West Ham United are keen on improving their attacking options this summer, and they have identified Wolfsburg striker Wout Weghorst as a potential target as per Calciomercato.

The 28-year-old has been in fantastic form for the German side this season, bagging 25 goals and nine assists.

SL View: Much-needed upgrade on Antonio

The Hammers have been reliant on Michail Antonio to lead the line, and David Moyes will need more options at his disposal next year.

Antonio is not a specialist striker, and Weghorst would be an upgrade on the West Ham ace.

The Hammers will be playing Europa League football next season and must add more quality to the squad during the summer transfer window.

Signing a quality number nine should be a top priority for the Hammers, and they will hope to agree a deal with the German outfit for the striker.

Weghorst has been linked with a move to the Premier League in the past, and a move to West Ham could be ideal for him at this stage of his career.

The Londoners can offer him European football and the chance to showcase his talent in the Premier League.

Moyes sold Sebastien Haller to Ajax during the January transfer window, and West Ham are yet to spend the proceeds from the sale. They should be able to afford the Dutch striker.

Weghorst has a contract with Wolfsburg until 2023 and is likely to be available for a reasonable price.
