Alireza Jahanbakhsh would make West Ham a seriously scary attacking force

Alireza Jahanbakhsh of Iran shows his dejection following the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group B match between Iran and Spain at Kazan Arena on June 20, 2018 in Kazan, Russia.

West Ham United should make a move for the winger this summer.

The former coach of Manchester City, Chilean Manuel Pellegrini (L), arrives for the draw of the Copa Sudamericana football tournament, in Santiago, on July 12, 2016.

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has begun his summer rebuild in earnest at the London Stadium, bringing in a whole host of new players, and Hammers fans are finally getting excited at the prospect of their club making an assault on the European places this season.

The Chilean's business should be far from finished, though.

Despite the signing of Andriy Yaromlenko, Pellegrini will surely want to add further quality to his wide attacking options, with Manuel Lanzini having been ruled out for the entire season.

With this in mind, the Hammers should consider a move for AZ Alkmaar winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh.

The 24-year-old was in quite simply sensational form for the Dutch outfit last season, racking up 22 goals and 14 assists in 39 appearances in all competitions.

Jahanbakhsh is a right winger by trade, but he really can play anywhere along the front-line.

The Iran international possesses pace in abundance, and plays with a certain kind of directness that would undoubtedly help West Ham improve upon the potency of their play in the final third.

He is obviously a lethal finisher too.

Having Jahanbakhsh lined up alongside Yarmolenko and Felipe Anderson, who is close to sealing his switch to West Ham, would give the Hammers a totally different look to their attacking setup, and could turn them into one of the most dangerous front-lines in the Premier League.
