West Ham surely do not have such an issue with a lack of attacking options that they need to consider bringing in an Arsenal flop who has scored one Premier League goal since November 2010, that coming against Blackburn Rovers.
Whilst Andy Carroll may be ruled out for a lengthy period Sam Allardyce’s side have managed a decent return of 21 goals in 16 Premier League matches, including three goals against Chelsea in recent weeks.
The Hammers can call upon Carlton Cole, who has hit a good run of form, as well as Modibo Maiga. Ricardo Vaz Te is set to return in the new year after dislocating a shoulder.
The East London side can also count on goals from their midfield, most frequently from captain Kevin Nolan so perhaps a panic measure to bring in the 28 year old Moroccan.
It’s also worth noting that Chamakh will more than likely be involved in African Cup of Nations in January and February.
