Back in October, we covered a story from TuttoMercatoWeb claiming that West Ham were interested in Anderlecht’s Lukasz Teodorczyk, who were said to be potentially facing competition from Torino if Andrea Belotti were to leave the club.
That wasn’t exactly news to us, as the Belgian press had already suggested the Hammers were keeping an eye on the Poland international in May, but it did confirm something we already all knew, and that’s the fact the London club aren’t happy with their strikers.
The change of manager hasn’t exactly changed that, with West Ham still struggling to find the back of the net, but what might be of interest to fans is that there’s a good chance David Moyes will still be interested in signing Teodorczyk.
Earlier this year, his Sunderland side were also said to be interested in the Anderlecht forward, who has hit a bit of a rough patch recently. Sunderland interested was always optimistic, and that would likely be the case even now.
This, however, could be good news for West Ham, as DH in Belgium state there’s a good chance the Belgian side could sell the Polish striker in January, as they are currently looking for a new goalscorer.
With a rather large squad at Hein Vanhaezebrouck’s disposal, and Teodorczyk needing to continue to play if he wants to make the Poland squad for the World Cup, an exit could be on the cards.
One to definitely keep an eye on, as David Moyes is very likely to want to change one or two things going into the second half of the season. If Sunderland are still keen, it’s unlikely Chris Coleman will be able to compete should West Ham come knocking.
