West Ham could move for potential free agent this summer

West Ham United could make a move for Everton forward Joshua King, with the Norwegian set to leave the club this summer.

King signed for Everton on a short-term deal during the January transfer window but has hardly featured for the Toffees.

The attacker has made nine Premier League appearances, but they only amount to 123 minutes of football, with King still waiting for his first Everton start.

King’s faces an uncertain future, with Everton needing to decide ahead of the summer transfer window.

King will also be wary that he may not get much playing time if he remains at Goodison Park and could look elsewhere for minutes on the pitch.

According to TalkSPORT reporter Alex Crook, the 29-year-old could be on his way to London this summer.

“West Ham have got a long-standing interest in Joshua King,” Crook explained on TalkSPORT. 

“He hasn’t pulled up any trees at Everton, so you’d imagine he’d be available as a cheaper option to (Tammy) Abraham.”

SL View – Would King be a good signing for West Ham?

While King’s move to Everton has not worked out as he and the Toffees would have expected, the forward would be a great option for West Ham.

Should their reported move for Abraham fall through, King offers a low-risk and low-cost option with plenty of Premier League experience.

As King only signed a short-term deal with Everton, he could end up leaving for nothing in the summer transfer window.

Michail Antonio and Sébastien Haller have both struggled in front of goal this season, with Jesse Lingard, Tomáš Souček and Jarred Bowen outscoring them.#

David Moyes will be looking to strengthen his attack in the transfer window, and King could be a useful acquisition.
