Avram Grant is lining up a January move for Hapoel Tel Aviv striker Itay Shechter as the Upton Park boss looks for further attacking options for his under performing West Ham side. The Israeli international had a superb season last term netting 31 goals in all competitions as he helped his side to a domestic double.
The 23 year old was also a big success in Europa League competition and it may be those performances as well as Champions League outings this season, that have made him a much sought after signing. He also netted a superb solo effort against Croatia on the weekend to further his fast growing reputation.
West Ham have scored just five goals in the Premier League this season with only two of those coming from recognised strikers and with Carlton Cole also suffering a bout of poor form a move for a new signing seems ever more necessary.
A move for Shechter would cost around £6m and Hapoel Tel Aviv would find it hard to prevent the talented striker from making such a big step up the footballing ladder.
