2. Boulaye Dia
As Moyes is such a fan of Antonio, why not sign a striker that is remarkably similar to him. Stade de Reims forward Boulaye Dia could be a very wise choice for the club to investigate. Like Antonio, Dia is quick, strong, powerful, and a nightmare for defences.
The Senegalese striker has been in great form this season in Ligue 1 scoring ten goals in sixteen appearances. The 24-year-old clearly knows where the goal is and arguably has better finishing ability than Antonio.
If Dia joined the Hammers, David Moyes would never have to worry about changing system due to an injury to a striker. Dia would press the same and make similar runs to that of West Ham’s Englishman.
Valued at £10.8m on transfermarkt, a deal for Dia could be similar to that of Armstrong. The Hammers would be able to lure the striker with higher wages. The main worry is beating other teams to his signature.
