As it has become evident that Diafra Sakho's contribution to this seson's campaign is likely to be minimal with news that he is only now entering a 'preseason' regime, Betfair have revealed the odds on the most likely Premiership-savvy strikers that the Hammers will sign in the Summer.
Wayne Rooney is quoted at 10-1! The whole business seems odd given that he has no affiliation to the club and is known to want to return to his beloved Toffees before his career ends.
At 8-1 is Alex Oxlade Chamberlain who has grown tired of feeding off crumbs at Arsenal and wants regular first team action.
Daniel Sturridge has been a long-term target for Slaven Bolic and, despite his injury-proneness is quoted at 5-1.
Favourite though is Jermain Defoe at 9-4. With his Sunderland contract set to end on the Summer he has unfinished business at West Ham.
We reckon none of the above will make the switch.
