West Ham hit by major double striker blow ahead of reported January move

West Ham United have been hit by a major double Timo Werner blow ahead of a reported planned January move.

Although Divin Mubama is doing his best to convince them otherwise, West Ham need to sign a new striker in the January transfer window.

The Hammers should have replaced Gianluca Scamacca when he was sold to Atalanta in the summer.

Now injuries to Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio have exposed West Ham’s lack of depth in what is arguably the most important area of the team.

With Antonio and Danny Ings surely set for departures at the end of the season – if not before – there will be plenty of space for Mubama even if the Hammers do bring in a new forward in the winter window.

West Ham’s major double Werner blow

One of the club’s reported targets is RB Leipzig’s out of favour Timo Werner.

The likes of 90min have claimed Werner is interesting West Ham and other London clubs.

We reported on Hammers News that German sources have confirmed the club’s interest in signing Werner in six weeks’ time.

TeamTalk even claimed Werner could prefer a move to West Ham after they guaranteed knockout European football in the new year for a third consecutive season.

The prospect of signing Werner has sparked debate among fans as to whether it be a wise move for a player who ended up as a Premier League laughing stock at Chelsea.

Real problem but striker not interested either way

Well it seems Hammers fans don’t have to worry about that.

Because West Ham have been hit by major double Werner blow ahead of their reported planned January move.

According to BILD, not only are Real Madrid said to be genuinely interested in signing Werner on a short-term deal in January.

But the striker has no interest in leaving Leipzig for there or anywhere else, instead being fully focused on winning his place back.

The report reiterates West Ham’s interest in the striker and insists it is genuine.

BILD states Werner has no interest in leaving Leipzig, though, and is not taking interest from elsewhere seriously.

That should put paid to those rumours then, West Ham fans.

And perhaps it is for the best.
