Striker compared to Jamie Vardy is West Ham’s latest attacking target

Posted by

West Ham certainly appear to be scouring the market extensively for a striker, but they’re leaving it incredibly late to try and construct a deal.

A number of names have already been linked, but none have been secured by David Moyes, which suggests either they’re unobtainable or he is waiting for the right front man to come along.

They could be close to exactly that if reports from Sky Sports’ Dharmesh Sheth, cited by HITC, are proved to be correct.

Rhys Healey is a little-known 27-year-old currently ripping up Ligue 2 with Toulouse.

He has been compared to Leicester City’s fox in the box, Jamie Vardy and has also been around the block.

Before signing for the French outfit, Healey had done the rounds at Connah’s Quay Nomads, Cardiff, Colchester, Newport County, Torquay and MK Dons.

David Moyes’ West Ham are still flying high
With 15 goals in 25 games so far this season, Healey clearly knows where the goal is, albeit he’s never really played at Premier League level.
Moyes clearly sees something in him that he can work with, however, and the Scot has shown how well he can develop lower league talent with the likes of Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen amongst the most in-form Premier League marksmen.
With just over 24 hours to go before the window closes, Moyes and the West Ham board will need to get their collective fingers out if they want to get this one over the line.
