The Hammers have been unsuccessful in recent transfer windows with their efforts to replace striker Sebastien Haller, who left the club in January 2021.


Michail Antonio has remained the only senior striker available to West Ham boss David Moyes, during a campaign in which they have also had European football to deal with.



Moyes is looking to bolster his squad in the forthcoming window and has identified centre-back and striker as two priority positions.


And West Ham have already made Torino hitman Belotti a three-year contract offer, in the hopes of bringing him to the London Stadium in the summer.



The Italian’s current deal with the Serie A side expires at the end of this season and he is set to be available on a free transfer in the next window.


However, Belotti will keep West Ham waiting as he will only take a decision on his future once he evaluates all the options available to him.



The Hammers now face a wait to see if the striker is willing to move to the London Stadium.


In addition to West Ham, their Premier League rivals Newcastle United are also credited with interest in the 28-year-old.
