt to avoid the drop.
